An industry-leading energy management platform provides unlimited energy reporting and secure data storage and management
Spreadsheets or in-house databases are an ideal way to start managing your energy information. However, as the volume and complexity of data increases, specialist energy management software is needed.
Cani’s web-enabled energy management platform is capable of processing and evaluating all utilities within a single database which can be viewed as a whole, or filtered to suit specific reporting requirements such as utility type, site, organisation or any other defined variable. It securely stores all utilities and relevant data types including invoices, meter readings, half hourly data (including AMR), and any weather or process related data.
By accurately collecting, storing and evaluating energy data, customers are able to make better informed decisions regarding energy usage to reduce waste, save time, measure performance and save money.
Cani Group identifies and recovers overcharges from energy suppliers. Industry statistics suggest that utility suppliers can overcharge customers by up to 5% by value. Our energy management software performs over 35 separate checks to ensure that energy invoices are accurate, even for the most complex invoices and energy tariffs. We have recovered hundreds of thousands of pounds of refunds for our clients over the past 4 years.

Metering services and smart solutions
Cani Group has partnered with Siemens to provide industry-leading metering solutions to its customers.
Siemens has been developing and delivering smart metering in the UK since 1994 and has supplied over 40,000 business customers across the UK including energy suppliers, large multi-site business users and many thousands of small business and single-site customers. Siemens is UK industry-accredited to install, read and maintain the full range of meters in use today; from high end half-hourly, right through to full smart metering.
With energy being one of the largest hidden costs in most businesses, it is vital to understand how much you are consuming in each part of your business. Older analogue meters have been used for many years to monitor electricity use on a periodic basis and to bill the customer for recorded usage, monthly or quarterly – often using estimated consumption and estimated bills. With smart meters, you can see and measure your consumption day by day, and also avoid the confusion over charges associated with estimated billing.
Smart meters are a business requirement from 2014 for certain meter types, with a mandatory requirement for all meters by 2020.

Voltage Power Optimisation
Cani Group works with leading voltage power optimisation (VPO) vendors to reduce clients’ energy use by up to 20%, carbon emissions by up to 15%, and maximum demand by up to 10%.
Aside from reducing energy consumption and costs, the life and reliability of all equipment that runs on electricity is prolonged as electrical equipment (such as motors, HVAC and lighting) performs inefficiently when exposed to excessive voltage and poor power quality. VPO technology solves these problems.
