IBM installed a SmartPower solution as part of the IBM Research's Living Energy Lab in Damastown to try and understand 'real world' variable electricity pricing, which has proved successful. In addition to this, SmartPower passed us on years of valuable historical actual market readings which has been fed back into the research division.
SmartPower assisted us in our electricity export contract
negotiations. In the 6 months since the SmartPower installation there has been an
approximate additional €22,000 income for the group over and above
running the CHP based on ´ time-of-day ´ settings. SmartPower also manage the
site carbon tax resulting from
CHP gas consumption.
