Geo launches smart energy solution combining monitoring and control of energy usage

Householders will, for the first time, be able to benefit from visibility of their home energy usage whilst at the same time take full control of their heating and hot water following the launch of Trio + Heating, a new combined solution from smart energy experts geo.

Developed to meet the growing demands for simple but effective tools that provide both insight into whole home energy consumption and the ability to control and manage it, , Trio + Heating is being launched by geo at the Future of Utilities: Smart Energy 2019 exhibition (16-17 October, Guoman Tower, London).

The development phase of Trio + Heating, which will be available through energy suppliers, was co-funded by a £300,000 (€348,036) grant from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

The solution includes a unique combination of two of geo’s market-leading smart energy products. The first is the Trio II in-home display, a smart energy monitor and the second, is Cosy, a proven smart thermostat solution. Control is managed through the display, a mobile phone app or by using devices such as Amazon Echo or Google Home. As a result, Trio + Heating provides visibility of whole home energy consumption as well as delivering control over heating and hot water.

“Consumers increasingly look to their energy provider for guidance when it comes to improving management of their home energy usage,” said Patrick Caiger-Smith, CEO at geo. “Trio + Heating delivers energy suppliers with the ideal solution – not only does it put control firmly in the hands of their customers, it also gives them the visibility they need to make positive changes and reduce their energy costs. The added bonus for suppliers is that it can also increase customer acceptance of smart meter installations. .”
