Perth, Western Australia, Australia, 2010/03/16 - Energy software solution delivers powerful elements of education awareness automation programme, tools to drive and assist behavioural change as well as robust reporting engine capable of integrating information from many tenant and building systems.
With the current WA state governments most recent indication that the cost of energy will increase, on average, anywhere between 30 – 60 percent over the next three years and murmurings of gas price increases, the timing on release of Go Lime Solutions innovative utilities software solution for businesses to better manage this key area, seems destined to succeed.
Proudly West Australian owned, Go Lime Solutions (golimesolutions.com) realised the pressure on organisations to address energy and other key areas of utilities was becoming more prevalent and set to developing an innovative and flexible software solution. Evidence was that whilst early adaptors of energy solutions had identified the importance of monitoring and managing the energy lifecycle. The key areas of real time reporting, automated education awareness programs and driving behavioural change were significant steps omitted resulting in an incomplete lifecycle where real time and pertinent continuous improvement indicators for organisations were not available.
Beyond this, current CEO, John Levingston indicated that the prerequisite for flexibility of this technology was paramount in the early stages of development. Much of the key market research identified that whilst increase in energy costs are not enough to make most organisations develop significant changes the possibility of such increases in all traditional utilities areas such as gas, water, solar and other data inputs such as car fleet and wood became a powerful story.
With its origins of development, significant testing and pilot work undertaken through the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA, the feature rich solution includes powerful elements of education awareness automation programme, tools to drive and assist behavioural change as well as a robust reporting engine capable of integrating information from historical data, building management systems and the organisation or tenancy, delivering real time data to key areas of management across the organisation.
Mandatory reporting is becoming more of a driver for energy efficiency with the current federal government legislating for mandatory disclosure on building energy efficiencies energy reporting for the building owner. Whilst the working details of this legislation are still to unfold, reporting on building and energy efficiencies rating through the NGER system is one which building owners can now offer innovative technology for not just the building rating but increase that offering directly through to the end tenancy.
The launch of this innovative and flexible software solution will see organisations now able to look to IT solutions as another direct approach to proactive energy and utilities management.
