19 Hot Australian Startups to Watch in 2015 - Startup88

19 Hot Australian Startups to Watch in 2015 - Startup88 | Wattcost media articles | Scoop.it

What? Wattcost is a smart power meter that can adapt to existing meters both digital and analogue and provide power monitoring and help reduce power consumption.


Why? This industry is ripe for efficiency gains, we have no idea how much power we use until we get the bill. We would however like to reduce our costs and consumption, but its not possible to get this information in real time.

Existing smart meter solutions require an electrician to attend the site and remove and replace your meter with a smart meter. The costs can be significant. Some newer homes have smart meters but are primarily for the benefit of the energy company, there is no software or systems to help the user save energy.

Wattcost is user installable and works with both digital and analogue meters and is shipping now. Expect either a huge capital injection or a big acquisition offer in 2015.

wattcost's insight:

Pre-order now... shipping mid 2015!
