OpenEnergyMonitor - Lincoln Binns

“We chose the E-case B since we wanted a robust and wall-mountable enclosure which was made to a high quality in the UK and easily recyclable. Using an extruded case housing like the E-case B with custom end-plate fascia allowed us to easily create a tidy enclosure without the cost and commitment of going down the fully custom injection moulding route.”

“At the time when we were considering the options we did some research into the embodied energy of various enclosure materials. We found that although aluminium has a slightly higher embodied energy initally than plastic this is negated in favour of aluminium since aluminium can easily be recycled using a small amount of energy while plastic cannot as easily. Recycled aluminium takes 30% less energy than ABS plastic to produce.”
