Podcast: Discussing Digital Energy with Matt Roderick (Founder of n3rgy)
Matthew Roderick, the founder of ground-breaking energy data company, n3rgy, speaks to Tom Woolley for the first ever episode of Energy Matters.
Together with host Tom, Matt discusses the essential role that energy data plays in global efforts to decarbonise. A role which has only recently been made possible through the ongoing digitalisation of energy systems worldwide due to new smart metering technologies.
They explore how improved accessibility to energy data (which can tell us exactly how much, where, and when we consume energy) is today empowering consumers and businesses to not only lower their costs and carbon emissions, but also enable profitability, productivity and innovation across new markets outside of traditional utilities.
