utilities and smart energy

utilities and smart energy summary...

In the UK, Government projections show that without new capacity generation, supply will not meet demand by2016, whilst at the same time billions of pounds are wasted on energy that never reaches a single light bulb.

Climate change, rising energy prices and technology advances are all forces that have been reshaping the collectivemind-set of consumers, turning many from "passive ratepayers" to highly informed, environmentally consciouscustomers who want a role in using power. And now, with the emergence of the technologies that make smartgrids possible, companies can provide their customers with the information and control they need to actuallychange their behaviour patterns and reduce usage and costs that show up on the utility bill.

ersg are providing subject matter experts to the Smart Energy/Utilities arena and are therefore assisting companiesin the way they transform the electricity and gas that is generated, transmitted, distributed and managed. Insteadof meter readers making rounds on a monthly cycle, a smart meter system takes an instrumented approach,automatically collecting and transporting the reads at regular intervals or on demand. By using digital sensors,advanced communications networks and analytics, utilities can understand demand in near realtime.
