Energy Switching Algorithm and Database
Our client needed an algorithm to create current and historical yearly consumer energy costs. This was required across all possible tariffs and regions for a cost savings calculator.
We designed a stand-alone algorithm to precisely calculate the total cost of any given usage and tariff structure. This algorithm powered an energy-switching website enabling customers to obtain the cheapest price across all tariffs according to their usage. Alongside this, we designed an off-line database that not only mimicked the action of the website, but also allowed in-depth analysis of the consumer energy market.
The efficient algorithm that was built enabled this website to function more accurately and much faster. The new in-house database was used for switchers’ savings analysis, market pricing analysis and numerous other projects (see our case study Energy Big Number).
