EcoTroks™ energy efficiency

Energy efficiencyGridPocket’s software-as-a-service white label platform solution for energy utilities is developed to propose secure energy consumption profile insight to household clients in order to encourage them to implement  energy efficiency behavior, in turn resulting in reduced consumption or peak load shifting. The system rewards households with EcoTroks™ energy efficiency points for energy efficient behavior, which can be used to buy gifts. This gaming tactic is effective for sustained consumer engagement through a positive feedback relationship. 

“EcoTroks are a great thing! My energy provider enables me to verify my consumption and buy gifts for my eco actions.” EcoTroks service user, Cannes, 2013

The energy consumer is the most important actor in demand response management. Our green nudge energy efficiency program proposes to your client to :  

Analyse the energy consumption

Energy consumption visualisation

Large portfolio of energy indicators in order to help understand the impact of energy consumption. Information is displayed through detailed analysis of daily, weekly, monthly and yearly consumption through access to extended periods of historical data.

This is how people can identify the most important energy consumption, their minimum, maximum and basic values and also the phantom load consumption caused by forgetting to switch off the appliances or unplug a telephone charger.
