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 heat meter data into actionable insights. Kamstrup’s analytics platform for heat utilities provides insights and a new transparency turning your distribution network into a smart district heating system.
With this new heat intelligence, 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.
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.
Heat Intelligence combines facts about your distribution network (pipe length, dimension, insulation, etc.) with data directly from your smart meters - giving you not just a smart but an intelligent district heating system. The added knowledge of your distribution network 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.
Heat Intelligence is automatically updated and recalculated daily with the latest data from your distribution network. The platform is web-based.
