Raleigh, N.C., April 4, 2012 — Sensus, a provider of smart grid infrastructure technologies for utilities, agreed with Navetas Energy Management to deliver the U.K.-based company's energy management software.

The software allows consumers to accurately and intelligently monitor the electricity consumption of discrete devices on their premise.

Utilities deploying the licensed wireless Sensus FlexNet advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system will be able to leverage the Navetas software as an optional service that provides residential and commercial customers with an online portal or mobile app showing precise electricity consumption data from various appliances.

The system gives consumers access to detailed information about daily usage patterns and the cost associated with each device, allowing them to manage consumption and save money.

 Utilities can offer the non-intrusive load monitoring technology as an added service to facilitate broader customer engagement, producing an online dashboard with comprehensive energy profile data so that the consumer can make informed decisions on their monthly utility spend.

Navetas was founded in 2008 to productize the load disaggregating concept from the University of Oxford that can uniquely monitor, from a single point, how much energy is being used by different appliances in the home. Navetas has successfully launched the technology in the U.K. and across Europe.
