The companies will collaborate to supply IoT hardware, software, and connectivity that homeowners and property managers can use to monitor energy use.

UK energy consulting firm Utilitywise has announced its collaboration with Dell and Vodafone to create an IoT-powered utility management platform.

The platform will allow businesses use the IoT to:

  • Monitor energy usage of equipment including HVAC and lighting systems
  • Manage multiple buildings and properties
  • Quickly identify waste and issues that cost money and harm the environment

The ground-breaking technology gives building managers, property managers, and business owners insight into how their companies and buildings use energy. These insights will inform decision-making about effective ways to reduce utility bills and energy consumption.

Utilitywise’s intelligent building controls solution offers customers a potential for significant savings. Both Vodafone and Utilitywise will market the product.

Stefano Gastaut, Vodafone’s IoT Director says, “This is a great example of how IoT is being used to disrupt and innovate. IoT is helping to create smarter buildings and to change the level of control and insight companies can get about their energy performance, that unlocks new savings and potentially lowers their carbon footprint.”

“With this unique combination we have the ability to reduce energy consumption bills for thousands of UK businesses by combining Dell EMC’s advanced infrastructure solutions – which are ideal for connecting systems like legacy building management commonly referred to as Operations Technology – to state of the art connectivity from Vodafone and advanced data ingestion and analytics from Utilitywise,” Dermot O’Connell, Dell’s EMC OEM Solutions VP says.
