State of dev.Product
Industrial applicationIt is necessary the E-Distribution smart meter to work promptly. Omnia Genius is intended for domestic end- users and micro-business up to 100 kW of contracted power.
Market segmentThe Omnia Genius Italian potential customers are 37 million about. Supposing the advanced version of Omnia Genius with smart control of electrical loads, a starting price of 249,00 € and an annual electricity costs about 560,00 € (3200 kWh) and a gas consumption of 1.400 scm, the payback period for a single user is about 15 months
Advantage factorALL IN ONE system, able to embrace in a single device application areas ranging from energy management to the Smart Living ,which are now offered on the market separately; - Plug&playdevice,thereisnoneedfortechnicaloperationsforitsinstallation; - ADD- ON logic, allowing the integration of the system with other devices without the need for on-site interventions; - Simple and intuitive APP able to "drive" the user in a virtuous containment path of the energy costs; - European patent on smart logic
Commercial challengeThe Smart Metering and smart grids rollout can reduce emissions in the EU by upo to 9% and annual household energy consumption by similar amounts. Today, the consumers have a little information both about long term impact that their behaviours have on electricity generation and about the various prices bands of energy that are better adaptable to their lifestyles. In this scenario Omnia Genius aims to reduce energy costs giving consumers greater control of energy consumption.
