SEEC (Saudi Efficiency Center)
Saudi Energy Efficiency Center, or simply SEEC, is a government agency in Saudi Arabia whose purpose is to help reduce the energy consumption of extensive facilities.
Saudi Energy Efficiency Center, or simply SEEC, is a government agency in Saudi Arabia whose purpose is to help reduce the energy consumption of extensive facilities. Think of factories, power plants, or oil rigs. In other words, these are critical infrastructure facilities that consume a lot of energy.
The SEEC envisioned a platform that would perform two major functions; collecting data of the facilities’ energy consumption and the mandated education and certification of the user and the facility. The platform would then allow government officials to check that users and facilities are compliant with the law, as well as facility owners being able to keep on top of the administration.
We can summarize the reasons why certificates are mandatory in two main factors:
- Personnel completing e-learning courses to enable energy efficiency improvements
- Getting compliant with energy efficiency certificates like ISO 500001
All documentation is then submitted by a facility and is examined by a SEEC admin, who will then communicate whether it has been approved or rejected.
How to Start?
We usually start with many questions for our clients. It can be similar to this: What are the project goals? Who are the end-users? What problems do you have? How do you see this project solving them? It is more common than not to find a lack of clarity before things are written down.
After we have a good understanding of the solution, we can start wireframing and designing the user stories required for the project.
The Discovery Phase
In the discovery phase, we discussed SEEC’s needs and aspirations for the project. From this, we identified that there would be a need for four different end-users, all with distinct privileges and attributes. That discovery immediately informed us that four different dashboards would be required, ranging from facility owners who could create a new facility profile, to users who can only administrate the tasks given.
An efficient and well-designed energy consumption dashboard connected to the APIs of energy providers can provide real-time insights into energy usage patterns, identify areas for improvement, and enable better decision-making for users. The new platform can help property managers to track energy consumption, optimize energy usage, and avoid costly demand charges during peak hours.
