Good Energy Chief Technology Officer, David Ivell, is delivering a digital strategy that harnesses innovations in renewable energies to tackle climate change.
The renewable energy sector has changed dramatically since Good Energy was founded and Ivell is currently focused on making it easier for people to engage with the energy they used.
Smart metres play an integral part in bringing about this change and Good Energy has been rolling out the next generation of SMETS2 (Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specifications) appliances to customers since January 2019.
“At the moment, you’ve probably got one contract on your solar, one for your energy, and a different way of managing your electric vehicle,” Ivell told CIO UK. “What we want to do is to pull those together, so you see on your mobile phone within an app what energy you’re producing, what energy you’re consuming, the energy within your electric vehicles and all of those sorts of things.
“What I’d like to see is that when you go to work in the morning, that the house is actually generating power while we go to work.”
