Whilst at one of New Zealand's largest energy retailers, Jeremy Allen recognised that large users of energy wanted to better manage their utility costs, however they were struggling in this effort due to a lack of good data. Thus, the genesis of Energy Solution Providers (ESP).
Jeremy founded ESP to provide independent expertise and advice to help clients better manage and reduce their utility costs. With over 18 years’ utility management experience, particularly in measurement and monitoring, Jeremy uses his knowledge to create value for clients and has achieved multi-million-dollar savings for many companies. He is passionate in his belief that all companies can create massive savings through access to good data and delivers on this passion every day.
Large amounts of data are increasingly available in the energy sector with the continuous application of sensors, wireless transmission, network communication and cloud computing technologies.
Using learnings from the last 10 years, this discussion will focus on the sources, potential and characteristics of big data for smart energy management. Afterwards, you will understand how to take practical steps for using data-driven smart energy management in IT infrastructure, data collection, data integration, sharing, processing and analysis, security and privacy.
