Although we launched Cuby fairly recently, we are continuously looking and investigating how we can improve Cuby. By maintaining frequent dialogue with our clients, we gain many insights that we want to act on quickly. Our developers have recently delivered some new features.
The great added value of Cuby is that it is possible to calculate the energy transition costs for streets, neighborhoods or real estate portfolios from individual objects. We do not lose sight of individual differences.
Users will soon be able to add the individual situation of the object themselves by means of new input fields. In this way, individual energy consumption can be compared with the generic data that Cuby works with, or measures that have already been taken – but are not yet known in the public databases, such as floor, wall or roof insulation – can be entered. Based on the individually supplemented information, Cuby can very accurately calculate the costs of the transition options.
It is now also possible to select the desired energy label yourself too, so that Cuby can show the associated energy-saving measures and costs. In this way it can be assessed which measures are needed to achieve that label and what the associated costs and benefits are.
Soon you will be able to map buildings with multiple uses with Cuby. Owners of homes located above shops or offices have different needs and wishes than, for example, the shop owner himself and their energy consumption is also different, too. For shops, offices or homes, other calculations are also required to arrive at the correct energy transition costs. Luckily, with the addition of the uses, Cuby is able to calculate the energy transition costs of buildings with multiple uses. This has great advantages for apartment buildings that are often located above offices or shops.
We are also developing a filter for owner-occupied and rental homes so that municipalities can orientate themselves in a targeted manner and adjust their plans accordingly.
New features that we are currently working on, but which are not yet under development, are results based on savings (what are the exact savings with a specific sustainability improvement) and the representation of the capacity of the energy network.
All generic features that we develop will be automatically added to the existing licenses of our clients so that they always work with all the latest updates. We can also develop specific, customer made features for our clients.
