Having a complete picture of your energy, carbon and other services, can make a huge difference. SSE’s Business Energy Intelligence (BEI) is our energy visualisation platform that gives you a forensic picture of not just your energy consumption, but also water, EV, carbon, heat, steam and virtual metering and sub-metering. With this knowledge, you can make changes to cut your energy wastage, your bills, and your carbon footprint.

Bringing your data to life

Connected to circa 200,000 meters, BEI‘s cloud-based interactive service is one of the leading platforms available.

Its success is based on it letting you quickly see a series of reports from across your entire estate. Efficient and user-friendly, it includes ‘snapshots’ to help you easily spot any problems. And the ability to set alarms to alert you to certain scenarios. For example, if you suddenly use more energy than normal, an alarm can be raised that will help you identify the reason quickly and efficiently.
