    I've heard that imeasure will shortly start charging and so I'm looking for an alternative. I would be happy to keep using imeasure if only it had not lost several useful features during a software update a year or so ago.
    So...I'm looking for a web based thing, or a decent spreadsheet that will let me record my gas and electricity usage weekly if not more often. It will then display lovely graphs of my usage and will probably chart them against the weather and give me an idea of whether or not I'm managing to reduce my usage over the months and years. Imeasure doesn't do a bad job but as I can find nothing on their website to say how much they are going to start charging I'm unwilling to commit to an openended financial pit!
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    How are you collecting your energy data at the moment?
    I log mine to a Raspberry Pi and keep a simple text file of daily readings and local temperatures.
    The larger, more detailed data from the RPi I put into a spreadsheet once a week and can chart what I like from it.
    Really a matter of what you want to achieve and how much accuracy you want in it.

    Thanks Seret! How did you find that out? I can't see anything on the iMeasure or Pilio websites that says that.
    Steamy - keeping a spreadsheet would be grand, but i do rather like the weather data that imeasure automagically incorporates into my data. If I can find a source of degree day data then I'll be a happy bunny.

    Or you can download from a local Weather Underground site (where are you in the country).
    The Met Office has loads of local data too.

    To be perfectly honest, Degree Days are not that useful really, they are only good for a first approximation.
