Smart meters are now a common piece of infrastructure in the modern utility environment. As their frequency grows so does the opportunity to gain better insights of how the grid operates. Gridcure has been working with smart grid data and understands the unique attributes utility data exhibits during the cycles of day and night, along with seasonal shifts month-over-month and year-over-year.
Smart meters are primarily used for automated billing but utilities are recognizing value of monitoring usage trends and applying it to other parts of their business. For instance being able to accurately predict peak demand, identify spikes and irregular usage, preventing non-technical losses all the way to improving customer outreach programs.
GridCure focuses on improving their algorithms to provide the necessary metrics to assist in improving grid health and offering insights to grid managers, giving them the ability to make smarter decisions.
