N/a - research and technology
BP is seeking to improve energy efficiency in our existing operations and help our customers do the same. Increasingly, digital technology has a role to play in this. This is one of the reasons why we have invested in Voltaware, an electricity data intelligence company that has developed an internet-enabled energy monitoring device that allows businesses and residential users to track their energy demand.
The device analyses the electric signal to break down consumption data from individual appliances, allowing users to better understand and manage their electricity use. It also gives businesses the chance to track the performance of individual pieces of machinery and identify any equipment that needs repair or replacement before it fails. The data on any given appliance can be accessed and analysed in real time using an associated app.
