A company that specialises in eliminating wasted energy has launched a new AI-powered product it claims will transform energy management in the built environment sectors.
Measurable.energy has unveiled its new fused spurs, which make use of machine learning (AI) algorithms to monitor electricity usage and ensure that energy is consumed efficiently.
The company’s focus is on the small scale – the electrical components and devices filling offices and workplaces that allow businesses to function – but which nevertheless have a cumulative impact on energy consumption and carbon emissions.
According to Measurable.energy the electricity used by devices like monitors, AV equipment, printers, counter-top water taps, and more can typically account for 40% of total electricity use in most commercial buildings.
Up to half of this is wasted, the company adds; resulting from devices being left on or in standby.
That’s where it’s new fused spurs come into play, the company says. They are engineered to address the challenge of managing the more power-hungry devices, which require fused connection units and often are in hard-to-reach places.
By applying machine learning, Measurable.energy claims its technology identifies devices plugged in, and continually measures their usage; automatically turning them on and off to eliminate wasted energy.
Obviously, by reducing the amount of electricity used – at least 20%, the company claims – then those savings translate into lower bills – and reduced carbon emissions.
Dan Williams, chief executive and co-founder of Measurable.energy, said: “I, the team, and our customers could not be more excited about the launch of our fused spurs. This means that our customers can automatically tackle even more of their energy use and CO2 emissions.
“It’s a brilliant feeling to know that right now Measurable.energy are making a measurable, positive difference to emissions and energy bills, and it will only grow bigger.”
