Abstract [en]

Based on the impressions given by information gathered within the frames of this project, there most definitely exists a need and interest for a product that increases the employees’ awareness of their company’s energy usage. Interactive Institute should consider the prerequisites satisfactory and follow through with their project in creating a product that fulfills this need. The chance to create a powerful, yet economically defendable, product is great considering that the product would include features not previously available to the market at an attractive price level.

With limited manpower within the company together with a wish of turning this project into a marketable product, cooperating with Exido/eZE Systems would be the most fruitful solution. Using their Input/Output device and already ‐built communications system gives Interactive Institute the possibility to focus mainly on the Graphical User Interface/Web portal and the technical involvement would only need to cover signal handling from existing meters to the I/O box as well as integrating the Exido software system with the new customer web portal. This cooperation would also grant Interactive Institute an important head start compared to other manufacturers possibly in the beginning of launching similar projects. Thereby the chances of hitting the market with a unique product, before any competition exists, increase significantly.

If involving an external part is not an option due to internal reasons, developing the meter from earlier projects further and replacing the previously used WLAN module with a LAN module (or possibly simply adding LAN capability) would be the second most efficient solution in terms of manpower efficiency and not making the product more expensive than necessary.
