measurable.energy automatically identifies and eliminates wasted energy from buildings, significantly reducing CO2 emissions and electricity bills. We do this by targeting plug sockets and all the devices that are plugged in. Plug sockets account for as much as 40% of a total building's energy use and half is completely wasted energy from devices left on. The m.e Platform uses secure machine learning enabled, hardware and software to automatically monitor in real-time and control sockets remotely. Using Machine Learning we can detect what devices are plugged in, and whether they are on/off or on standby. Combining this information with basic occupancy allows the Platform to identify wasted energy and turn those sockets off.
The system can also detect power anomalies, unusual activity and prevent key devices from drawing power. This provides a powerful preventative maintenance platform for protecting devices and electrical infrastructure. The Platform can also integrate into the National Gird’s Demand Side Response functionality. This allows users to take payments for turning devices on/off during periods of low/peak electricity demand periods. The impact indicator lights on each socket provide a live visualisation of the carbon intensity of the energy being currently generated on the grid. When the light is green the mix on the grid is more renewable, when the light is red the mix is more fossil fuel dependant. This allows users to make a choice. Do I need to charge my device right now or can I wait until the carbon intensity is lower?
