Homegrown Australian technology companies Wattwatchers and Reekoh are collaborating to break new ground for smart energy and asset management in the built environment.
An early use case for the new partnership, which emphasises fast deployment of customer solutions, will see real-time electricity data from Wattwatchers being integrated with weather and energy market data sets.
This will help business customers to take control of their energy use and automate decision-making for better performance through reducing energy wastage and coordinating cost-effective time-of-use to avoid or minimise peak demand charges.
Digital energy technology company Wattwatchers, which specialises in monitoring and control of electrical circuits in real-time through the cloud, is looking to Reekoh to help boost its expansion into the commercial and industrial space.
Real-time energy data, meanwhile, is a strategic addition to Reekoh’s extensive solutions store. As an integration platform provider, Reekoh supports enterprises to unite new technologies such as IoT, AI and machine learning with their existing data systems, thus rapidly enabling business solutions that can adapt to ongoing technology evolution.
Reekoh already has added Wattwatchers to its plugin architecture, making its IoT-for-energy devices readily accessible via Reekoh’s ever-expanding library of enterprise platforms, tools and services.
Reekoh CEO Dale Rankine said that the benefits of an integrated approach to IoT in the energy sector would bring agility and speed to deployment, and long-term enterprise solution scale.
‘Using the Reekoh plugin framework and platform architecture, Wattwatchers are able to quickly go after customer opportunities where they can provide immediate value beyond their market-leading core solutions, and then build on those solutions for long-term scale,’ said Rankine.
‘Wattwatchers have a deep understanding of their customers’ immediate and future needs, and it’s been fantastic to be able to bring together our solutions to enable offerings that they already know will make a huge impact to them.’
Wattwatchers CEO Gavin Dietz said that the new partnership with Reekoh would help to accelerate IoT for energy, paving the way for a step change in building management that would be smarter, faster and more cost-effective.
‘Reekoh’s rapid integration capabilities open a door to easy-to-access IoT, artificial intelligence and machine learning which can leverage the highly-granular, real-time energy monitoring and control functionality provided by Wattwatchers,’ said Dietz.
‘By integrating Wattwatchers data with weather information and market data from the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), the combination with Reekoh will help business consumers of electricity to get better financial and operational outcomes.
‘A use case example is leveraging Reekoh’s predictive capability to control peak loads and participate in orchestrated load-shedding (demand response) programs, with opportunities for both automated and behavioural approaches; or automatically scheduling loads to reduce the most common form of energy wastage, unnecessary after-hours energy usage.’
Reekoh and Wattwatchers also will work together to migrate their collective solutions towards sophisticated asset management services for utility businesses across the energy, water and telecommunications sectors.
