Checkwatt achieves 1.600 installations

Since 2007 the number and capacity of Photo Voltaic installations in Sweden has significantly increased. Declining prices of photovoltaic equipment, as well as the introduction of the direct capital subsidy system in 2006 and a revision in 2009, make photovoltaic installations competitive. The number of roof-mounted systems installed by private persons or companies built on self-consumption business models has steadily increased and reached a new record in 2017.

Checkwatt, which is a spin-off company from CNet, provides complete solutions in energy production and energy consumption for both private and corporate customers has also significantly increased its market share. By combining electricity meters, electricity certificate meters and user-friendly visualization, Checkwatt helps its customers to keep track of the entire energy production chain and supports the certification of energy produced and fed into the grid.

Checkwatt is proud to announce to have reached 1.600 finished system installations today.

CNet one of finalists in Fortum AI Hackathon

There are four global megatrends that shape the energy sector: climate change and resource efficiency; urbanisation; new technologies and digitalisation; and active customers. These megatrends will bring profound changes not only to how energy is produced and sold to customers, but also to how it is consumed in our daily lives. Fortum is now looking for novel AI-assisted services for customers’ homes and have organised a hackathon challenge AI Comes Home. CNet has been selected as one of the finalists for this hackathon that will take place 7-8 December. We will participate with a intelligent digital assistant that combines both video and voice input to guide consumers in living a more sustainable life.
