To maintain competitive advantage, 
Energy companies must leverage IoT 
analytics to fully exploit technologies 
at the edge of the grid

The Energy landscape is reshaping: new microgrids, storage and renewable sources of energy are creating inverse energy flows while new consumers, including electric cars, are changing the overall consumption typology, and thus stress across the grid. Energy companies are finding optimizing operations, maintaining assets and mitigating threats more challenging than ever before.

To thrive in this new environment, participants in the Energy ecosystem -from Energy generation, transmission and distribution companies to utility, industrial and building management companies- must fully leverage distributed energy resources and other participatory technologies at the edge of the grid. Yet few IoT analytics solutions reveal the timely and meaningful business insights they need.

Adaptix was specifically developed to meet the needs of participants in the new Energy ecosystem. Its sophisticated data analytics instantly captures, analyses and interpret critical data from the edge of the smart grid.

01

DYNAMIC GRID OPTIMIZATION

Adaptix allows grid operators to leverage smart meters to improve service quality and save as much as 30% in operational cost with CAPEX investments as little as $0.

The grid is becoming increasingly unpredictable and volatile, with energy loss rising. Grid operators need to make regular and significant investments in new assets to maintain and improve the quality of their services. With little or no field information to hand, they are forced to rely solely on their intuition. This means investments are far from optimal and don’t meet the demands of new regulations that require quantitative justification.

Adaptix constantly analyses data from smart meters installed at the consumer level to provide grid operators with end-to-end and up-to-date visibility into the flows on the upper layers and the corresponding stress on the distribution layers of the grid. Its data driven insights help them make and justify the investments and reconfigurations needed to ensure optimal grid operation. Operators are able to schedule interventions that ensure short and long term sustainability while reducing underlying cost and energy losses by up to 30% each.

02

ASSET MANAGEMENT

Adaptix has been shown to reduce maintenance costs by 20% while cutting the number of outages by 95%.

Microgrids and renewable energy sources mean energy now flows upstream as well as downstream. This demands greater flexibility across the grid, raising the importance of substations’ switchgear and transformers. At the same time, grid operators need to ensure their aging assets are kept in optimal condition to prevent failures – particularly during the winter when they’re running at capacity.

Adaptix’s self-learning algorithms monitor assets at substation level. Adaptix uniquely analyses and correlates virtually all available data – pressure, temperature, levels and acoustic sensors – on the transformer in combination with load data from smart meters and data on environmental conditions. Underlying patterns are identified and any anomalies revealed. Powerful multi-scenario prediction tools within Adaptix help the engineer assess all available scenarios and select the optimal solution.

03

REAL-TIME LOAD BALANCING

Adaptix predicts loads and/or supply with more than 95% accuracy in the short, mid and long term.

Growing consumption and stress on the grid along with new sources of energy mean balancing demand with supply is becoming increasingly complex in the different levels of the grid. And while third party demand response aggregators increase service flexibility to customers of all sectors, they are making that balance even more difficult to achieve. Accurate and timely insights from demand load management and supply side resources are critical.

Adaptix provides real-time forecasts on energy needs and distribution. It allows power generators, utilities and industrial plants to take a smarter, data-driven approach towards load balancing on the increasingly complex grid. They can balance electricity supply and demand at a more granular level right across the electricity network: from transmission to distribution at a regional, district and even building level. Carbon footprints are lowered. Costs are saved. Customer perception and shareholder value are improved.

04

ENERGY PRICING

Adaptix keeps energy cost to a minimum by reliably anticipating energy price peaks where prices could rise to 5x their norm.

Energy markets have incorporated a significantly more volatile and dynamic pricing component in response to today’s new energy market topology. Utilities and industrial plants able to adapt to this new pricing model will be able to make significant savings.

Adaptix’s multi-scenario predictive analytics tools allow energy managers in utilities and industrial plants – along with managers in energy trading departments – to consider alternative market forecasts and prognosis with different degrees of possibility. The knowledge gained helps them install a long term energy procurement strategy, anticipate peaks in the price of electricity, reduce their overall costs, manage their energy stocks effectively and improve their operational workflow.

05

BUILDING ENERGY MANAGEMENT

With Adaptix, one buildings management engineer can monitor up to 100,000 buildings, automatically detecting anomalies when they occur with 99% accuracy.

Today’s energy managers detect anomalies such as overcharges and irregularities manually, from visualisations of energy usage curves. High quality services require approximately one engineer for every ten buildings managed – a model that is impossible to scale to tomorrow’s millions of smart meters. Energy managers able to exploit the automation offered by smart meters will improve buildings management efficiency.

Adaptix automates key aspects of building energy management, extracting building intelligence from regular electricity, water and gas meters to modern as well as highly equipped smart buildings with their advanced building meter and sensors setups. Energy managers can exponentially scale the number of buildings monitored simultaneously while raising comfort levels for occupants. Furthermore, Adaptix’s real-time forecast, anomaly detection and pattern analysis detect irregularities within milliseconds so managers can alert their clients before overcharges and fatal equipment failures impact. Costs and carbon footprints are lowered while services are improved – without the need for further investment in sensor equipment.

END CUSTOMER ANALYTICS

Adaptix helps improve green energy mixture by 50% and reduce total energy consumption up to 20%, enhance client loyalty by 50% and monetise energy data – with $0 investment.

Today’s consumers expect utilities to deliver personalized services: advice on maximising energy efficiency, predictive maintenance and more. While data from residential smart meters provides insight on energy consumption and status of meters needed for these services, it also reveals a great deal about the household. Utilities could fully exploit this information, opening up new multi-sided business models with third parties that will allow them to offer innovative new services to their clients.

Adaptix’s tools enhance utilities’ customer service portfolios, helping households maximise energy efficiency while automatically detecting consumption anomalies and equipment failures. By examining residential end-user consumption, Adaptix helps utilities profile user habits, characterize their sources of consumption and forecast behavioural changes. This insight could be leveraged for internal marketing studies or for creating or improving customer-oriented services. These services may help customers achieve their energy objectives in the smart home – or even reach beyond energy related applications.

LOREM IPSUM

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
