Cambridge, U.K. — (METERING.COM) — October 25, 2012 – Elecom SA has been appointed by Green Energy Options to distribute the company’s home energy management systems within Belgium.

These include a range of in-home displays (IHDs) which are easy for consumers to install, provide real time information on energy usage, and put them in control of their energy consumption.

A recent report by VaasaETT indicates that by using such systems, household electricity consumption in Belgium could be reduced by up to 9 percent.

Belgians pay more for their electricity than many other European nations which makes any type of energy efficiency extremely valuable. And with the average Belgian household utility bill increasing year on year, a 9 percent saving could make a huge difference to the household budget each month.

Elecom will be offering three of GEO’s HEMS, which incorporate in-home energy displays, online energy services and accessories such as smart plugs and temperature sensors – the Ensemble HEMS, Solo PV in-home display, and Solo in-home display.

“Given the rising costs of energy, Belgian consumers can really benefit from access to real time energy information,” said Patrick Caiger-Smith, chief executive officer of GEO.
