Premium is an upgrade for records. This means that you upgrade a specific record within your account rather than your account as a whole. For example, you can have one Premium record in your account and two free records (1).
(1) Up to two free records per user
How can I activate EnergyID Premium?
Private users can activate EnergyID Premium by joining an EnergyID group. Business users can choose a subscription and start their own group.
Activate Premium by joining a group
Several organizations and local governments offer their members and residents an EnergyID Premium upgrade, often in conjunction with additional services such as energy coaching, collective metering, group purchasing, and more.
By joining their EnergyID group, your record automatically qualifies for EnergyID Premium. Once approved, EnergyID Premium is activated on your record.
- You search for a relevant group in the Group Directory. To become a member, click on Join and choose the record you wish to upgrade.
- The group managers will review your membership request. If you meet the membership criteria, your request is approved.
- Premium will be activated on your record.
I cannot find a suitable group to apply for a Premium upgrade
In that case, we must unfortunately ask you to be patient. Along with organizations and Flemish cities and municipalities that are already active on EnergyID, we are looking at the possibility to offer you a Premium upgrade. If your municipality or employer is not yet active on EnergyID, then we kindly ask you to be our ambassador and promote our tool to them.
As a private person, can I buy a Premium subscription myself?
It is currently not possible to buy a Premium subscription as a private user. This may change in the future, but at this stage we consciously choose to reach our end user - that is, you - through organizations and local governments.
As a business user or organization, where can I find the prices, and how do I start a group?
Premium subscription prices will be published during March. You will also be able to start your own group and assign Premium or Premium HR licenses to the records in your group. A group itself also creates great opportunities to get started as a community.
Documentation on how groups work will also follow during March.
Can I join multiple groups offering Premium?
Yes, you can join multiple EnergyID groups. Each approved membership entitles the registered record to be upgraded to EnergyID Premium.
Can I switch groups and keep my Premium subscription?
Yes, by first registering your record with the new group, you can subsequently unregister your record with the old group without losing the right to a Premium upgrade.
What if I terminate my membership in a group?
Upon termination of your membership, your record will also be deregistered from the group and you will no longer be entitled to a Premium upgrade.
When downgrading your record, only the recent 10 meters and 2 connected apps remain active, while the other meters and integrations are closed or disabled. You can reactivate them after removing other meters and integrations or by upgrading again to a paid subscription.
