Utilities of all sizes face a world of new technology systems and greater quantities of data. Emerald People’s Utility District adopted a strategic plan with technology upgrades at the forefront of its key initiatives. At the same time, the utility wished to be proactive in showing a clear path between all of its new data and real, tangible value for its customers. Emerald PUD partnered with The Energy Authority (TEA) to develop a new flexible data analytics platform and advanced analytics service. With this platform, Emerald and TEA worked jointly to run multiple analytical studies, notably in the areas of energy efficiency and time of use rate design.
The purpose of the project was twofold: 1) to develop a flexible advanced analytics platform that can accept data inputs from any source regardless of vendor; and 2) to run a series of real world studies using advanced analytics to determine whether a smaller public power utility can benefit from this type of work.
In this webinar, Emerald PUD will discuss how working with data can help utilities solve real world issues by focusing on energy efficiency and rate design. The project leads will talk about using data for a variety of purposes: to identify customers with the highest potential for energy efficiency savings, to verify that a customer has performed an energy efficiency measure, to quantify the actual savings resulting from energy efficiency measures, and to reduce peak demand by designing an optimized time of use rate structure.
This AMI project is sure to be transferable to other DEED members considering investing in AMI and new technology systems. Emerald PUD hopes to provide a replicable example to prove that advanced analytics is accessible to those beyond just large, well-funded organizations.
