Our Client & Their Goals
Our Client, a major utility with operations in the electric power sector, was deploying a network of “smart meters”, electricity meters that could transmit data over a digital network. Though these smart meters would primarily be used to monitor customers’ energy usage in order to bill them accurately, our Client recognised that they could also provide valuable data.
Our Client was interested in developing applications that would fully realise the potential of this data source, but they needed expert guidance to evaluate the wide range of possible applications. They asked us to determine what kinds of applications could be developed using data management, and what new insights could be derived by analysing their smart meter data.
