What types of environmental data can you collect?
The short answer: we collect environment data for energy and water consumption, and waste and recycling pick-up.
The longer answer goes like:
- Electricity consumption
- District heating and cooling consumption
- Gas consumption
- Heat pump energy production
- Solar panel (net/gross) production
- Water (hot/cold)
- Waste and recycling*
- Climate sensors (temperature/humidity)
- Air quality sensors (CO2/TVOC)
* Selected markets only. Regulations on what needs to be measured vary.
From what sources can you collect data?
In general, any internet-connected source where there is data.
Utility main meters
- Utility bills
- Customer pages
- File transfers (CSV, Excel, XML, and market-specific energy data formats)
- National energy data hubs
- Smart meters/metering gateways
- SCADA/BAC-systems (local installations and cloud-based)
- Cloud-based energy management systems
- Solar panel inverters and cloud platforms
- Charging station suppliers
Meters which yet haven’t been connected can be read manually using our app Metry Readings.
What level of detail do you support?
Generally speaking, any limitations to what is possible is not within our platform, but due to market regulations on what is published, or what supported by the systems that integrate to us.
That being said, at the moment we do not calculate consumption values on a higher granularity than per hour.
We offer several methods of collecting data that are suitable for different use cases. We’d love to discuss a solution that suits your needs in a demo session!
How quickly is our data collected?
The delay between the end of a measured period (e.g. a month/day/hour) and when the data is available in Metry mainly depends on when the data is published in the data source (e.g. when your utility bill is generated, how often data hubs push their values, et cetera). We process incoming data continuously.
These are average times for data being available in Metry.
- Monthly data: within one day after being available in the data source
- Daily data: the following day
- Hourly data from utilities: all values for a day are available the following day
- Hourly values from other sources: within one hour from being recorded, typically much faster
Which utility providers can you collect from?
If your provider provides you electricity, heating, cooling, gas, water, or waste/recycling services – and charges you for this – then we can collect data from them.
We have developed different tools for automating collection and extraction of environmental data for more than 10 years. This makes us confident enough to say that no source of data is too complex for us.
What do I need to provide to automate data collection?
In general, this kind of information/actions are required from your end:
- Automated utility bill collection: A connection to your ERP system
- Automated monthly utility data: Customer credentials (such as customer number and PIN code) or customer account logins for all your providers
- Automated granular utility data: Signed power of attorney from a signatory allowed to make energy-related decisions.
- Automated electricity data from hubs: In general, each metering point need to be approved for sync with Metry by logging into the hub as the utility customer.
- Technical systems in buildings: Login credentials, or configuration of data exports
We will discuss a solution that matches your data needs and available information before we get started.
What kinds of systems in buildings can I connect to Metry?
If your system measures energy, water consumption, temperatures, or air quality, and it has an interface for accessing it remotely, we can automate data collection from it.
In general there are two types of hardware that we connect:
- Data loggers and metering gateways: These devices are made specifically from exporting data and are commonly used for collecting granular electricity use and billing of tenants. As they export data, setup is typically easy and requires no network security changes.
- Building automation and control systems: These devices control production of heating, cooling, and ventilation. Many such devices can also connect arbitrary meters and sensors. Some of these devices may require your network administrator to configure the security policies to allow our collection robots to connect to them.
We’re happy to talk more about your specific need and answer questions in a session with one of our data collection experts.
Why should I use a separate system for collecting and structuring my data?
In the days when energy data collection was done manually, one common system was often used to manage all aspects of property management. This lead to trade-offs between teams, as the systems had different strengths and weaknesses in different areas.
As smart meter data became increasingly available, new systems arose and enabled new ways of analysing consumption patterns. Since they were partially competing with the property management systems, they needed to set up their data connections separately, causing double work and extra costs.
The case for using energy and environmental data in multiple services is even more true in this day and age. Data that is used for billing tenants needs to connect both to finance systems and tenant service portals and apps. Data from HVAC systems is used both for optimisations in energy management tools and for sustainability reporting. Solar panel electricity production might need to connect both with financial systems for tax reasons, energy management for follow-up, and sustainability platforms for reporting. The list goes on and on.
As a neutral data collector, we don’t compete with the offerings of the systems we connect to. That makes us unique in our ability to deliver automated data collection to almost any system. Set up once, utilize wherever, forever!
What countries do you collect utility data in?
We collect data all over Europe. Our strongest coverage is within the Nordics and the UK.
You can find the extensive list of utilities we already have connected here. More are added upon request every week.
What types of systems can we use our data in?
With your data collected in Metry, you can connect it to a plethora of energy and sustainability management systems, as well as systems for invoicing tenants. Note that these systems often require their own subscriptions, and are not included in your Metry subscription.
Metry is made to integrate with others. If you use a system that currently does not connect with us we’ll make arrangements to sort it out in the best way possible.
In what ways can we use your API?
An API provides a way for two systems to communicate with each other, so only imagination limits what is possible.
Here are some examples of how our API has been used by customers:
- Present daily energy production from the school’s solar panels to elementary school pupils to stimulate sustainability awareness
- Visualise energy consumption and temperature sensor data in digital twins (interactive 3d models of buildings) for remote fault tracing
- Create a custom energy management solution using Microsoft PowerBI
