Demonstrating the appetite for smarter energy solutions, Open Energi’s customer base has more than doubled to 50 organizations in the past 18 months. As a result of its investment in Hortonworks Connected Data Platform, Open Energi has been able to integrate a very wide variety of datasets, including sensor data, historical weather data and wholesale electricity prices, without spending a large amount of time on development and integration work. By bringing the data together, the commercial team is able to clearly evaluate the
potential value of future service offerings Open Energi may bring to market.
Using HDP, Open Energi is helping organizations gain valuable insights by analyzing real-time information based on data streamed from over 3,000 electricity consuming assets and meters around the UK. It does so by collecting, storing and analyzing sensor data more efficiently and at a far greater scale than previously possible with its bespoke approach. Open Energi has been able to achieve significant cost reductions, transparency for data governance, and improved processes.
