UK energy consulting firm Utilitywise will work with Dell and Vodafone to create an IoT-powered utility management platform. The platform will give businesses the ability to monitor their energy usage using the IoT.
Utilitywise, Vodafone, and Dell will collaborate to supply IoT hardware, software, and connectivity that homeowners and property managers can use to monitor energy use.
The platform will be used to monitor and evaluate the energy usage of equipment like heating and ventilation systems, lighting and more. Companies will be able to manage multiple buildings and properties and be able to instantly pinpoint waste and other problems that can cost money and harm the environment.
Brin Sheridan, Utilitywise corporate division managing director, said, “This is a truly ground-breaking technology that will produce significant savings for businesses. By giving business owners and building managers unprecedented insight into how their businesses are using energy, they can make truly informed decisions about how to reduce their utility bills. Utilitywise’s intelligent building controls solution has the potential to produce huge savings for customers, freeing up cash to be invested elsewhere.”
