An Australian start-up aims to reduce the normally prohibitive cost of getting an energy assessment with an new app that offers households and business a personalised plan to reduce their power bills.
The group, Ecologic Apps, has created a cloud-based software platform designed to help businesses and household assess their energy consumption levels, allowing them to become more energy efficient.
The home and building energy management software markets have risen sharply in the past few years, with Navigant Research valuing the sector at $US2.3 billion ($2.9 billion) and $US272 billion respectively.
One of Ecologic Apps founders, John McKibbin, has spent the past decade working in the energy industry and wanted to bring his skills and passion for energy efficiency to a broader market.
