An energy advisor can perform an evaluation of the building’s energy consumption and evaluate what kind of actions would be most beneficial, and should be considered implemented to reduce and save energy. An example can be to implement smart control of technical systems like ventilation or cooling and heating systems. The recommendations of actions the energy advisor gives will in the long term reduce energy consumptions. If you are interested in an evaluation of one or several of your buildings, energy consulting is one of the services IOT Solutions can offer.
allmy.energy – for private customers
allmy.energy is a tool created by IoT Solutions to provide a detailed overview of energy consumption and the costs associated with this. Unlike other suppliers, we also show the costs associated with the transmission of the energy. With the help of allmy.energy, you can therefore see in detail what the electricity bill consists of, and you can choose to show the trend of cost, energy, temperature and the connection between these.
From 01.01.2022, there will be a change in how the tariff of the transmission of the energy is to be calculated. We will then see a shift towards pricing linked to power consumption also for households. It can therefore be very useful to study how the energy requirement changes in relation to temperature and time. This can then show when, for example, it is wise to charge the car, or to switch on and off extra heat in the home. If you then manage to even out the consumption for the periods when less electricity is used, you get a more even consumption in total, which in turn can reduce the cost.
It is with allmy.energy also possible to compare year by year, week by week and so on. In this way, you get a full overview of the total cost picture, as well as both consumption and transmission tariff. Using allmy.energy you can simulate what your price will be if you, for example, reduce energy consumption by 5%.
The opportunity to change electricity companies directly from our tool will soon be launched. Allmy.energy will then find the power company that offers the lowest price based on your actual usage pattern.

allmy.energy – for business customers
allmy.enegy is one of the tools IOT Solutions has developed. The tool is both an advanced and intuitive analysis tool for energy analysis. allmy.energy provides an overall overview of power consumption, maximum power, and reactive power, all the way down to the hourly level. Using this, you can identify power peaks and unnecessary energy consumption for your business.
allmy.energy requires no installation, only access to the AMS meters via Elhub. All you must do is enter which meter numbers you want to get information from, and we will arrange the rest. Do you want to save energy, environment, and costs; contact us for a non-binding offer!
The majority of the companies we have looked at so far have, with the help of our allmy.energy, had a basis for implementing energy-saving measures. Everything from simple measures such as that it was identified that the ventilation system was on in the weekends, or more in-depth that extremely powerful energy peaks were identified in the middle of the night. The latter resulted in that by implementing corrective measures, the company achieved a saving of as much as 300,000.
If you have several buildings in your portfolio, you can easily compare the power consumption across them all against, for example, square meter size. This is how you easily get an overview of which buildings should be prioritized first with energy efficiency measures.
Our allmy.energy also has its own database with an updated price overview from the largest grid companies in the country. This gives you as a customer an opportunity to easily see what you can expect in electricity bills in the future, as well as the opportunity to compare how your grid company prices itself against other similar companies in the market.

Energy monitoring system
IOT Solutions has developed an energy monitoring system, where the building manager can monitor and control several buildings from one computer, Ipad or smartphone. With this solution, the system is connected to ventilation systems, district heating, and power consumption. With the energy monitoring system, it is quick and easy to implement actions to reduce energy consumption based on the overview and increased understanding of the buildings. With an increased understanding of the buildings, continuous improvements for operating the buildings can be made.
All the buildings have an overview of imported and exported energy, effect, etc. This is shown in an overview after logging into the system. The overview includes data about the weather, power consumption, district heating, and ventilation systems. If there is a need for control of ventilation systems, manual and scheduled based control can be added. This can contribute to reduced consumption by implementing for example holidays, Sundays, or other days there is not a need for the same consumptions as regular days.
The energy monitoring system from IOT Solutions has already been installed at several customers. The installation is done by connecting directly to smart meters and energy meters for the circuits. The system then provides an accurate overview of the consumption of energy. If there is a need to expand and connect several buildings to the system, there is a simple overview of all the locations at the top level. The buildings are then listed, and it is easy to see the location of the buildings by a map.
The system also provides the possibility to drill down on a more detailed level, both graphically and in tabular view. In the graphical view, the data can be scaled from days and down to minutes.
Examples of other technical systems, functions, and data that could be connected could be light control, alarms, and weather data. If you also have solar cells and batteries installed, the production and battery levels can be monitored. The energy monitoring system is logging all data, which are the foundation for analysis and comparisons between buildings. Based on this information, IOTS Solutions can recommend further actions to reduce power consumption.
Digital smart meter (AMS)
Most houses, buildings, and businesses have now installed the newest digital smart meters. This has resulted in several new possibilities and made it easy to register the power consumption. The new smart meters provide the customers access to more detailed information and more accurate readings and calculations from the meter. It also provides the possibility to check at what time each day the consumption is at its highest.
The new smart meters have a HAN-port available for third party suppliers like IOT Solutions to connect to. This port provides real-time data, which makes it easier to get an overview and control power consumption. With this system, it is easy to identify effect peeks and unnecessary power consumption for your business.
Elhub is a neutral data hub that handles all measuring data provided by the digital smart meters in the Norwegian market. Certified third-party suppliers like IOT Solutions are using Elhub as an analyzing tool. Read more about Elhub here: https://www.iotsolutions.no/nb/elhub/
