Alas, no time for a BBQ competition for summer 2016-17

Frequent readers of WattClarity will recall our keen interest in understanding the nature of electricity demand, and particularly peak electricity demand over summer – for a number of reasons including our frequent summer “BBQ give-away” competition. Indeed, some super-keen competition entrants have even been chasing us about the competition for summer 2016-17 – hence this post….

Unfortunately, we’ve been up to our eyeballs in serving our diverse bunch of clients (some of whom have been with us all 17 years now, whilst others have just come onboard in the past week or two, and a whole bunch in between).   Hence we have no time to organise the competition, and may not have as much time through Q1 2017 as we’d like to complete and post detailed analysis.

Amongst other things we’re working on, stay tuned in 2017 for more upgrades to ez2view, a new version of NEM-Review clients have been told about (keenly seeking input on the beta there!), a new version of NEM-Watch, some new services in the Battery Storage space, more for Demand Response capable energy users, and a range of other new services …

For those without paid-up licensed access to one of our software products, you’re able to watch how Operational Demand unfolds through summer through the Energy Consumer’s Australia sponsored NEM-Watch Consumption Widget, which is located:

1)  On the ECA website here; and

2)  On the NEM-Watch portal here, complete with an explanation of the data provided; and

3)  It’s also on a number of other websites, where these 3rd Party “Hosts” have chosen to embed this widgetno charge for doing this, just click on the “Embed” button on the widget, enter your email address and follow the prompts:


Wishing all our readers Happy Christmas, Merry New Year, and Great Holidays from all of us at Global-Roam.
