Welcome to Wattics Newsletter

Wattics is an Irish company that has developed patented technology to revolutionise the way organisations and energy professionals manage energy consumption, identify energy wastage, engage and implement energy saving actions.

A word from our CEO

Welcome to the April Newsletter, we hope you had a relaxing break over the Easter weekend.

We recently shared results from our Market Research through a series of posts on our LinkedIn page. We found out the major barriers to the successful completion of Energy Saving Projects as well as the best approaches when dealing with ESCo clients. For a complete review, please see further down in the newsletter and please follow our LinkedIn page for regular updates.

Keep an eye out for our new metering page, where we list all the meters we support. If you have a meter and would like us to support it, please email us.

I hope you enjoy the April edition of the Wattics monthly Newsletter.

Energy Show

On the 25 and 26 March we exhibited at The Energy Show that was held in the RDS in Dublin. We demonstrated our newly launched M&V tool to all visitors and again received tremendous feedback.

We always love attending these trade shows as we get to meet and network with our peers in the Energy Industry. There are so many great new and exciting technologies that are being created. The Energy Industry is certainly an exciting and innovative sector that we are delighted to be a part of.

Our Partnership Programme and M&V tool have been received extremely well in the market, with our partner Blackbourne saying the following: “Wattics without question stands out above the rest of energy analytics platforms both in terms of the system capabilities and service provided by the Wattics team.
As an energy contractor we now have the capability of assisting our clients with project selection using real data, energy analysis, action reporting and most of all energy project performance measurements using the IPMVP standards. This has given us the competitive advantage with our clients and the ability to work in an open book manner with them. Wattics has provided unlimited sales and technical support and our clients have been delighted with our service offering. I would highly recommend Wattics as a company and a system to any end user, energy consultant or contractor.”

Market Research

You spoke and we listened…

If you have been following us on LinkedIn you would have seen us post many different and informative stats from the Market Research we conducted in January of this year, prior to the ESCo Europe event.

We found the results of the market research of vital importance and we have aligned all of our internal processes to these results, this way we can offer our partners and our clients the best solutions and services in the market today.

We saw that in spite of the benefits, the majority of ESCos are still using traditional offline Energy Management Solutions. Another finding was, the motivation for ESCo clients to move to a Cloud-based Energy Management system was easier project management and to save time. The top 2 types of Energy Analytics that ESCos are looking for are Automated Reporting and M&V project reporting.

With our Market Survey, we identified 3 major barriers that affect Energy Saving Projects and these were, Customer Engagement, Larger Capex and Unclear Return On Investment. Regarding these barriers we found that the best way to engage with ESCo clients was a professional and structured approach, sharing of the savings as well as a Return on Investment within a year.

From our survey, we found that the expected transition time that ESCo’s will adopt Cloud-based Energy Management systems is an estimated 3 years. We are of the opinion that Cloud-based Active Energy Management is key to maintain long lasting client relationships and repetitive business.

ESCos using cloud-based Energy Management today will lead the market of tomorrow.
