Our Evaluation Model

Predefined objective evaluation

Each of the six cornerstones of our Electricity Smart evaluation is supported by a rigorous site-by-site assessment.

To provide a snapshot of our approach (without giving all our secrets away!), our Demand Response and Frequency Response evaluations each have seven elements and over 150 evaluation criteria.

Our energy intelligence evaluation has eight elements and over 180 evaluation criteria and our Storage, Generation and Electric Vehicle Charging evaluations each have six elements and over 130 evaluation criteria.

Informed Decision Making

Weighted scores are cleverly applied to each of the evaluation criteria to produce a unique fingerprint for each of our customer sites.

This fingerprint then provides each business with a tailored report upon which they can make an informed decision about their selected products
