Grid4C’s Grid Edge AI Successfully Joins Itron’s Ecosystem of Distributed Intelligence Applications
Collaboration Transforms the Energy Value Chain to Utilities and Their Customers
The Grid4C DI app helps utilities better plan and enable energy efficiency and sustainability goals while engaging with consumers in reducing peak loads. It utilizes AI-powered algorithms on Itron’s secure, open-standards platform to determine appliance fault and inefficiencies predictions, detection and diagnostics; appliance load disaggregation; anomaly detection; meter load forecasting; and other insights. The intelligence provided through the Grid4C Grid Edge AI app can be utilized by any customer engagement channel to help provide timely energy insights and notifications. This intelligence can also be consumed by utility applications to help optimize grid resources. Grid4C utilized Itron’s Software Development Kit (SDK) for distributed intelligence to integrate its Edge AI app into the Itron Enterprise Application Center.
“By embedding the most advanced machine learning insights directly into Itron’s robust, high-performance IIoT network, we help utilities plan and optimize distributed energy resources in real time at the edge of the grid, preventing faults both on the grid side and on the consumer side and helping consumers better manage their energy. By joining Itron’s DI partner ecosystem, we will bring added value to Itron's customers and the communities they serve,” said Dr.
“Our collaboration with Grid4C is a great example of the power of a secure, open ecosystem and how we are expanding our utility customers’ choice when it comes to engaging with their customers. Our DI vision is enabled through an open and vibrant ecosystem of solution providers, which creates more opportunity for the consumer to capture the value of shifts in technology. With very accurate high fidelity data, developers can create applications that weren't possible before,” said
Itron’s robust distributed intelligence platform allows innovators to build open, interoperable, value-driven applications on Itron’s secure platform that evolve with market and consumer demands. The DI development program enables an ecosystem of third-party developers to ensure a greater selection of applications to meet utility needs today and into the future. These applications are available via the Itron Enterprise Application Center, which features an increasingly diverse portfolio of Itron and third-party applications that connect to Itron's industry-leading, IoT-based network. The Itron Enterprise Application Center is the operational backbone for our utility customers to manage applications for customers via a private, secure web portal.
