Optimize your energy through automations – we can help you get started

Why we want to help you manage your energy more efficiently

We ventured into the world of Internet of Things (IoT) back in 2006. Even back then, we were confident that IoT has the power to help a better world, a smarter world. Moreover, we wanted to gain as much technological knowledge from this arena, as possible, because we had, and still have, a larger goal in mind. To help others manage their energy more efficiently, through automations.

The reason why we want to help you manage your energy more efficiently is because, we believe that energy optimization is a necessary step towards a more sustainable future. A future, where the price on energy is not incrementally increased. A future, where every company has equal access to the grid, for the same affordable price, without major economic cost.

However, in order for us to get closer to this vision, we all have to start optimizing our energy consumption.

 

Change is difficult but automating them is easy

Energy efficiency management is, relatively, easier said than done. It may seem difficult when you do not know where to start. Where do you even waste energy? And where do you find your saving potential?

Do not worry. We can help you.

The where is simple to answer, through ShowMe, which is our energy efficiency management tool. ShowMe provides you with an overview of your idle energy consumption, amongst other real-time data. You get an overview of where you use your energy. And it lets you know where the saving potentials are.

Energy efficiency makes sense

Being able to see the distribution of your energy consumption is beneficial. That is because you have a better idea of how to optimize your overall  consumption. For instance, by consuming energy at points during the day, when energy is cheaper. Or at points where there is more capacity in energy grid.

Knowing where and how you use your energy is a very good starting point. Because a clear idea of your baseline energy consumption, leaves room to initiate relevant actionable steps, towards optimizing your annual energi consumption.

Overcoming the initial challenge of managing your energy more efficiently

Overcoming the initial challenge of managing your energy more efficiently

The initial challenge of energy efficiency

A general observation we have noticed from our customer cases is this – companies are unaware of where they waste energy. And when you are unaware, it is difficult to know where the saving potentials are.

Our experience is that most companies do not know what their idle energy consumption is. And if this knowledge is unclear, it is challenging to actually achieve a reduction in your annual energy consumption and, subsequently, save a large amount of money.

 

The other energy efficiency challenge

Is that there is not enough energy experts available to guide and help companies reduce their baseload consumption, through a solid data collection, based on real-time monitoring of their energy usage.

And based on these data, the energy experts available may not provide hands-on and convenient solutions. Solutions so practical, in fact, that they can even be automated. In other words, the energy saving measures needed for your company can be be made automatic. Specifically programmed to fit the daily workflow of your company.

How energy efficiency helps stabilize the grid

How energy efficiency helps stabilize the grid

Energy projections are saying that

Global electricity demand is, currently, growing by 2.7% annually. And projections are saying that by 2050, even with the growth in renewable energy, we will still be relying heavily on fossil fuels. There is no reduction in sight, actually.

The good news, however, is that energy efficiency can help us make the transition towards renewable energy cheaper. And it can help us reduce our overall energy usage.

The obstacle energy efficiency is this

One problem is, however, that there are not energy experts to help the broader populations and companies to reduce their energy. You do not know where you waste your energy. And you do not know what to do, to actually reduce your energy.

And that is because, energy efficiency requires expert knowledge, in order to implement processes and automations.

We want to help solve this problem with ShowMe.

 

This is our solution

We want to enable and put this into an expert system. An expert system, using AI, to detect where energy is wasted,  and where there is saving potential. Moreover, we want to develop an AI that can automate and generate automations, to save actual energy.

The green transition, towards more renewable energy, and towards electrication of industrial processes, and other demand, means that the grid will be fluctiating more and more. That is because, sometimes the wind blows and sometimes it does not.

We need a way to stabilize the grid and ShowMe can do this. With ShowMe, we can swith demand on or off, at points where you either need more or less energy, to keep the grid in balance. Because a grid in balance is a stable grid.

 

We are your preferred energy experts because

3 reasons why automating appliances is energy efficient and cost effective

3 reasons why automating appliances is energy efficient and cost effective

Making an IoT coffee machine taught us these things about energy efficiency

What can a mix between IoT and coffee teach us about energy optimization? Quite a few things, it turns out.

The coffee pot is, easily, one of the most frequently visited places at our office. That is because one, obviously, need caffeinated fuel, in order to keep physical products stably connected to the internet.

Joking aside.

It is no secret that our Seluxit team drinks more coffee than tea. And since this is the case, why not make a smart coffee machine. Meaning, making it into an intelligent appliance which lets all our coffee lovers know about the coffee situation – in real-time, all the time, everyday.

Being experts in IoT, this is exactly what we did to our coffee machine. We hooked it up to the internet. And it taught us these things about energy efficiency.

1. Automating your coffee saves time and lets you refill successfully

Contrary to before, our coffee drinkers are now able to more accurately time, when to get up from their desks and successfully refill their mugs with fresh doses of Joe. The reason why is because, we automated the coffee machine, after we connected it to the internet.

Through heat sensors, cameras and coding, the containment in the coffee pot is now being captured every second. This data is then being sent to our internal communication channel. And this is how everyone knows how many cups are left in the pot and whether it is still hot. In other words, the waiting time for fresh coffee has been reduced.

Over time, this information amounts to a solid fundation of data, which we use to optimize our energy consumption and coffee expenses. This means, that we are able to save money on both our physical and idle energy consumption.

 

2. Automating lets you know, when maintenance is needed

Moreover, coding our appliance to convey specific information lets us know the exact condition of the machine. For instance, we automated our coffee machine letting it communicate, when it needs decalcification.

The reason why this is brilliant is because predictive maintenance, in the long run, is much more energy efficient. In other words, by maintaining your appliance in a predictive way, ensures that it works smoothly by using the sufficient amount of energy it needs.

By not maintaining the appliance, you will, eventually, cause it to overstrain its performance. Subsequently, overstraining performance can cause you to consume more energy than necessary, when using your appliance.

And this brings us to our last learning.

 

3. Automating keeps your appliance live longer

A positive side-effect of automating your daily devices is its prolonged lifespan.

Typically, when appliances are no longer working, the default behavior is to throw them out. However, by predictively maintaining your appliances, you will be able to use them for much longer than you otherwise would.

Not only does this make sense for you energy consumption but it also makes sense economically. And with the incremental increase in energy prices, who would not want to save a bit of money.

Last minute reflection

This project was executed from a very hands-on and practical standpoint, on a minor machine which we happen to use daily at our office.

And because of our experience in IoT and energy efficiency, it took very little time to connect the device to the internet and apply the proper automations.

Imagine if the machine was larger. Or if there were more at once.

Do you have larger machines which can benefit from automations and predictive maintenance, too?

We have the expertise to optimize your machine performance and energy usage, through IoT and automations.
