GridPoint and Electracom Projects Form Channel Partnership in the United Kingdom

GridPoint, an innovator in comprehensive, data-driven energy management systems (EMS) that enable customers to optimize energy savings, facility efficiency and sustainability agendas, is pleased to announce Electracom Projects, a building management systems (BMS) specialist based in the United Kingdom, as an international extension of GridPoint’s channel partner program. Electracom’s installation and BMS combined with GridPoint’s submetering and monitoring technology allows UK enterprises to enhance energy conscious behaviour through innovative sensoring, cloud-based big data analytics and intelligent control.

New regulations and rising energy costs prompt adoption of submetering technology

Electracom and GridPoint’s strategic partnership opens new opportunities for both companies to provide effective energy and sustainability management for enterprises as the United Kingdom prepares for the implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive in 2015, which will require a programme of regular energy audits.

“With costs of energy steadily rising in the United Kingdom and the impending changes in government regulations within the energy industry fast approaching, Electracom surveyed the market and saw a need to employ next-generation energy management solutions to help businesses gain control through submetering, monitoring and cloud-based big data analytics,” says director Kerry Overman of Electracom. “GridPoint’s vision is to deliver Internet of Things technology specific to energy; transforming how commercial, government and educational enterprises reduce energy expenses and carbon emissions, which they have successfully proven with their impressive customer base.”

Energy management solutions bring data-driven visibility to usage

Todd M. Raba, president and CEO of GridPoint, says of the partnership, “GridPoint is excited to further our business in the United Kingdom with the assistance of Electracom. Their extensive energy industry experience and installation skills position us to assist UK enterprises as they adapt to new energy regulations and manage escalating energy prices.”

The GridPoint solution submeters individual energy-consuming assets and monitors environmental conditions, sends the data to a cloud-based platform and provides real-time visibility, big data analytic capabilities and dynamic control over energy usage, carbon emissions and critical facility performance. Electracom’s expertise in BMS, automatic controls and electrical installation helps bring these innovative solutions to United Kingdom businesses and government agencies aiming to save money, reduce carbon, enhance customer comfort and achieve sustainability goals.

GridPoint’s savings demonstrated in North American retailers

GridPoint solutions have delivered proven results through the combination of data-driven, real-time, asset-level submetering with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) analytics. With GridPoint’s submetering devices in place, a big box retailer identified 249 issues across 1,100 stores, including unnecessary energy expenses, malfunctioning HVAC and lighting systems and freezer and cooler inventory losses. Additionally, a convenience store operator saves 22% annually per site in energy and capital expenses by monitoring HVAC performance and detecting malfunctions before damaging outages occur.
