Guru Hub II
The Guru Hub II is the next generation of smart metering technology for decentralised energy. It is the building block for our wider platform, including pay-as-you-go and Guru Pinpoint monitoring.
Guru Pinpoint is ground-breaking. A sector first, it gives developers, operators and engineers access to real-time performance data on heat networks, helping to identify and stamp out inefficiencies and performance issues.
Pay-as-you-go & Monitoring
Our PAYG utility platform provides residents with a simple way to control their energy use, and allows housing managers and operators to manage debt risk.
The Guru system provides insight into both consumption and network performance. This has enabled us to ensure that units are set up to ensure the network operates efficiently giving us unique insight into network operations.
Guru Systems’s technology has transformed the way we deliver and monitor the heat we supply to our tenants, to such an extent that we are now revisiting earlier developments to install Guru’s meters where previously we had old-fashioned prepayment meters.
The data is particularly useful for us at DECC, we need the real-world evidence about how we could reduce costs and improve the energy efficiency of heat networks, and to get to that point we have to disseminate all of the learning that is coming out of innovations, such as Guru Pinpoint.
“The detailed, diagnostic information provided by real-time network performance data was critical to identifying technical irregularities and the causes of inefficiency. It was vital that these issues were spotted at a time when our contractors were on site.”
Being able to access up to the minute information has proved really useful. Having the information once a week, or even longer than that, means that by the time you identify an issue it could be too late and a family could have been living without heating for a significant amount of time.
Energy and heating can be an invisible cost for social landlords as we take on the role of heat suppliers. Guru Systems has helped us to understand how to make our heating network more efficient, minimise costs for our tenants and support those at risk of fuel poverty.
It is strategically important to develop expertise in the efficient commissioning and running of heat networks. Guru Systems, which provides the metering, payment and control system for the Stratford Plaza development, is helping to significantly diminish the risks involved in its approach.
