Half-Hourly Meter

Half-Hourly Meters

EGi Business Energy are committed to offering comprehensive energy solutions, which includes advising businesses on the usage and acquisition of half-hourly meters. These meters are particularly beneficial for businesses with substantial electricity consumption demands, as well as those seeking accurate and detailed insights into their energy usage.

For gas consumption, the equivalent of half-hourly meters is often referred to as "automated meter reading" (AMR) or "smart meters." These meters provide more accurate and frequent data on gas usage, similar to how half-hourly meters work for electricity.

What is a half-hourly meter?

A half-hourly meter is an advanced energy monitoring device that measures your electricity consumption at 30-minute intervals throughout the day. This real-time data provides accurate insights into your energy usage patterns. If the full MPAN on your meter starts with (00), then this means your meter is a Half-hourly meter (see diagram above).

How do half-hourly meters work?

Half-hourly meters are connected to a data collection system that automatically gathers consumption data and sends it to your energy supplier. This data helps both you and your supplier monitor usage, optimize energy efficiency, and manage costs.

What are the benefits of half-hourly meters?

Half-hourly meters offer a range of benefits for businesses seeking precise energy management, allowing them to make informed decisions, reduce costs, and enhance operational efficiency. These benefits include, but are not limited to:

Businesses can monitor energy consumption in real time, enabling swift responses to unexpected usage changes and helping prevent overages.

Half-hourly meters provide precise, real-time data on energy consumption, leading to accurate billing based on actual usage rather than estimates.

With accurate consumption data, businesses can negotiate better energy rates and understand pricing structures offered by suppliers.

Half-hourly meters offer granular insights into energy usage patterns throughout the day, allowing businesses to identify peak demand periods and areas for potential energy savings.

Accurate energy consumption data helps businesses develop more accurate budget forecasts, avoiding unexpected high bills due to unforeseen consumption spikes.

By identifying peak demand times, businesses can strategically manage energy-intensive activities to avoid costly peak demand charges and improving operational efficiency.

Real-time monitoring enables businesses to pinpoint inefficiencies, optimize energy usage, and implement strategies for reducing waste.

Half-hourly meters facilitate better control over energy use, aiding in the reduction of carbon emissions and contributing to sustainability goals.

Half-hourly meters assist businesses in meeting regulatory reporting requirements related to energy consumption and emissions.

Historical data from half-hourly meters aids in forecasting future energy consumption, helping businesses plan for growth or changes in demand.
