The challenge

Engie offers its customers a system for real-time insight into their energy consumption. Engie was looking for an energy sensor that can read the consumption of electricity and gas from all types of gas and electricity meters. The major challenge was to support all types of meters, in excess of 1.000 different types ! Other critical system requirements were an easy installation procedure for all consumers and a battery life time of several years.

What we did

This project was characterized as a real Research and Development assignment. Engie assigned us early on in the development process. After analyzing the different types of meters, we explored and validated various solutions with prototypes. We further developed the best concept into a prototype and validated on the basis of a large field test. The prototype was subsequently made suitable for mass production.

The result

Our unique energy sensor enables Engie to provide its customers with a unique service in the energy sector. Thanks to our solution, Engie now has an energy sensor which works with any type of meter at a low cost price and very low energy consumption. Currently, the patent for this sensor is pending.
