App Modernisation Services for Good Energy
About Good Energy
Good Energy Group is a British energy company based in Wiltshire that generates and purchases renewable electricity. This green energy is supplied to homes and businesses throughout the UK. Its purpose is to help homes and businesses be part of a sustainable solution to climate change.
Transparity was brought in for the implementation of a web-based Business Portal for Good Energy. This portal would allow Business Customers to gain access to their accounts and to self-manage those accounts. The portal exposes a collection of business applications, each of which will apply to a subset of the business customers. The main goal of the platform is to show businesses how the energy generated by local generators is supplied to them throughout the day.
A legacy application called Selectricity existed that allowed consumers to match their energy usage against energy generators, using data provided by both the consumers and generators. A new application to replace it was required because the previous version of this application was a third-party system that was no longer suitable for use and so Good Energy decided to replace it with a custom system of their own.
The new Selectricity application would be the first Application being deployed within the business portal to serve Good Energy’s Business customers.
With the view to upgrade the technology, the new application would be developed for deployment on Azure using serverless technologies. The deployment would be designed and developed by Transparity and supported in-house by the Good Energy team
The resulting system provides the framework for Good Energy to host a number of services for Half-Hourly business customers, and the fully implemented Selectricity service for customers to be able to see and control exactly which suppliers their energy is coming from.
