Australian energy management software maker Envizi is turning to IoT to get more granular insight of a building’s energy use.
The company, which services about 130 enterprise clients, started in 2004 as a technology platform provider for reading smart meters in South Africa.
It now provides a suite of hosted energy management systems, and has recently invested heavily in extending its measurement capabilities “below the utility meter” to the submeter and equipment levels.
“Some of our new [software] modules perform equipment fault detection, where we’re right down at the equipment level looking for certain operating conditions that would indicate that a piece of equipment is operating outside of scheduled hours, for example,” he said.
