Opower’s smart metering platform has surpassed 400 billion meter reads. Opower now analyzes 40 percent of all residential energy consumption data generated in the U.S.
Opower‘s platform uses energy data from over 55 million energy customers aggregated from nearly 100 utilities worldwide.
Opower’s capabilities include:
· Segmenting customers based on load type: using Opower’s data warehouse and other third party data, utilities can segment customers based on the times of day they use the most energy. These load curve archetypes enable utilities to design marketing and outreach programs based on actual consumer behavior.
· Delivering predictable outcomes: the volume of data enables much more accurate forecasting of results across each of Opower’s solutions — energy efficiency, behavioral demand response, digital engagement and customer care.
· Unlocking insights: Opower’s software infrastructure and Hadoop-based data store allows for large data processing high speeds. This gives utilities faster, more reliable access to insights from customer data to help inform their programs.
These capabilities are enabled by Opower’s technology platform, Opower 6. Last month, Opower announced a broad set of upgrades to Opower’s platform that provide best in class tools and analytics to all clients, as well as a new Customer Care solution.
