Know more about appliances in the home
Innovative manufacturers are introducing smart chips into consumer appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, freezers and clothes dryers. Cortexo can monitor these smart chips to provide valuable power usage to consumers, energy retailers and transmission companies so that all stakeholders can make better energy usage decisions.
Smart plugs enable consumers to understand their energy consumption while reporting back operational and asset management data to the utility. This two-way flow of information enables consumers to become part of the broader smart energy system and provides the opportunity to offer dynamic pricing, help manage loads and decrease overall energy consumption.
Cortexo helps energy companies take a more active role in demand side management.
This is important because the energy landscape is changing rapidly – technology development is providing creative solutions to the need for cleaner and more efficient energy, and consumers are demanding better ways to meet their energy needs, while lessening the impact on the environment.
Commercially viable options for cheaper, cleaner energy are helping to change the way the world produces energy. New technology means new business models. Cogenerated energy is becoming more complex and more distributed, and information technology is playing a key part in meeting the challenge.
Cortexo builds solutions specifically for this new era. Not the clunky and expensive SCADA solutions of old, but internet-based services with flexible pricing models. Cortexo is part of the movement that is applying technology to a global challenge of providing cleaner, greener energy.
Cortexo enables people throughout the energy supply chain to see and manage key data. To know more.
Greater control over cogeneration
Micro-CHP solutions are at the heart of commercially viable options for cheaper, cleaner energy, and are helping to change the way the world produces energy. These include internal combustion engines, stirling engines, microturbines and fuel cells.
Micro-CHP systems in homes are controlled by heat demand and deliver electricity as a by-product. The micro-CHP unit replaces the gas central heating boiler and provides heat and hot water as well as some of the home's electricity needs. Although each unit produces relatively small amounts of electricity, the significance of micro-CHP lies in the potentially huge numbers of systems which may ultimately be installed in the millions of homes generating power at the point of consumption.
