Our 4-Gets process

How it works

At EnergyElephant we combine simple to use software with our easy to follow "4 Gets" process, to help you improve sustainability, reduce costs and save time.

See below how an Elephant never 4Gets.

Friendly A.I. automation robot
Automated Data Collection

You don’t want to spend your time checking if people have uploaded the latest data, which is why we have automated the whole process.

Data is automatically retrieved by EnergyElephant from smart meters and sensors, supplier portals, business intelligence systems and APIs.

Bill stamped as paid by accounts
Bill Processing & Validation

EnergyElephant processes data out of bills so that you don’t have to. Automated systems also validate the data to detect issues and anomalies, flagging estimated bills and letting you know when there is something you should investigate.

As well as common-sense checks against expected consumption and cost, bills are also validated against local regulatory and tax data.

Data processing pipeline
Data cleaning & standardisation

EnergyElephant’s data analytics pipeline applies a rigorous cleaning and standardisation to inbound data before centralising it in custom cloud databases.

This means that no matter which company is your current provider of energy, water or other services, your data is easily and always accessible and in formats that enable comparison and align with key reporting requirements.

List of K.P.I.s for improving sustainability
Improve sustainability across energy, waste, water & carbon

No matter the size of your organisation, it’s important to be able to see how each asset is performing and to quickly identify those using significant levels of resources so that they can be targeted with efficiency improvements.

EnergyElephant provides that universal picture as well as enabling you to dive down to the specific meters and sensors deployed on an asset, to see exactly what they are doing.

Wallet bulging with cash from cost savings
Reduce costs and identify opportunities

For any organization, getting a return on investment (RoI) from projects is essential. As energy and carbon costs increase and become more volatile, it is essential businesses and organizations check every area for saving opportunities.

EnergyElephant helps by highlighting cost saving opportunities, tracking unit rates/contract periods, identifying zero usage meters and penalty charges, showing wastage patterns and helping purchasing/procurement teams.

Combined line and bar chart tracking progress against a baseline
Budgets, Benchmarks, Baselines & Projections

EnergyElephant helps you create your energy tracking baselines and benchmarks you against peers and best in class.

The platform also provides monitoring and verification (M&V) tools to track performance against benchmarks and your own internal targets over time.

Small steps & giant leaps

For each building, vehicle or other asset in your organisation, EnergyElephant identifies and recommends project opportunities that will help improve sustainability with measurable results.

As well as identifying the opportunities, EnergyElephant’s custom analytics tools provide the means to assessing which projects should be prioritised and their performance against organisational targets.

Ideas, opportunities and projects
Develop A Smart Opportunity Register

One of the first steps for any organization in creating a climate action plan is to highlight the projects completed and those considered but not yet done. It is also important to think of both short term and longer term projects.

EnergyElephant’s smart opportunity register helps in two ways.

  1. It helps identify projects which should be assessed for their effectiveness and payback.
  2. It tracks the current status of projects considered, completed or rejected.

Sorting data into appropriate groups
Divisions, Personal Collections & Realtime Emissions

Assigning ownership and responsibility for actions and assets can be difficult, especially in larger organizations with multiple assets, buildings and staff. Using the most accurate carbon emissions for science based targets can also be confusing.

EnergyElephant structures data into groups call Divisions, which should reflect an organization’s structure across business units. Owners can then be assigned to specific Divisions. It also allow a high degree of flexibility by allowing users create personal collections for once off analysis or unusual data groupings as well as use real time grid emission factors or other reporting. frameworks where required.

Set and track targets

Setting targets can help focus efforts within your organisation on improving efficiency and trigger positive changes in practice and process.

Set energy efficiency, carbon reduction and sustainability targets across your organisation and assets, with baselines calculated against your historic performance and progress tracked in realtime.

Moving fast and getting more done
Act quickly to resolve issues

Sometimes it is the small things that end up leading to the biggest improvements or costs. Getting data and acting on it in a timely manner is essential for good management.

EnergyElephant focuses on getting these insights to users quickly and effectively, whether it be a meter point falling out of contract with a supplier, through to an unusual pattern of usage based on meter readings/sensors.

High-five between team-mates
Keep teams motivated and up to speed

Great teams need great tools. Green teams, facility team and C suite managers all want fast, effective, simple to use tools.

Giving teams access to EnergyElephant gives them a motivational tool as well as a deep corporate knowledge base to build and learn from today and into the future.

Save time
Automated Data Processing

Data is extracted automatically, and immediately available for analysis. This saves time, and avoids tedious and error prone data entry.

Bill Validation

EnergyElephant’s automated bill validation detects a wide range of bill issues. Each bill is validated both in isolation, and in conjunction with other data, such as other Bills for the same Meter Point & Interval Data where available. As well as self contained validation, bills are also validated against known regulatory and tax data.
