Smart meters reduce energy

Deutsche Post DHL in the UK is benefiting from the use of so-called smart meters. These are intelligent measurement devices that record detailed electricity and gas consumption data.

The smart meters in the UK collect energy consumption data every half hour. This enables a daily profile of energy consumption to be created that provides increased visibility when compared to traditional monthly invoices. This data is then uploaded to a user-friendly internet portal to allow employees to review energy consumption, identify opportunities and to review the impact of implemented initiatives.

In the UK, almost 90% of Deutsche Post DHL’s electricity and gas meters are smart meters, which continue to provide detailed and timely energy data to support our energy reduction programs.
