Challenge / Goal

Gathering energy data from the variety of channels and sources operating within Stirling Council buildings and sites into one single repository is essential to improving the facilities, mechanisms, processes and procedures used to identify energy wastage.

This innovative service also supports work to identify opportunities for energy consumption reduction on a more timeous basis. 


This project has enabled data generated from Stirling Council’s energy monitoring assets to be captured on a centrally management platform – The Energy Hub.

The Hub operates as a single point for monitoring and reviewing peak energy use in addition to providing details of real time renewable energy generation at Stirling Council buildings and sites. The Hub also supports the development of reliable and meaningful predictions on future energy consumption, resultant decreases in emissions or any associated cost reductions. 

Citizen participation

This project was delivered as part of the 'Scotland's 8th City - the Smart City' ERDF programme. All cities involved are committed to 'community and citizen stakeholder engagement' as an additional programme output - with engagement equired pre-, during, and post-project delivery.

Pre-Delivery: Stirling Council had initial discussions with the suppliers involved in the current systems to see what was feasible to achieve. This information formed part of our Product Specification for Procurement. 

During Implementation: Discussions were held with the IT department of Stirling Council and the external contractors to identify any additional infrastructure required from Stirling Council to aid external network connect, also discussed connection points and timescales within which Council IT department will make that available to external contractors. Constantly updating participating Schools and sites on progress made, arranging access to contractors on site visits for installations and upgrade works. 

Post-delivery: User Experience questionnaires completed with stakeholders to build consensus around outputs and KPIs from the Smart Hub.
