KnowNow Information Ltd., Stand E36
Portsmouth, Hampshire – June 10, 2015 – For immediate release:
A new domestic energy management system, designed to minimise space and hot water heating costs throughout the home by using motor racing style data analysis methods and Internet of Things (IoT) technology, is to be launched by its designers, KnowNow Information, at the Eco Technology exhibition in Brighton, June 11-12, Stand E36.
The first system will be installed in Beathouse a new home being built now within a Hampshire conservation area. Constructed with highly insulated factory-made panels, the four-bedroom dwelling will only require four towel rails to heat it. The monthly energy bill calculated by using the Government’s Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is around £70 but with KnowNow’s system, total energy costs are expected to be far lower.
Space heating of rooms is anticipated to require minimal energy and to prove the point the house will be closely monitored in real time using the KnowNow system. The system incorporates advanced sensing devices from a global manufacturer of energy monitoring technology, and data analysis resources from IBM Bluemix, a leading cloud-based internet services platform.
A short presentation about the new system and its first application in the house in Hampshire will be given at the Eco Technology Show 2015 by Chris Cooper, chief technical officer of KnowNow Information. It will take place on day one (Thursday, June 11th) in the Innovation Zone at 10:40 hrs.
