Utilities and Aggregators
Simple and intuitive energy in your hands.
S5 Portfolio Analytics
S5 Portfolio Analytics solution comprises in a powerful platform that collects, processes and analyses vast amounts of energy-related data from smart meters to allow energy utilities to gain insights on the performance of their clients, identify outliers and abnormal events towards triggering appropriate alerts, while offering them the capability to optimize their billing strategies based on the comprehensive analysis of demand profiles at different spatio-temporal granularity.
Main Service Features
Monitoring and analysis of demand profiles
Annual, monthly, daily and 15-minute overviews of demand profiles and associated energy costs, based on smart meter readings.
Generation of custom reports for demand profile analysis of specific clusters of consumers, considering a variety of spatial, temporal and client-related criteria.
Billing strategy formulation
Execution of what-if scenarios over selected consumer clusters to optimize billing and adjust it to their demand profiles.
Definition of appropriate billing strategic ad-hoc to avoid critical imbalances and relevant charges
Main App Features
Metering data dashboard with different views and visualization of a variety of KPIs referring to energy demand, peak demand, energy costs, energy savings
Portfolio grouping and creation of meaningful clusters for performance analysis and demand profile comparisons
Comparative analytics on a variety of KPIs at different spatio-temporal granularity
Notifications and alerts on the basis of pre-defined or custom rules (regarding energy consumption and associated thresholds) set by the utility
Individual analytics on energy consumption, peak load and energy costs (reaching even at 15-minute level), patterns and outliers detection and individual performance comparisons with historical data from previous years
Possibility to extend functionality for improving demand forecasting
Benefits for the Utility
Better understanding and management of portfolio performance and aggregated demand profiles
Formulation of more effective and profitable billing strategies
Avoidance of imbalance charges due to forecasting errors
Compliance with energy efficiency obligations for utilities at national level and realization of anticipated energy savings
S5 Flexibility Analytics
The S5 Flexibility Analytics solution enables the multidimensional analysis, correlation and efficient management of demand flexibility profiles, considering key flexibility aspects such as capacity and response capabilities. It allows for the dynamic and spatio-temporal segmentation, classification and clustering of different sources of flexibility for the selection of appropriate aggregated Virtual Power Plants to provide specific optimization functions (considering flexibility profiles and their suitability to provide different electricity grid services, e.g. balancing, frequency response or voltage regulation).
Main Service Features
Monitoring and analysis of flexibility profiles
referring to a variety of flexibility sources (demand, generation, storage, EVs).
Flexibility profiles segmentation and clustering
formulation of optimal flexibility dispatch strategies.
Monitoring and devising
of flexibility dispatch strategies on the fly.
Main App Features
Unique algorithmic framework for the extraction of flexibility profiles out of energy metering data streams
Continuous real-time flexibility monitoring and short-term forecasting
Dynamic clustering and aggregation of flexibility profiles into Virtual Power Plants on the basis of a variety of parameters such as location, time, flexibility capacity, response time, contract arrangement
Signal dispatching for implicit and/ or explicit control strategies implementation (manual control vs automation)
Break-down high-level flexibility signals to individual flexibility dispatch commands at the level of prosumer or even device
Interfaces for communication and interconnection to network operators’ systems for flexibility signals exchange
Continuous monitoring of flexibility strategies and on the fly devising in case of overrides
Utilization of blockchain technology for objective and transparent settlement and remuneration of flexibility activation events
Benefits for the Aggregator
Optimized flexibility bidding on the basis of accurate flexibility forecasts
Revenue and Profitability increase through the provision of services to network operators
Gaining access to the unleashed flexibility potential of the demand side and opening of new opportunities for revenue increase in energy markets through the utilization of low-OPEX and highly competitive flexibility resources
Opportunities for expanding their EaaS offerings with the inclusion of energy efficiency and smart home services towards small and medium-sized energy consumers
Optimized risk hedging through continuous monitoring and on-the-fly strategy devising
