Case studies


Cut the cost of lighting in half

A major sports stadium in Melbourne enjoys the benifits of a complete lighting upgrade over 6 indoor basket ball courts.

Smart Energy Groups was used to measure and verify the energy usages and confirm projected savings from the project.  This helped secure financing for the lighting project and demonstrate the actual savings.

Apart from a significant improvement in court illumination, there are other interesting aspects from this project.  The operators of the statium have been able to btter understand court usage patterns, using this information to identify opportunities to find new ways to book the space and earn additional revenue.

What you need

  • SEGmeter lives in your switchboard
  • Current clamps sense energy flows
  • They clip around the wires in your switchboard
  • Installed in a home switchboard
  • A medium industrial installation
  • A megawatt of lighting at a sports oval

A device to measure your energy usage

You can bring your own device, or get one from us!

Our SEGmeter is installed in or near your switchboard. It has multiple inputs to measure many circuits in your business or home, allowing a real energy breakdown

It is connected to your internet, and our automated discovery will set everything up for you.

Once everything is setup, close up your switchboard and enjoy using our software to understand and take steps to become Energy Aware!

And it's yours, take it with you when you move and set up up in your new home

How it works

  • We can't change what we don't measure.
  • SEGmeter has a bunch of current sensors which detect the energy flowing through your switchboard, into your circuits for lights, power, air conditioning and other things.
  • It measures this energy and sends the consumption information to smartenergygroups.com every minute or so.
  • We turn all this data into information, giving you the insight and the power to use less.
