Fluvius (Belgian energy provider) integration

Hi everyone,
I am living in Belgium and the local energy supplier company (https://www.fluvius.be/) provides a web portal to check your consumptions for electricity and gas (if you have digital meters).
they also seem to allow third parties to integrate (see this app from local energy provider Engie https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/engie-belgië/id1562119194) and withdraw:

  • consumption history at different granularity ( daily, hourly, 15 min)
  • consumption peaks

which makes me think that Fluvius has indeed an API available (Ontsluiten van verbruiksdata via API | Fluvius).
What I cannot figure out is if this is available to the general public or only if you are a company (Engie) and would like to provide services to your customers.

I have found also another company that integrates with Fluvius (https://www.energyid.eu) but their services are exaclty what I would like to achieve with Home Assistant (and not depend on other’s shady ML analysis).

Has anyone info on this provider?

Hey Nick,

Have a look at this:

I didn’t try it myself yet, and it requires some little extra hardware. It basically just reads the smart meter on the P1 port, and emits that on a TCP/IP server or UART.
Also search for “P1 meter USB cable” on google, also on this forum are plenty of stuff to find:

Note: You even bypass the the delayed (and shady?) site of fluvius.

Good luck,
And … I am interested in your findings.

Interesting. However, for me this looks like a bit too much effort to read out simple values.
Personally, I am not interested in real time read outs on the P1 port. (I will use SMA home manager)
But It would be nice to have the meters value as well as a reference/control.

Given this situation, implementing an existing API could be far more beneficial and easier to maintain.
I also use the Engine app, and sites such as mijnenergie.be also work with reading out the values from fluvius. So it must be possible, for sure.

indeed reading from P1 port would be feasible but the meter is in the building technical room (shared with other apartments) and, what is worse, it’s behind a sealed panel as it’s maintained by the condominium :frowning:
For electricity I have installed a Shelly EM to read it at the input but the gas counter cannot be monitored. (I currently made a little shortcut on iphone to recognize the digits and call a service on home-assistant but it’s not ideal).

I have contacted Fluvius and here is the answer (translated):

Thank you for your report.

We do not yet offer an API for individuals. This is also currently not planned for the future.

Kind regards,

Perhaps if other interested people write them, they might reconsider.

If there is wifi in the technical room you can use the P1 Meter from Homewizard.
