Urjanet Utility Data Service is considered by judges to be an exemplary product.
One judge said of Urjanet’s Utility Data Service: “Urjanet has been successful with its Utility Data Service because it focuses on solving a specific, difficult problem – collecting and managing utility consumption and cost data – with a unique solution that works well. Organizations looking to reduce energy consumption and costs need accurate data to work with, and the Urjanet platform supports that by automatic collection and normalization of utility bill data including electricity, gas, water, and waste. Urjanet can collect data from over 3,500 global utilities.”
Another added, “The product’s unique value is demonstrated by the fact that many energy and sustainability service providers have incorporated Urjanet into their own solution offerings. This is a practical solution that has delivered real value to customers and the environment.”
