The hospitals and clinics that we humans go to on a regular basis are not the only healthcare facilities that need a proper energy management plan. A veterinary hospital or veterinary clinic can and should be equally energy efficient! For a real life case study on energy management and energy efficiency in the healthcare sector, discover the success story of Canis Veterinary Hospital, implemented by DEXMA partner Audit Energy.

Following DEXMA’s research and innovation strategy, DEXMA has launched a new R&D project called Eco-bot (Personalised ICT-tools for the Active Engagement of Consumers Towards Sustainable Energy). The aim of project Eco-bot is to build an energy efficiency chatbot that can deliver personalised information on disaggregated energy usage through an intelligent and interactive virtual assistant. The ultimate goal of the project is a larger one, though: to actually nudge human behaviour towards energy efficiency. Through an attractive front-end interface, the resulting chatbot will enable seamless communication in a more natural and interactive way than offered by traditional mobile applications or websites. Read on to learn more about this exciting R&D project at the leading edge of harnessing artificial intelligence for energy efficiency. 

For many energy managers, especially those just starting out, planning and implementing energy efficiency projects can feel like being lost in a never-ending maze. In a tiger-infested jungle. During a lightning storm. Okay, maybe not quite so dramatic - but you get the picture. The lengthycomplex and high-risk nature of energy efficiency projects is what compelled Texas-based energy manager Jeff Julia to help his fellow energy managers out: he decided to write a book about it. And not just your typical dry, boring energy management textbook, either. This award-winning work of fiction explores 6 situations in which any energy manager is bound to find themselves at some point in their career - and how to overcome them like an Alpha Energy Manager. In this exclusive interview with Dexma, hear from Jeff on what makes a winning energy efficiency project, which technologies fit where (including, yes, blockchain for energy), and how to minimise the biggest risk factors. 

The transition to low-cost, highly efficient clean energy technology is being accelerated by an accompanying revolution in innovative business models to deploy that technology. As with other similar industry shifts, the fundamental drivers are sound economics combined with the right business model. You've no doubt heard of Software as a Service (SaaS) and its advantages over on-premise software when it comes to investing in energy management. In this guest post by Angela Ferrante of SparkFund, we'll learn about a lucrative new business model called Lumens as a Service.

Happy New Year! Wait, what's wrong? Not so happy? In trouble trying to choose the right energy management software for your project? Oh no!

We can just picture the scene: your desk is piled high with brochures, quotes and provider offers… and the clock is ticking. Yours is the classic energy manager dilemma: the longer you put off your decision, the fewer energy savings you will be able to achieve! Worry no more: you’ll be in a much better position to make a decision faster with our latest guide: How to Choose the Right Energy Management Software.

Public Administration is a sector with great potential for energy savings: large buildings, geographically dispersed, old equipment… Furthermore, they have the need, not only for their budget, but ethically, to save energy and be more efficient. Today we present you an implementation success story from our partner CIAS COM for the Ministry of Justice of the Spanish Government, who has saved 22% in their electric bills.
