Utilities benefit from the powerful combination of Siemens expertise in the energy industry, cutting-edge data science, and analytics technology that provides immediate revenue recovery opportunities. Quickly identify multiple anomalies such as meter installation issues, water and gas leaks, low power factor, and theft with a completely automated business process designed for your revenue protection program and offers instant benefits and a fast return on investment.
Avoid financial risk of "lock in" - be adaptable for the unpredictable
Invest in a MDM that enables you to adapt to your changing business requirements along your journey. With productized support for all marketing leading AMI vendors, your investment is future proof and allows you to take advantage of the latest AMI technologies.
EnergyIP is AMI agnostic enabling customers to change AMI hardware while being in production with EnergyIP due to costs, regulations, and/or service. EnergyIP has many integration adapters and works with many customers that have two or more AMI systems. It is feature rich and has abundance of configuration options, also enabling accommodation of changing business requirements – low voltage network, support green use cases, and reduce IT expenditures.
AMI Adapters are two-way interfaces with the AMI data collection systems that sit in between the Head-End-Systems and other applications in EnergyIP. These adapters are HES specific. For example, for Sensus HES, we have a Sensus AMI Adapter.
SAP adapter is the integration package that implements the standardized interfaces between EnergyIP and SAP ISU. Supported by both Siemens and SAP, SAP adapter productizes the most commonly used web services and integration interfaces to dramatically reduce complexity and cost of the integration project between these two highly advanced platforms, minimizing cost of ownership and expediting time to market.
The DCC Adapter is an EnergyIP platform application targeted for use by United Kingdom electric and gas suppliers, and network operators. Its primary purpose is to simplify integration to utilities back office systems and hide the complexity of the messaging protocols from daily business operations.
Empowering customers with data
Today, customers want to be more engaged than ever before. Do you want to improve your customers' experience by providing more information to their energy usage, spending, and a wealth of data?
EnergyIP Energy Engage is a consumer engagement application that integrates with the utility’s customer portal, and provides the end consumer with accurate, real-time access to cost, usage, and environmental impact information, to be able to make better energy decisions. Energy Engage allows the consumer to see energy bill and usage-to-date, comparison to prior period, receive alerts when usage exceeds thresholds, and allows the utility to educate consumers and suggest ways to conserve energy. Consumers can proactively engage with tips, neighbors, and tools to increase their energy conservation.
Intelligent and cost-effective outage management
Are you looking for an intelligent solution for managing low outage events?
The EnergyIP Low Voltage Outage Management System (LVOMS) is designed to be used as a low-cost mini-OMS that fits well in a tight budget. While it does not provide features that a regular OMS provides, the LVOMS utilizes AMI events and data to provide users with intuitive, map-based visual information to show power outage status at a glance. These capabilities utilize smart meter events, lack of meter reads, and events from other sources to quickly detect and mange utilities power outage handling and restoration effort. LVOMS can also be used along with an external OMS, and it provides the benefit of having both systems as it incorporates outage status, estimated time to restoration, and other value-add information from the OMS.
Will a full featured third party Outage Management System (OMS) exhaust your budget requirements? Are you dependent on highly accurate outage status information?
Smart meter data provides a lot of useful information, such as events related to outages. This information must be managed and intelligently filtered before feeding into your Outage Management System (OMS). Otherwise, storms or disasters can easily overload your OMS, which can significantly degrade its performance or worse, shut down when it needs to perform at its peak. OMS’s are specifically designed and optimized around the need to quickly restore power but they do not intelligently track or filter any of the outage details. EnergyIP Outage Management System enables utilities to leverage field data to improve operations and maintenance, potentially saving significant costs. It filters millions of AMI outage/restoration events to deliver only pertinent info to the OMS and proactively checks meter power status, and stores outage details for analysis.
Near real-time data from smart devices
Are you dependent on near real-time data processing requirements e.g., for customer facing applications or co-related outage events?
The EnergyIP Front End Processor (FEP) is a set of processes and data flow enhancements to facilitate the ingestion of high-speed interval data from smart meters, sensors, and other devices. It reads every 5 to 15 minutes from millions of meters and over 120 million channels. EnergyIP FEP is horizontally and vertically scalable with up to 60% less processing power required than comparable solutions.
It will support a wide array of use-cases such as real-time load monitoring, dynamic electricity production/consumption forecasting and distributed generation, to name a few. The application combines big data and fast event processing technologies.
Smart device management in low voltage networks
Millions of meters, sensors and routers are now an integral part of your utility's low voltage network. How will you manage all the devices on your low voltage network automatically to save time and costs?
EnergyIP Advanced Device Management (ADM) is designed to automatically manage all identifiable low voltage network devices while on-line. The implications are a positive impact on network stability, continuous improvement in performance to support increasing device types, and efficient use of skilled personnel.
Automated actions include periodic census for orphaned devices with reassignment to parent devices where possible. Census operations are also available to detect device software configurations and firmware versions. Non-compliant devices can be automatically reconfigured or can be flagged for review by network operations personnel. Different configurations can be set for each device thus allowing for complex network optimizations that are automatically maintained. ADM also features bulk transaction processing to support either one time or periodic software configuration changes and firmware upgrades to large groups of devices. Automated firmware upgrades assure devices are operationally optimized and are current with all relevant security patches.
Manage cash flow and protect your revenue while giving customers full control of their energy costs
