AutoGrid’s Energy Data Platform
AutoGrid transforms data into the cleanest, cheapest source of power. The company’s Energy Data Platform (EDP) leverages petabytes of data generated by smart meters and other equipment to let utilities, communities and individuals fine-tune power consumption and costs. EDP can forecast electrical consumption at up to a million end-points every ten minutes: This unprecedented stream of real-time information combined with cloud-based software applications for EDP created by AutoGrid and third-party developers work in concert to reduce emissions, shave peak power, integrate a larger share of renewables into the grid, reduce outages, and maximize the use and value of power and power generating assets.
Such utilities as E.ON, Oklahoma Gas & Electric, Austin Energy, and City of Palo Alto Utilities have announced the use of AutoGrid’s big data analytics technology to improve the reliability and productivity of their operations. AutoGrid has also partnered with several world-leading organizations, such as NTT DATA, Schneider Electric, and Silver Spring Networks, to expand its market reach around the world.
