Knowledge gained by monitoring is the driver for actions.

The key to get where you want to go is to know where you are now. Early on, Ii started monitoring energy and utility consumptions.

Ii municipality (pronounced “ee”) is a member of the Finnish carbon neutral municipality initiative, HINKU, coordinated by the Finnish Environment Institute.

Challenges and Actions

The member municipalities not only commit to improve their own carbon balance, but also to influence that of the whole community, businesses and private consumption in the municipal area. The municipality of Li has purposefully realised 43 separate improvement projects.

Encouraged by good success, Ii advanced the 80% reduction target from the original year 2030 to 2020, involving all carbon emissions in the municipal area, not only by the municipal operators.

ionSign provided Neutron12 units to collect data from energy, electricity and water meters on one server, via the municipal TCP-IP network.

Micropolis, the local development company, realised the project. They built a bespoke management and reporting system, based on EmonCMS, an open source solution, maintained by OpenEnergyMonitor.org. ionSign offered all interface documentation to support building the communications. The EmonCMS provides required calculations, data repository and visualisations. Data flows directly from the Neutron field units to the EmonCMS server, in the internal municipal network.

 

Lessons & Results

Some twenty Neutron12s are now in use and more will be installed in years to come, to improve the coverage and granularity of energy and utility data.

RegioStars Award presented to IiFor their success in carbon reduction, the European Union awarded Ii with the RegioStars Prize in climate action category, in October 2017. Already in May 2017, the Agenda2030 youth group had awarded Ii with their special prize of sustainable development.
