The energy industry’s first Big Data analytics and predictive control platform is now open for third-party application developers.
With a predictive model of the grid, utilities can shift loads in real time and improve yields for demand management by more than 30 percent.
We use the petabytes of data generated by smart meters to create a forward-looking model of the grid, similar to how supercomputers predict the weather.
Our Energy Data Platform is accessed through public or private cloud services, ensuring high security and privacy while reducing operational and capital expenses.
By mining operational trends and consumption patterns, AutoGrid’s Energy Data Platform can forecast demand days, minutes or even seconds in advance. With our tools, data replaces emergency capacity.
AutoGrid delivers services over the cloud, reducing the cost of demand management systems by 90 percent. AutoGrid is also 100-percent hardware neutral: high capital and operational costs are no longer a barrier.
With our software, ESCOs, demand response providers, electricity retailers and others can employ demand management tools 24/7/365. AutoGrid increases power “yields” by 30 percent or more.
High levels of security, rock-solid stability, compatibility with standards and a rapid ROI mean that manufacturers and real estate managers can follow through with plans to adopt energy efficiency strategies.
September 23, 2014 Throughout history, we’ve equated energy with the consumption of natural resources such as oil, natural gas or coal. In the coming decades we will start to think of data and software as a source of energy. What do I mean by that? Software won’t generate electrons, but it will let us leverage […]
