Fidelity brings Buddy to Channel to tackle energy wastage

Fidelity has announced a new partnership with Buddy. Buddy provide a cloud-based, smart solution for monitoring the consumption of commercial building resources.

Buddy supplies monitoring sensors that transmit via a cellular network, enabling real-time data to be captured. This provides insights into resource consumption and supplies the data on an easy to use dashboard.

One of the biggest culprits of energy wastage are companies who use commercial buildings. And despite best efforts to raise awareness, there still remains an ongoing issue with resource wastage. In order to tackle this, businesses will need to become accountable on reporting their energy usage in order to conform with laws set by the SECR (Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting), in which they will be required to provide visibility of energy usage and emissions. When supplying this information, there will be additional reporting needed on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, energy consumption and energy efficiency.

The Buddy system will enable businesses to not only provide this information easily, but to also identify any changes needed. Not only can the service help to reduce a building’s impact on carbon emissions with its ability to fit into every building type, it also allows businesses to reduce costs.

Through the wireless transmitter, high consumption areas can be identified by monitoring temperature, humidity, electricity, gas, water, steam and solar power generation. The data is provided in real-time view, enabling businesses to spot issues before they become a problem.

The Managing Director at Fidelity, Alan Shraga, has said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Buddy Platform to become a full Distribution Partner for the UK market. There is growing pressure in Europe with the 2030 and 2050 targets and recently introduced SECR legislation, which means this is no longer an optional, but ‘must do’ compliance issue for our customers.

“As Fidelity Group looks to bring new value to our customer base, we see Buddy Ohm as a fantastic link between our business units. And the introduction of Buddy Ohm allows us to deliver great value-added services to cross-sell between our businesses. Following our initial market testing earlier this year, we are delighted to expand the sales opportunity to our thousands of energy customers, and our 300 resellers throughout the UK.”
