About Fat Spaniel Technologies


Worldwide demand for renewable energy is growing exponentially due to concerns about climate change, energy supply security and rising costs of fossil fuels. As solar electric, solar water heating, wind and other renewable energy sources become viable energy alternatives, there is a critical need to ensure that these systems can be remotely monitored, managed and controlled – over the Internet.

Founded in 2003, Fat Spaniel Technologies is the market leader in providing critical monitoring and reporting services for the renewable energy industry. Our services for PPA service providers, integrators, utilities, OEMs and system installers allow our partners to optimize energy output, cut the cost of operations and maintenance, reduce risk and increase project ROI (return on investment) for renewable energy systems.

In 2008, Fat Spaniel introduced Insight Platform, the world’s first open intelligence platform for building, sharing and running energy data applications. Insight Platform opens up Fat Spaniel’s market-leading technology to help our partners, customers and the developer community extend in-house monitoring systems, explore new energy management capabilities, and enjoy open integration across multiple vendors, hardware types, and distributed locations. Insight Platform harnesses the innovation and creativity of an entire ecosystem of partners, not just a single player.

For our partners, Fat Spaniel Insight Manager™ provides a web portal for managing portfolios of multiple sites, including capabilities such as: detecting inverter faults, generating alerts, monitoring actual performance vs. expected results, capturing service information, downloading reports, and much more.
