Scope 3 emissions propel tenants into the building data big picture

Scope 3 emissions propel tenants into the building data big picture

Having happier, more engaged tenants is a great start to ensuring their ongoing participation in a building’s sustainability journey. It’s no surprise, therefore, that providing tenants with energy and carbon management solution systems that they can use themselves, and benefit from in their own right, can be a strong positive influence.

What does household electrification look like in reality?

What does household electrification look like in reality?

This is the brave new world of customer energy resources (CER), and one way or another we can all play in the space: increasing energy efficiency, choosing optimal tariffs, generating solar from rooftops, providing flexible demand, adding battery storage, and electrifying everything, our cars included. So what does this look like for real Australian homes, right now?

We need real-time action on the grid edge instead of more talk-fests

We need real-time action on the grid edge instead of more talk-fests

The grid edge needs real technological change, writes Wattwatchers CEO Gavin Dietz. It needs to be future-proofed. It needs to suit all stakeholders and it needs to start now, because this is a long journey, and we’re still stuck behind the starting line.

Energy data communities are on the rise from the city to the outback

Energy data communities are on the rise from the city to the outback

Wattwatchers is supporting growing community-level interest in smart energy monitoring and data. This trend is attributed to multiple drivers: the clean energy transition, Net Zero decarbonisation and the electrification of everything, with data being used at the local community level as well as for individual consumers.

Edge of the grid gets what it needs…

Edge of the grid gets what it needs…

The value of consumer energy resources (CER) to Australia’s clean energy transition keeps growing. Electricity consumers can be more energy efficient, they can be flexible when they use electricity for major loads, they can store electricity in batteries, and they can double down on electrifying everything. Wattwatchers is releasing our next-generation Auditor 6MW-CER to make all of this easier at the edge of the grid.

Net Zero decarbonisation, sustainability rankings, renewables, demand management and electrification all make digitalisation key to tracking electricity. The new Wattwatchers MyEnergy Plus Sustainability Dashboard 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.

MyEnergy Flow, the latest major update for Wattwatchers’ mobile app, is a new way of interacting with the energy flowing through your home. Imagine having a ‘conversation’ with your energy data. A kind of messaging app where you receive and respond to notifications, like you do in Facebook or LinkedIn, but for energy.

High-resolution carbon accounting: From energy efficiency to carbon efficiency

High-resolution carbon accounting: From energy efficiency to carbon efficiency

Wattwatchers presents the idea of carbon efficiency within the context of high-resolution carbon accounting. It investigates the potential to reduce carbon emissions by using electricity with a lower emissions intensity through a time-shifting simulation on data from close to 500 households.

We’re in CSIRO-led energy flexibility project backed by NSW grant

Wattwatchers is one of several industry partners joining the $11 million CSIRO-led NSW Digital Infrastructure for Energy Flexibility (NSW DIEF) pilot project. It’s supported by $3.75 million in Net Zero Plan Stage 1: 2020-2030 grant funding from the NSW Government.

Auditor 6M+3SW: Boring name, riveting tech

Auditor 6M+3SW: Boring name, riveting tech

One of the less well-known products in the Wattwatchers solution suite, the Auditor 6M+3SW, offers circuit-level monitoring and control in real-time through the cloud. While we know the product name is not the most exciting bit of nomenclature, it’s what it does that counts most – as load control and load shifting in homes and businesses become more and more important to the energy transition and electrification.

Make customer and community electricity data safe and shareable

Make customer and community electricity data safe and shareable

Wattwatchers is highly focused on what a secure marketplace for ethically-sourced real-time energy data will look like. Our Chief Innovation Officer Grace Young’s recent presentation at the Energy Next industry event (Sydney, 19 July 2023) explored the challenges of striking a balance between open + proprietary, industry + customer, and privacy.

Electrification powers up energy data requirements for strata

Electrification powers up energy data requirements for strata

With nearly 350,000 residential strata buildings around Australia, housing an estimated 6 million people, it’s not surprising that the ‘electrification of everything’ trend is catching the attention of tenants and body corporates alike. Wattwatchers can help!
