With the rapidly increasing volumes of data available in the utility landscape, 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 to zero interruption. Analytics is not new to the industry, as it has always been employed to improve grid operations. However, an increasing volume of data is becoming available from new data sources such as IoT devices in the field, asset management, AMI/smart meters, and geographical information systems.
These new data sources enable the development of analytics models based on statistics, machine learning and big data solutions to assist utilities to make decisions in a complex environment. Utility analytics touches every link of the utility value chain, including optimal management of primary fuel and other resources, control of energy flows, regulating the grid, effective work flow, maintenance management, losses management, and theft/fraud identification.
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.
