Digital Solutions delivers operational efficiency

Using data and powerful technology to deliver on cost-savings strategies, asset management and improved system performance.

Our Digital Solutions offering solves problems for utilities to improve grid efficiency and asset performance

Reduce the cost of distribution network inefficiency

Avoid losses due to voltage drop or distribution transformer under-loading. Use demand response or DER integration to reduce voltage drop, increase power factor, or reduce net load. 

Avoid wholesale energy costs

Shift aggregate peak from peak demand windows to lower cost times through conservation voltage reduction, demand response, or DER integration. 

Avoid or defer capital expenses for distribution network upgrades to meet peak demand

Flatten peak aggregate demand on individual distribution transformers through demand response and DER integration.

Minimize the need for asset replacement due to reduced lifetime from transformer overloading

Reduce peak demand on overloaded distribution transformers through demand response and DER integration.

Stronger asset management

We work collaboratively with customers to establish a set of core data analytics that grant deeper insight into the  state of their grid assets. Using this information, utilities and their investors can improve the performance of their assets, produce more accurate balance sheet financials and improve tariff negotiation. 

Start with Digital Transformation

Utility Digitalization is a required first step in our Digital Solutions offering. Installing SparkMeter's equipment and software solution enables robust data collection and detailed load management.

1. Install smart electricity meters

Install smart electricity meters at customer locations, on distribution transformers and fuses to start collecting raw grid data.

2. Create digital models and inventory records

Create digital models of distribution network assets in GIS and grid simulation software.

3. Identify performance improvement opportunities

Identify estimates of grid inefficiency or asset performance issues where costly capital expense projects would be needed.

Managed Services

SparkMeter can work with you to build customized solutions and programs to address macro-level business challenges identified by our grid management solution.
Engineering Analysis

SparkMeter’s Engineering Analysis includes CapEx planning, resource adequacy requirements and distribution network analysis. We use geospatial and power system network models to perform these analyses, and are also a starting point for broader utility digitalization efforts.

DER Programs

Non-wires alternatives and DERs like demand response and distributed storage have the potential to unlock energy cost savings and a CapEx-light approach to grid capacity through grid services. Using Koios Custom Analytics with data from smart meters and other grid assets, we partner with utilities to develop DER program parameters. As a DER management system (DERMS), our Koios Cloud Platform delivers grid services like peak demand reduction, load shifting, and asset performance optimization.
