Open Energi on the Business Value of Hortonworks Technical Expertise 

Open Energi is a UK clean tech company working with businesses to intelligently optimize their electricity demand and to deliver both revenue and cost savings. The company pioneers in its market in terms of services, real-time analytics, machine learning, and Internet of Things (IoT).

Through Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and DataFlow (HDF), Open Energi developed and maintains a single view of electricity consumption and other information to enable swift reactions to changing conditions on the grid and to identify methods of generating extra revenue from existing assets, to maximize energy savings, and to reduce CO2 emissions.

You can read the full case study here. Additional benefits and highlights of the study include:

  • Cost savings through 10-15% reduction in data transmission
  • Full data governance and transparency to share with the National Grid and its customers
  • Opportunity for line of business teams to contribute to building data flow rules and processes
  • Data output standardization across various endpoint devices

Open Energi’s single view wasn’t built overnight, however. In our new video below, Michael Bironneau, Technical Director at Open Energi, explains how the contributors Hortonworks employs have the in-depth knowledge and technical expertise needed to get a Big Data initiative off the ground.
