Heat Intelligence

Heat Analytics you can act on

 

 

Unlock the Black Box of your distribution network

The value of your smart meter data goes far beyond accurate billing. The challenge so far has been to utilise its full potential, but with the right tools, you can do just that and transform your meter data into actionable insights.
Kamstrup’s analytics platform for heat utilities provides insights and a new transparency to the distribution network. 
 
With these, you can effectively go from imagining “What if” to knowing “How to”.
Your meter data is automatically combined with GIS information on your distribution network to give you a full overview of what is going on in your distribution network. 

Make it Your District

  • Locate your heat loss
  • Document your quality of delivery
  • Monitor your load and capacity

  • Identify what stresses your network

Turning raw data into value and overview

Heat Intelligence offers an unparalleled overview of your district with detailed information on inlet temperature, outlet temperature and temperature deviations. You can follow the development closely, target your efforts and act as soon as outliers appear in your network.

Map your heat loss Map your heat loss

Continuous monitoring enables you to spot negative trends or developments so that you can react faster. You simply define your own limits for temperature deviations based on what is relevant for you. The result is shown on the map, and you can act accordingly. If the measured temperature is lower than expected, the issue could be a defect service pipe or poor pipe insulation. If higher, it could be caused by a leakage or a bypass.
 

Document your quality of delivery Document your quality of delivery

You are able to see exactly how heat moves through your distribution network all the way to the end users. This means that you can document precisely what you have delivered at all times. You are also able to evaluate your temperature optimisation based on a visualisation of dynamically calculated facts rather than on a static model.

Monitor your load and capacity Monitor your load and capacity

By linking energy measurements with detailed pipe characteristics, Heat Intelligence gives you a picture of the load throughout your network. You get insight into the match between theoretic
planning and reality, enabling you to validate your design rules. This allows you to maximise utilisation of your capacity and target investments in network maintenance by e.g. estimating pipe lifetimes based on their loads and conditions rather than just their age.
 

Identify network stress Identify network stress

You can identify the buildings or consumers who put the most strain on your network by zooming in on specific buildings and pipe sections. This enables you to uncover the root cause of the problem, e.g. the heat installation or consumer behaviour. And that is your basis for providing your customers with targeted advice and guidance – to the benefit of their heating bills and your network performance.
 

When you know what happens under ground

Heat Intelligence combines facts about your distribution network (pipe length, dimension, insulation, etc.) with data directly from your smart meters.
This gives you a whole new level of transparency – without having to invest in additional sensors in the field.

Create virtual meters

Using measurements from all end points in your distribution network, Heat Intelligence can calculate the temperature and flow even when no meter is installed.

The Heat Intelligence calculates exactly how heat travels in your infrastructure and what this means for your heat supply. Visualised on an intuitive map of your supply area, this gives you an understanding of the hydro dynamics in your distribution network.
When you know what happens underground, you are able to better target your efforts and resources.
 

Live and updated daily

Heat Intelligence is automatically updated and recalculated daily with the latest data from your distribution network. The platform is web-based.
