When KiWi Power entered the demand response energy market in 2009, we found existing smart metering hardware and supporting applications were not fit for purpose, so we designed our own. Our smart meter, the Power information Pod (PiP), continues to win awards for innovation. And now, our supporting web-based dashboard gives clients unrivalled access to real time electricity consumption data and demand response intelligence.
Our proprietary smart meter is approved by System Operators, such as National Grid UK and is the device designed specifically for use in demand response – ensuring you get a best in class solution. PiP is cloud-enabled and communicates back to our operations centre in London. It has a powerful embedded Linux platform for real time power measurement, monitoring, logging and control. It is pre-configured and designed for easy installation with minimal disruption.
PiP is installed free of charge to our demand response clients. It is used by leading global companies to monitor their energy consumption by asset, providing the transparency required to meet reporting requirements. Benefits include:
Installation of our PiP smart meter gives clients access to the KiWi Power client application or "client app" available on all portable devices. The client app provides real time, minute-by-minute monitoring of on-site energy assets. Through the app interface, clients can access:
We've designed our own powerful demand response platform to efficiently and fully automate demand response event management. Our platform is available to System Operators to licence and manage their own demand response programmes. It is used:
