Industry leading AI-Powered energy analytics firm Grid4C will deliver
predictive insights at the grid edge with real-time decisions within
Landis+Gyr’s smart meters to meet industry’s next generation use cases
AUSTIN, Texas & SYDNEY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Award winning AI-powered energy analytics company Grid4C has
partnered with Landis+Gyr, a leading global provider of energy
management solutions, to embed its predictive analytics software
solutions within smart meters at the edge of the electric grid to solve
the industry’s next generation use cases in real-time.
The joint effort builds upon an existing and successful partnership to
deliver AI-powered energy analytics for energy providers in Australia,
New Zealand and Hong Kong, and expands Landis+Gyr’s Grid Edge portfolio
with its “Advanced Application Platform” (AAP) communications modules
within its electricity smart meters.
AI Grid Edge solutions will provide utilities with granular real time
predictions and actionable insights for their operations and
customer-facing applications. This core technology drives applications
ranging from granular load forecasting and distributed energy resources
optimization, to home energy management at the appliance level, and the
prediction, detection, and diagnostics of faults for grid assets and
home appliances, in order to improve operational planning, reduce peak
demand, increase energy savings, deliver new revenue streams, and
increase customer engagement.
These capabilities and alerts will be delivered in real-time without the
need to pull the smart meter reads all the way up to the MDM head-end
through the AMI network.
“Landis+Gyr is not only a market leader but an innovator in helping
utilities maximize the benefits of smart meter investments, and we are
honored to partner with them,” said Dr. Noa Ruschin-Rimini, Grid4C
founder and CEO. “By embedding the most advanced machine learning
insights directly into their smart meters, we can help plan and optimize
distributed energy resources in real time at the edge of the grid,
prevent faults both on the grid side and on the consumers side, and help
consumers manage their energy better. This will provide a significant
edge to Landis+Gyr’s customers.”
“The value we can deliver from leveraging Grid4C’s industry leading AI
solutions together with our smart meter data in real-time is a
differentiator for Landis+Gyr,” stated Rodney Chaplin, General Manager
