Client Spotlight

Enica Ltd Revolutionise their Energy Management business with MRI Energy

Enica, founded two decades ago, emerged from a background in building services consultancy with a core focus on improving energy and water efficiency within buildings. Over the years, the company has evolved to become a leading provider of innovative energy management solutions, catering to a diverse clientele spanning commercial, industrial, and public sectors. Enica’s journey began with a mission to help clients optimise the performance of their buildings through targeted energy improvements.

Recognising the pivotal role of data in driving informed decision-making, Enica has developed a business that is dedicated to not only supplying, installing, and maintaining metering systems for buildings but also leveraging cutting-edge technology to extract actionable insights from collected energy data, empowering clients to achieve tangible energy and financial savings.

This operational model, which Enica has been working within for the past 15 years, revolves around harnessing the power of MRI Energy to access data analysis, fault detection, and project management tools to deliver impactful improvements to clients’ energy management processes.

Choosing MRI Energy

Enica’s decision to adopt MRI Energy as its preferred software platform was driven by several key factors, including the platform’s comprehensive functionality via a single, integrated platform capable of handling various aspects of energy management seamlessly.

One of the key pillars of Enica’s operation lies in its holistic approach to energy management. The company employs a team of skilled electrical and mechanical engineers, complemented by a dedicated bureau service tasked with utilising MRI Energy to its fullest potential. This integrated approach enables Enica to serve as a trusted advisor to its clients, guiding them through every stage of their energy efficiency journey.

MRI Energy’s flexibility and adaptability also played a crucial role in Enica’s decision-making process. The platform’s ability to accommodate different types of data, integrate with a range of sensors and systems, and support custom configurations allowed the team at Enica to tailor their energy management solutions to each client’s unique requirements.

Enica’s confidence and continued use of MRI Energy are bolstered by its proven track record of success. Having worked with the platform for over 15 years, Enica has witnessed firsthand its reliability, performance, and ability to deliver tangible results for clients across diverse industries.

Data Analysis and Insights

MRI Energy’s advanced analytics capabilities enable the team at Enica to make informed decisions based on real-time data and comprehensive insights. By leveraging MRI Energy’s powerful algorithms and visualisation tools, Enica can identify trends, patterns, and anomalies in energy consumption, empowering the company to devise targeted strategies for optimising efficiency and reducing costs.

MRI Energy’s predictive analytics capabilities enable Enica to forecast future energy consumption trends and anticipate potential issues before they occur. By analysing historical data and identifying patterns, MRI Energy empowers Enica to develop proactive maintenance schedules, optimise equipment operation, and mitigate risks, thereby enhancing overall system reliability and performance.

Operational Efficiency

By automating data collection and analysis processes, MRI Energy enables Enica to streamline its operations. Using MRI Energy as a core element of the business means that the team at Enica can benefit from simplified data management processes, a reduced likelihood of errors, and a centralised platform for managing energy efficiency projects. MRI Energy facilitates seamless communication, collaboration, and project tracking, ensuring that Enica delivers high-quality services to its clients efficiently and effectively.

Fault Detection and Alarm Systems

With real-time data collection and analytics, MRI Energy continuously monitors building systems and equipment for signs of inefficiency or malfunction. Through sophisticated fault detection algorithms and alarm systems, MRI Energy alerts the team at Enica to potential issues such as leaks, equipment failures, or excessive energy usage in real-time, allowing Enica to take proactive measures to address these issues before they escalate.


MRI Energy provides Enica with the ability to benchmark energy performance across multiple sites, buildings, or equipment types. By comparing energy usage data against established benchmarks or industry standards, Enica can identify underperforming assets or areas for improvement, enabling the company to implement targeted interventions to drive performance improvements and maximise savings.

For example, Enica has been able to identify a £1 million a year water leak within an NHS trust site. The client was unaware of the leak as their bills had remained consistent, however through analytics of their consumption patterns and benchmarking, the issue could be identified and rectified.

Engagement and Reporting

MRI Energy facilitates transparent communication and collaboration with clients through intuitive reporting and data visualisation tools. By presenting complex energy data in a clear and accessible format, Enica can effectively communicate key insights, performance metrics, and actionable recommendations to clients, fostering greater engagement and trust.

Additionally, MRI Energy simplifies validating the effectiveness of implemented measures and quantifying the resulting savings by providing robust measurement and verification capabilities. This allows the team at Enica to validate energy savings with confidence and demonstrate the tangible impact of its interventions to clients.

Flexibility and Scalability

MRI Energy’s flexibility allows Enica to adapt to changing client needs and evolving technology. For example, MRI Energy synergises with Enica’s use of IoT systems by serving as a centralised hub for aggregating and analysing data from diverse sensor networks.

As Enica specialises in IoT deployment, partnering with Vodafone IoT and integrating various sensors, MRI Energy’s compatibility with multiple protocols and data formats ensures seamless integration of IoT-generated data. This capability enables Enica to collect a wide array of sensor data, including CO2 levels, footfall, temperature, and humidity, alongside energy and water consumption data to create correlations and building models.

By consolidating this disparate data within MRI Energy, Enica gains a comprehensive understanding of building performance and usage patterns, facilitating more accurate analysis and actionable insights.

Additionally, MRI Energy’s flexibility allows Enica to develop custom drivers for accessing new sensor data, ensuring scalability and adaptability to evolving IoT technologies such as cellular NB-IoT and LoRaWAN.

Strong Support and Partnership

Enica valued the strong support and partnership provided by MRI Energy’s team. From initial implementation to ongoing technical assistance and strategic guidance, Enica has benefited from a collaborative relationship with MRI Energy’s dedicated support staff, ensuring that its needs are met and challenges addressed promptly.

“We use MRI Energy, 8 hours per day 5 days per week plus constant analytics rules and alarms outside of that… We’re probably one of the customers that pushes the product to its limit, one of the most knowledgeable about the product.” – David Harden, Managing Director, Enica Ltd.
