The Energy Savings Trust project relied on CohesiveFT VNS3 technology and the public cloud to rapidly scale their infrastructure without incurring large capital costs. The EST uses a business intelligence (BI) system to aggregate household energy usage data from all 25 million UK households in the IBM public cloud.

With CohesiveFT, the EST was able to deploy IBM Cognos with VNS3 software defined networking (SDN) to securely connect and encrypt all data in motion.
The easy to provision solution from CohesiveFT allowed the EST to organize and visualize 20 years of information, or nearly 250 million data points relating to 25 million domestic properties.

Will Rivers, the Housing Data Manager for the Energy Saving Trust wrote, “The services we provide should support initiatives such as the Green Deal and make it possible to achieve energy efficiency targets faster and at less cost.”
