Global design and innovation company Seymourpowell has announced that its design has been used for the newly launched EcoManager device from EDF Energy, Britain’s largest producer of low carbon electricity. The EcoManager is an innovative new wireless appliance controller which transforms the way consumers both monitor and control the amount of electricity they use in their homes.
The EcoManager allows consumers to see and control the energy consumption of appliances from wherever the device is plugged in, helping people reduce their monthly energy bills. Seymourpowell worked with the team at EDF Energy to design the EcoManager handheld controller unit with which the transmitter plugs communicate. The monitor then displays the relative running costs and CO2 emissions of each connected appliance in real time.
