My Energy Optimiser Feature Summary

February 2024

Key Features

Completely cloud / browser based. No additional hardware required.

  • Provides Tariff and Weather based control of your inverter / battery.
  • Integrates with Octopus smart tariff’s* and all GivEnergy Inverters.
  • Simple interface, all in one solution, accessible through your browser.
  • Support setup on request.
  • Can be installed as an App on your device (mobile and desktop).
  • Community driven development roadmap.

* Octopus Economy 7 / 10 Tariff’s are not currently compatible. Octopus Intelligent Flux takes control of your inverter directly and therefore shouldn’t be used with MyEO.

Data Security

  • Data is secured in transit using HTTPS (You will see the padlock in the browser).
  • Sensitive data such as Post Codes and API keys encrypted at rest (in the database).
  • Users can choose to further secure their accounts with Two Factor Authentication.
  • Only the minimum information required for setup.
  • Payments are handled directly via PayPal. We don’t store any banking details.

Octopus Integration

  • Integrates with All Octopus Smart Tariffs such as Go, Intelligent, and Agile
  • Only two pieces of information required to set up your Electricity Account.
  • The service automatically retrieves your import and export tariff’s.
  • Integration with Economy 7/10 Tariff’s not currently available (on development roadmap)

GivEnergy Integration

  • Works with all GivEnergy Inverters including AIO, and Hybrid.
  • Works with multiple battery strings from a single inverter.
  • Works with single Inverter systems. 
  • Only Two pieces of information required to add your inverter to the service, plus a name of your choice.

Solar Panel Setup

  • Works with single and multi array systems.
  • Only three pieces of information required, all of which should be available from your install.

Consumption / Demand Estimation

  • Your demand estimation is based on your own historic use of your inverter.
  • The estimate is based on a rolling average,  and then adjusted for the the day of the week. User settings, allow for a contingency to in the demand calculations. E.g. an additional 10%.
  • High consuming / intermittent loads such as EV charging can be excluded from the estimated demand calculations.

Generation Forecast

  • Fully integrated weather / solar forecast. No separate third-party account required.
  • Choose to use the service to automatically adjust the target charge, based on estimated demand and forecast generation. User settings, allow for a contingency to in the demand calculations. E.g. a reduction of 10%.

User Settings

  • Quick settings provide a straightforward way to start using the service.
  • Only quick settings that are appropriate for your electricity account (e.g. agile / import / export) are visible.
  • Separate settings provided for charge and discharge control, allowing the user to set as per their requirements.
  • Advanced settings hidden initially (for ease of use).
  • When turned on, Advanced settings are pre-populated with any selected quick settings, allowing for simple refinement of the control. For example, you can choose to charge your battery overnight in the quick settings, and then turn on the advanced settings to adjust the time for the charge to be ready by.

Battery Charge Control

  • Octopus Integration provides Tariff based charging control.
  • Non-Agile users can choose to charge when the import price of grid electricity is below a threshold.
  • Agile users charge during the cheapest agile slots.
  • Agile users can set additional charge slots, to reduce the risk of missing the target charge %.
  • All users can choose to charge all day, or before a user selected time. E.g. overnight.
  • Stop Discharge or Force Discharge based on electricity pricing.

Dashboard

  • A detailed dashboard is included, which is responsive to your device (desktop / mobile)
  • The detailed dashboard provides:
    • Summary of Consumption, Generation and Battery use today.
    • Carbon Widget displays current carbon intensity for your region.
    • Simple Weather Forecast
    • 7-day summary chart of generation and consumption
    • 7-day summary chart of battery charge and discharge
    • Forecast Generation, Consumption and Battery Energy Required for Tomorrow
    • Summary of current charging and discharging slots based on your settings.
    • Option to override target charge e.g. select 100% rather than optimised target charge.
  • A visual schedule updated at 9pm each day provides a summary of the charging plan.
  • An activity summary can be emailed out up to 3 times a day to warn you of errors. 

Charts

  • Annual, Monthly and Weekly Charts for:
    • Consumption
    • Generation
    • Battery Charge / Discharge
    • Self-Consumption
    • Grid Import / Export
    • PV Energy Flow
    • Energy Flow

Future Development

  • Will continue to consider ease of use as far as possible!
  • Will be partly driven by the community.

New Menu Structure

In readiness for an update to the app, the following changes have been made to the menu structure.

A new top level “Schedule” menu has been added. It’s expected you will access this frequently. Under the top level “Schedule” menu you will find:

  • Schedule Summary Table (previously found under the Dashboard menu)
  • Charge and Discharge Schedule Settings (previously found as separate tabs under the settings)
  • Activity Summary (previously found under the Dashboard menu)
  • Activity Log (previously found under the Dashboard menu)

The “Settings” Menu has been renamed “MyEO Account Settings” and has been moved to the “Account” menu. It now only contains settings that you should need initially / infrequently.

Octopus Economy 7 Tariff Compatibility

An issue with collecting tariff data for those on Economy 7 has been identified. At this time we can not reliably get the time periods for switching between day rates and night rates for individual accounts. As such the service is not currently compatible with Economy 7. We apologise for the inconvenience, and we are exploring ways we can resolve this. If you have subscribed and are on Economy 7 please get in touch via the contact form.
