No more careless energy consumption

In 2021, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) conducted the largest survey of attitudes to the climate crisis to date, The Peoples’ Climate Vote


The survey has given us unique knowledge of what 1.2 million people around the world think about climate change and climate action.

Just to mention a few key findings:

  • Nearly 2/3 (64%) of citizens in 50 countries believe that climate change constitutes a global emergency
  • Nearly 90% of respondents are worried about the future of the environment and worried about whether there will be enough clean water and food for their grandchildren.
  • Almost 70% of the respondents believe that their own choices can make a difference and are prepared to boycott companies and brands that cause global warming, either directly or indirectly.

Key Account Manager Taimi Rovanen, EG EnerKey, recognize the development from her meetings with customers:

"We can already see how environmental values guides consumers, investors, and companies to look more and more critically and broadly at sustainability in their supply chains, on environmental actions, and the use of natural resources," says Taimi Rovanen.


We have neither time nor money to waste our energy

For years, careless energy consumption has been one of the biggest causes for emission and there is a desire to reduce the environmental impact caused by wasteful energy use. Taimi Rovanen points to the fact that there is a growing need for reducing both the cost of energy and the impact on the environment caused by energy waste.

Therefore, there is an urgent need for both public and private companies to put digital energy management on the agenda:

"We need action now, as we are already seeing how the increasing popularity of decentralized and renewable energy systems is destabilizing the established market and increasing the need for flexibility in relation to demand and energy storage. At the same time, companies are competing in a growing global network of growth, profitability, and corporate reputation," says Taimi Rovanen.


A need for faster action

As a result, the time horizon of energy management has changed, and long-term planning has shifted to a need for real-time response.

"This requires automated data that is combined, processed, and enriched using artificial intelligence. Innovative organizations that use data and artificial intelligence develop and respond quickly and succeed in monetizing their raw data", says Taimi Rovanen.

The analyzed data is used to identify problems in internal processes, to improve business efficiency and profitability and to minimize risks.

"In this way, information stays centralized in the right locations and cannot "evaporate" into the data jungle," says Taimi Rovane.


Get a grip on your energy consumption and CO2-footprint

EG Ines is EG EnerKey’s artificial intelligence feature and has been developed for the purpose of automating the analysis work. This is intended for companies and organizations who want to act resource-conscious and reduce the environmental impact of their business.

EG Ines collects data from various sources, from sensors to the utility companies' meters and user consumption, operating time and weather data to find savings potential and thus reduce the environmental impact.
Simultaneously, EG Ines improves the efficient and effective use of human resources, while finding saving potentials that are easily overlooked. EG Ines presents ready-made proposals for measures that gives time to react to problems and focus on the core business of the company or organization.

With EG EnerKey and EG Ines, it is possible to collect all entered data for use in climate reporting with relevant key figures based on the GHG protocol and the relevant GRI standards.
