With the rapidly increasing volumes of data available in the business landscape today, specialised skills and techniques are essential to mine and extract the inherent value for actionable insight.
Data analytics transforms utilities. Energy and utility companies are under constant pressure to provide high-quality services with minimal interruptions and failures 24/7. Analytics is not new to the industry, as it has always been employed to improve grid operations. However, an increasing amount of data is coming in via new data sources such as IoT devices in the field, AMI and smart meters, asset management and geographical information systems.
These new data sources allow one to develop analytics models based on statistics, machine learning and big data solutions to assist utilities to make numerous complex decisions each day in order to manage and effectively use their resources, control energy flows, regulate the grid, optimise work, and avoid costly mistakes.
Our techniques minimise the traditional gaps between modeller, client and end-user to simplify complex problems and solve operational challenges in the utility, energy regulator, telecommunication and retail environments.
We’ve been at the forefront of utility analytics since the late 1990s, and the African leaders in the forecasting of electricity demand for over two decades.
Our specialist team comprises highly experienced and qualified statisticians, engineers, mathematicians and IT professionals who are passionate about scientific, statistical and technological advancements to support customer decision-making.
We have a track record in the industry in a broad range of areas.
