Procurement of Energy and Carbon Reporting InnovationDigital transformation efforts are expected to increase in 2021 and that’s why we have brought EaaSi® to market.
Digital Energy Data is where it is at!
Innovation in energy procurement and carbon reporting.
No business is immune to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. But many businesses have shown their digital worth during such unprecedented times. Some have quickly switched to a digital existence, with teams setting up home offices and working virtually. Others have leant on the support of the furlough scheme which has offered much needed support and respite during difficult times.
But what have lockdowns and the new normal taught us? Digital is where it is at! From Zoom to Microsoft Teams we have all been immersed in a digital life. This digitalisation of our lives has also encouraged further development within the energy consultancy and energy spend management marketplace – and we believe it’s about time…
Digital transformation efforts are expected to increase in 2021 and that’s why we have brought EaaSi® to market. EaaSi® (energy as a service interactive) is powered by robotic process automation (RPA). A cloud-based platform, EaaSi® has been the culmination of 18-months hard work at Catalyst. It’s unique in the fact that it harnesses RPA, to make it work in parallel to the existing energy market infrastructure in the UK. This is its superpower!
It is, in essence, a disruptive digital energy spend management platform.
It’s still a niche technology at the moment but it will become mainstream in the next couple of years. We brought this product to market in September 2019 and already we are seeing customer hooked into the platform and the data it delivers.
From energy managers to finance personnel, from energy champions in the business to a client’s wider stakeholder community, EaaSi® gives them all visibility and reports on the information they need to help keep energy costs, consumption and carbon emissions in hand.
EaaSi® enables the automation of manual tasks that would usually take people days or weeks to complete into just a few minutes or seconds. While harnessing RPA and the power of machine learning to add a new dynamic to energy management and wrap around value for our customers and does all of this while bringing the management of energy to life.

Combining powerful energy analytics and instant streamlined energy carbon reporting for even the most complicated of portfolios.
RPA is already bringing huge benefits to businesses:
> For example, a client with over 400 UK sites had previously been using industry leading invoice validation software to manage energy spend. However, this process takes six working days with six manual touch points from when the bill is available to get that report to the customer. A huge inconvenience.
> This is where the power of RPA comes to the fore, it completes the same task in less than 24 hours with no human interaction, so the productivity and efficiency savings are huge.
> RPA will make a massive difference with how businesses manage their energy spend now and for the future.
> EaaSi can also obtain the data from SMETS2 meters direct from the customer site. One retail customer with 190NHH meters has no way of accessing and visualising the data and no historical data to assess opportunities for energy cost reduction and insights into energy spend. EaaSi can now deliver this to the customer easily so they can now see their meter data and use this to manage consumption and carbon emissions.
> This new addition also means Catalyst can easily incorporate house-hold meters from those employees working from home into a company’s energy reporting and carbon reporting, which is imperative for many businesses to report on all emissions even from home workers.
