Energy management via machine learning
(DEMONSTRATION, Efficiency, Energy)

Tell me about the technology.

PlotWatt is a cloud-based disaggregation software company that utilizes proprietary algorithms to translate smart meter data into actionable insights for end customers. Currently working in the Quick Service Restaurant market, PlotWatt helps to drive operational efficiencies and saves customers an average of 10% per month on electricity bills. Here’s how it works: 1) PlotWatt installs an energy monitor in each location, feeding real-time data back to PlotWatt; 2) they use powerful algorithms to analyze the data and sends decision makers actionable tips for how to maximize energy savings; and 3) they provide value by monitoring HVAC systems, walk-in coolers and freezers, and other critical equipment, alerting customers if equipment is not functioning properly.

What should I know about their EEx Demonstration Project?

PlotWatt will deploy their energy efficiency solution at Quick Service Restaurants and casual restaurant chains throughout Hawaii and the greater Asia-Pacific region. The project is expected to reduce store-level energy consumption by at least 10%.

Where are they based?
