Public display of energy savings

An easy way to gauge how much energy you save through the autoplay dashboard solution


The autopage display solution can provide you with information about how many trees you have saved for a set period, what your carbon emissions are, how your consumption compares to a previous month – parameters can be selected to showcase positive performance, but also give warning of increased pressure on your system allowing an awareness of excessive use. 

By positioning screens in public areas, or on staff computers, the dashboard loops through a sequence of displays continuously, and gives you the option of selecting the information you wish to share with staff and the public, thereby creating more awareness and visibility of your energy performance.  

The system allows energy consumption data to be integrated with other business data, like production data, for optimal reporting and dashboard display usage. Deployment is quick and cost-effective delivering optimal return on investment.

The availability of reliable, good quality energy data makes for accurate display of energy performance, and carries with it many other reporting and energy management benefits.

By aligning your reporting requirements to your energy management plan, or specific energy saving initiative, you can make informed decisions on your energy use, be alerted to high usage periods in realtime to facilitate corrective action timeously, set baselines for energy measurement and verification, benchmark your energy use against others in your industry, etc.

Reports are delivered via e-mail (usually in PDF) format with content customised to user selected requirements.
