UK smart meter start-up secures funding


Energy management and smart metering specialist PRI has developed a range of products to improve carbon reduction as part of a commitment to corporate social responsibility. The flagship product is Carbon View, a new system for carbon monitoring; displaying instant and accurate energy consumption data.

Using smart electric, gas and water meters, Carbon View communicates wirelessly over a computer network to retrieve data from which CO2 emissions are calculated. The data is displayed as an easy-to-interpret set of dials that move in real time with actual consumption, showing green, orange and red parameters that are set for a particular building.

Providing accurate information displayed in a visually appealing way for staff and customers to see and engage, the product’s design can be tailored to brand and corporate message.

Carbon View has been successfully installed at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers in London U.K., which reported enhanced engagement and awareness from staff and visitors.
