Granular sub-metering is more important than ever for commercial and industrial building owners and their facilities managers. They have a lot to manage across Net Zero decarbonisation, sustainability rankings, renewables, demand management and electrification. Digitalisation is key to tracking energy, carbon and water. The new Wattwatchers MyEnergy Plus tool for environmental sustainability streamlines Green Star reporting and building code compliance. Net Zero Property Director James Clements and our Sales team are demonstrating the new tool at major property sector events this spring.

SOLUTION PROFILE: Wattwatchers MyEnergy Plus

Prompted by growing demand from building portfolio owners and their facility managers, Wattwatchers Digital Energy has developed a new sustainability reporting tool that we’re calling MyEnergy Plus.

We’re launching MyEnergy Plus progressively over the next few months, including at property industry events and other direct engagement with existing and potential customers.

The addition of MyEnergy Plus to the Wattwatchers solution suite reflects how rapidly digital and data-driven energy solutions are rising on the real estate/property sector agenda, in Australia and globally.

How it works

The graphic below provides an overview of how the Wattwatchers solution ecosystem works in a commercial building example with the addition of MyEnergy Plus.

This next graphic provides a look inside the MyEnergy Plus tool.

Electricity data is an asset

For building owners and facility managers, electricity data is often their most valuable asset for the Net Zero journey. 

But the big question is always: Do you and your team have the flexibility to harness its power?

With flexibility and cost-effectiveness top of mind, MyEnergy Plus has been designed to provide a streamlined path to compliance with the requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC), Section J8/9.

For those who want to do more, MyEnergy Plus also helps to enable sustainability outperformance via NABERS, Green Star, GRESB and other rating and ranking programs.

MyEnergy Plus is fast and easy to deploy, and straightforward and flexible to use.

It enables users to unlock the power of electricity data to accelerate their Net Zero journeys, boost property value and support tenant engagement with a technology that’s fast and easy to deploy.

Smartphone app for tenants

Within the Wattwatchers solution ecosystem, tenants can be supported and engaged with our sister application, the MyEnergy home/tenant/small business mobile app, recently updated to include the insights-driven ‘Flow’ feature.
