Defining quality energy data: What to expect

In the world of energy data, quality often takes a backseat to quantity. Reliable and accurate data is essential for meeting rising demands, yet it has remained an expensive and elusive commodity.

Defining Quality Energy Data: What to Expect

The existing energy data on the market tend to fall short in terms of resolution, insight, and reliability. 

At Å Insite, we're committed to change that narrative by providing high-quality energy data. But what sets quality data apart, and why is so much of it unreliable?


Data on a component level

To effectively manage power consumption, you must pinpoint the driving factors. Most energy data merely provides aggregated figures for entire buildings or sections, which offers limited insight.

High-quality energy data, however, delves deeper, allowing real-time insights all the way down to the component level. This level of granularity is where the data truly shines.


High-quality energy data gives answers to key questions such as:

  • Where and when is the energy consumption the highest?
  • What constitutes the base load?
  • What creates the highest peaks?
  • Which components are the primary energy drivers?
  • Are some components using more energy than expected?

When you have the answers to these questions, you can identify errors, and habits and measure what has a significant impact on your energy consumption.


Detecting and correcting errors

Most energy data is full of errors, and to maintain a constant flow of correct data is highly resource-demanding.

With high-quality energy data, you should be able to detect and correct errors as they arise, ensuring that the processed data aligns with actual usage - even in cases of raw data gaps.



A misconfigured power cable with phases in the order 2-3-1 instead of 1-2-3 will lead to incorrect meter readings.

A simple algorithm can rectify this issue, eliminating the need for costly reinstallation.


Tailored for its purpose

Quality energy data goes beyond resolution and error correction; it must also be customized for its intended use. This means the data undergoes specific processing and is structured with metadata aligned with its purpose.

In essence, what you see as immediate information should cater to your primary measurement needs.

Some industries require real-time data on individual components for energy-saving measures. For others, distinguishing between different areas of an office building on a monthly basis ensures accurate tenant billing.
