There is a lot of money to be found both above and below the ground with smart meter data analytics – and the treasure hunt has only just begun.
Common to all of them is that digitalisation creates a level of transparency that represents a huge optimisation potential for utilities on both a short-term and long-term basis. Kamstrup’s analytics tool, Heat Intelligence, helps you turn that potential into actual savings.
Imagine the savings that can be achieved by efficiently detecting leakages and unexpected heat loss or targeting and improving the 5% of end users that have the highest return temperatures – all based on data from all meters in the network.
This includes better utilisation of the existing capacity and predictive maintenance, so utilities can potentially avoid or defer some of the heavy investments in this area. Also, being able to compare the actual network load and capacity to its design criteria will reveal if they actually match in terms of e.g. coincidence factor and pipe dimensions. In this way, you can significantly optimise your asset management and extend the lifetime of your infrastructure.
Only the beginning
"With its ability to generate data-based simulations of all kinds of future scenarios, Heat Intelligence effectively enables you to see the effect and value of your decisions before you make them."
