  • It’s always good to start with the consumer in mind or with the people within your client organisations. Consciousness about our role as humans to care for our environment and to preserve its future has grown very rapidly. We have reached a tipping point where group initiatives and the inspiration of leaders have let to a fundamental shift in perception and raised a broad willingness to participate to make a difference. Most people are not yet very aware of their daily footprint, including use of water, energy and production of waste, but are interested to learn. Utilies in energy and water can tap into this trend to take ownership at a personal level. It begins with personal insight. By providing insight of energy usage at detailed level, realtime, people will grow more aware of their personal impact that feeds their commitment to change their attitude and save energy. We believe the combination of apps and smart meters are fundamental to fuel this trend.
  • Another driver for Energy Insight with apps and smart meters is capacity.• The demand for energy (electricity and gas) continues to grow, shrinking what is known as the capacity margin - the differencebetween total generation capacity and peak demand• Energy companies will be forced to curtail overuse through the introduction of smart meters.• Consumers will be able to feed unused capacity that they generate for renewable source back into the ‘smart grid’.need to educate and engage customers to pro-actively monitor and adjust usage of recoursesSmart grid and smart meter technologies will play a critical role in managing the environmental impact of utilities byincorporating renewable energy into the grid and by helping consumers cut their energy and water usage through time-of-usebilling and demand-response programs.Legislation currently being rolled out across Europe will require the use of smart meters and it’s this that will make an end-to-end smart infrastructure a reality.In many states in the US smart meter roll out is in full swing.
  • So we have looked at capacity challenges and customer behaviour influences for utility change to more customer engagement. Competition is adding a third element. The opportunity is to play the game of the customer engagement for energy saving best.
  • We talked about the pain points – insight, control. And then to stimulate behavioural change. Resolving these needs careful adoption of experience in human sciences.Improve Customer Insight and Engagement – Better easier billing and energy usage reviewGive customers more control – Increase the granularity of time based usage and let customers optimise for themselves.Time-of-use billing and demand-response programs - are part of the required toolkitGive them incentives – get the pricing right to support the required ‘load shedding’Make it fun – by offering peer comparison even down to households or street level.
  • Role of the mobile app
  • We live in a fascinating time. App behaviour adopted. Now on more devices, like fridge. Zigbee. All connected devices.
  • Apps really are becoming the cornerstone of engagement.Acting as a single integration channel between the phases from discovery untill evaluation of a service and the different communication channels that exist to enage with the customer. In an app many come together..
  • Thank Peter,The Why is clear nowLets make it concreteLets take a look at real apps
  • There is a customizable dashboard that allows users to see at one glance how well you are doingGraphs show you in depth how the history of your consumption stacks up, are you improving?But you can beyond your own history, using the peers module you can compare your usage to others in similar houses and areas.There is even a gamification element where you can try to outsmart your friends and familyand you can plot those results in a list but also on a geographical map.The utiliry can integrate billing information so you have a record of all the energy costs, right in your pocketWe can even integrate the most popular payment solutions so you can pay your bills with a few clicks.Social media is of course availble to share your insights with your friends.We have added an entire database of Energy Advisories and Utilities can add their own tips to it.The App also supports notifications so a utilty has a unique ability to contact the end user.Amazing is’t it?
  • We looked at the disruptive effect that Energy Insight can have on customer behavior,So why would Energy Insight be good for utilities
  • For utilities Apps provide a unique means to engage users, to educate them on better ways how to handle energy loading. As a result peak shaving, power on demand and utility invoked incentives to reduce or equalize the load of the grid are possible.Utility Apps can also inform users, and therewith reduce the load on customer support. Imagine Utilities being able to push notifications on outages and service notifications directly to clients. Informing the customer on the spot, taking away the need to call help lines or search through FAQs. You can also image the inclusion of a chat interface, bringing your end user to a support desk in an efficient way.In the end it is about money. Utilities want to be paid for their services and the sooner the better. Energy Insight can connect to major payment gateways allowing users to pay directly from their device, making sure that there are no hurdles and paperwork between invoicing and actually receiving the cash.
