EDP partnered with CSide to offer the service re:dy, which is an Advanced Energy Management and Automation Services platform directed at residential customers or small businesses.
re:dy is an innovative system that allows consumers to remotely manage their energy consumption. Moreover, the platform also monitors small-scale solar power systems and alerts consumers if their system stops working. Consumers also learn about their energy consumption, and can remotely control smart equipment (air conditioning, heating, smart plugs, etc.) to make their homes and business more energy efficient.
InovGrid's project intends to improve service quality, promote energy efficiency, environmental sustainability, increase the penetration of renewable energies and electric vehicles while reducing operating costs. This is done through devices that automate grid management
Together with EDP, CSide provides its smart energy and automation solutions so that consumers can visualize and monitor their energy consumption in real-time, while controlling multiple appliances remotely.
CSide sustainable home solution is delivered via its unique service delivery platform, which already provides utilities, telco's and service providers with a range of added-value services. Consumers control their total electricity consumption, as well as the consumption of each individual appliance every day, week, month or year. Consumers know the time of the day they use more energy, and can decide to use it only when electricity is cheaper by controlling their appliances.
