From our experience with clients, the hardest part of progressing into an Embedded Network or Microgrid is finding the right partner. A partner you can trust, that has a proven solution, that knows the industry, but doesn’t provide the whole suite of services and infrastructure. They should be able to help manage your direction while you learn and grow, help you make decisions and look after your best interests.
That’s what ENM Solutions provides. Our suite of Professional Services, tailored to multi-tenanted buildings across the National Electricity Market, can help with every step of your future or existing Embedded Network and Microgrid. Our services include Consultancy, Project Management and ‘Embedded Network Manager’ Services.
Regardless of your role or position in developing the future of an electricity grid, we have a tailored solution to help.
An Embedded Network is a privately owned and operated electricity network confined within a multi-tenant development. Customers’ consumption is consolidated to a single connection point, called the Parent Meter, which connects directly to the National Electricity Market (NEM) and is used to purchase all electricity. The electricity is then ‘on-sold’ to each of the customers at the site based on their measured consumption. A person who engages in the activity of owning, controlling or operating an Embedded Network is known as the Exempt Embedded Network Service Provider (EENSP).
When managed correctly, an Embedded Network can create financial benefits that can be utilised at the development; for example, to reduce customer electricity rates (better than those in the NEM) or invest in renewable initiatives. Unfortunately, these benefits do not always flow to the customer and sometimes a monopoly forms where a customer has no choice but to purchase electricity from the EENSP.
With the increased awareness of cost, reliability and carbon footprint, the importance of renewable generation is expected to play an important role in the establishment of the electricity landscape. Many organisations are branching out and considering their futures and how they move forwards. The importance of finding the right partner that supports your best interest will be paramount. Our specialists in the industry bring expertise, experience and in-depth knowledge.

Data is going to be one of the most important aspects of the electricity industry.
The key to successfully on-selling all utilities is the accurate and timely measurement of consumption.
Therefore, the meter type, the Meter Provider and the Meter Data Provider will all be crucial to the integrity and reliability of invoices supplied to customers. This is the case across the board for all on-selling activities, including: Electrical Embedded Network, Circulating Hot Water System, Cold Water recovery and Gas Embedded Network.
Regardless of whether you require manual meter reading or the provision of a live data feed, we can help you find what you’re looking for.
Manual Meter Reading and Services
ENM Solutions’ team of technicians in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane provide manual meter reading services on a monthly and quarterly basis. We manually read thousands of meters each month for all utilities – including Electricity, Hot Water, Cold Water, and Gas.
