Energy Metering

To accurately determine how much energy various systems, devices, and buildings use, energy metering measures and monitors energy use in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. This information is necessary to understand energy patterns, use energy effectively, and put energy efficiency measures in place.


Energy Metering Benefits

By collecting useful information through energy meters, we can help cut costs, make energy use more efficient, and protect the environment.

Cost Optimisation
Accurate energy meters allow for effective tracking, which lets you make smart actions to reduce your building's energy use and costs.

Environmental Sustainability
Help make the world more sustainable by keeping a watchful eye on your building's carbon footprint and minimizing it by using energy more efficiently.

Data Driven Decisions
With real-time data insights, you can make smart choices about how to use energy most efficiently to improve building performance.

Compliance & Reporting
Comprehensive energy metering data makes it easy to meet regulatory standards and makes compliance and reporting processes easier.


Energy Metering features


Smart Meter Integration

Easily connect smart meters to keep an eye on and record how much energy is being used in real time.

Sub Metering

With sub-metering, you can break down energy use by specific areas or systems, giving you detailed information that you can use to make specific changes.

Cost Allocation

Accurately distribute energy costs among different areas or tenants, encouraging transparency and parity.

Predictive Analytics

With predictive analytics, you can determine how much energy will be required in the future, which lets you take proactive steps to save energy.

How Energy Metering Works

Energy Metering is the process of measuring and keeping updated on how much energy a building or facility uses. It is an important part of smart building technology that makes it possible to accurately track, analyze, and improve energy use.


Installing smart meters throughout the building is the first step in energy metering. Smart meters can track how much power, gas, water, or other energy sources are used.

Data Collection

Smart meters constantly gather real-time information about how much energy is being used and send it directly to a central system or a platform in the cloud.

Data Analysis

  • The data that is sent is gathered in a central hub or database. Advanced analytics programs then process the data, which gives us information about how people use energy.

Granular Insights

At times, sub-meters are installed to measure how much energy is used in particular places or by certain systems. Sub-metering gives very specific information about how much energy is used by zone or individual equipment.

Cost Allocation

With energy meters, it is easier to get accurate estimates of how much energy costs. In buildings or facilities with multiple tenants, these estimates can be given to the correct offices or tenants.

Monitoring & Alerts

Dashboards or apps that are easy to use let users keep an eye on real-time energy use. The system sends messages for any unexpected changes or spikes in energy use, so problems can be quickly identified and fixed.

Predictive Analytics

Predictive analytics tools look at old data to find patterns and trends. They are able to predict how much energy will be needed in the future, so steps can be taken ahead of time to save energy.


By working out a building's carbon footprint, energy meters help protect the environment. The information they collect can then be used to adopt strategies that use less energy and have a smaller impact on the environment.
