The unique energy usage of consumers in the Nordic region will be at the heart of geo’s presence at CHARGE.
The Icelandic backdrop provides an ideal opportunity for geo to unveil the findings of its recent pilot projects in Finland and Norway. These focused on the use of geo’s Cosy smart thermostat to help consumers better manage the heating in their homes, by not heating when nobody is home and, in part, by taking advantage of ‘Nordpool tariffs’.
As a result, the company will be launching a bespoke designed version of Cosy for the Nordic region which will be on show on the geo stand at the event.
Attention will also be given to highlighting the three vital areas of home energy consumption:understand – making energy usage more visible; control – the solutions that put control back into consumer’s hands so they can make changes; and automate – the benefits of integrated energy management so that metering services, energy storage, heating, appliance controls, renewables and electric vehicles are automated.
The geo team will be on the stand to discuss the changes that have been brought about as a result of the electricity market moving from regulation to competition and the opportunities that this provides for the industry, and for consumers.
These changes and opportunities will also form part of the presentation to be given by Simon Anderson, Chief Strategy Officer at geo, when he speaks at CHARGE Energy Branding.
“The Nordic markets are at a hugely important point in the way that they use energy in the home,” Simon Anderson said. “Electricity is rapidly increasing in price and demand is growing, even as the grid infrastructure struggles to cope. The situation is ripe for new energy sources and new energy solutions that can better manage that demand, and lower costs for consumers. This will be a key focus for us at this important event in the geo calendar.”
