For immediate release.
Quantifying the energy transition with The Internet of Things
23th January 2020.
Dublin, Ireland – Energy sustainability starts at home and with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland’s Deep Retrofit Programme the process to upgrade our housing stock has begun. Central to this programme has been the quantification of the benefits and the impacts of the adoption of new renewable sources of energy and systems in the residential community. To address the challenge faced by Energy Agencies, Danalto deployed its IoT (Internet-of-Things) technologies and platform to find the right-sized economical solution for such an ambitious programme. Using the latest cloud hosted IoT orchestration technologies, Danalto (a Dublin based technology company) has employed its Cardinal platform to provide Tipperary Energy Agency, and others, with a precise means of measuring, monitoring and analysing the benefits of the DRP programme, and will be deployed by six agencies across 150 homes by late Spring 2020.
With the residential sector accounting for 22.1% energy demand in Ireland (2017) and over 1 million homes with poor insulation or inefficient heating systems, there is much work to be done. Indeed in the UK, the task is even more enormous, with up to 27 million residential retrofits being required. Danalto and our partners are ready to enable and manage this necessary transition.
Commenting on the announcement, Albert Baker, COO, danalto, said “ ”the journey to become even greener as a nation has truly started and we see danalto helping to provide the intelligence and insights to the Agencies and government Authority to inform and direct policies and incentives to guide this transition. We are excited to work with thought leaders in the renewable energy space, such as Tipperary Energy Agency to help deliver our energy future”.
Paul Kenny, CEO, Tipperary Energy Agency, commented; “ Central to the delivery of high quality retrofits is confidence, confidence in the technology, particularly heat pumps, but also in the renovation as a whole. Our market leading Superhomes Deep retrofit methodology is underpinned by monitoring and analysis from Danalto proving the energy savings claimed are delivered. Danalto’s cardinal platform gave us the accuracy, reliability and user interface to deliver this confidence to all our customers. “
Danalto is a leading provider of next generation IoT service creation and operation technologies for massive scale low energy IoT applications. Our mission is to make IoT service and technology adoption and deployment easy for enterprises everywhere.
