Giampiero added: "Having the right energy management strategy in place can reduce peak power consumption and deliver savings on electricity bills of up to 20 percent, depending on local tariffs. An additional 10 percent savings are possible through efficiency improvement actions, enabled monitoring of energy demands and costs."The solution is also scalable, to date we have linked to the cloud via our intelligent circuit breakers, but this could also be done in smaller buildings, including homes, by linking to the cloud from a miniature circuit breaker, for instance. This system can support remote monitoring and energy management in any electrical system."
