Both the utility and energy consumer benefit from precise information that enables greater control over energy distribution and use. From home energy management applications to automated demand response, ACDC Smart helps make energy efficiency a reality from distribution to end use.
ACDC Smart helps accurately forecast demand and provide new insights into consumer behaviour. With detailed and accurate load profile information, utilities can use automated demand response tools and consumer pricing programs to help reduce peak demand and manage the load curve.
From systems integration to field operations, ACDC Smart provides process automation and information needed to improve resource management across the utility organisation. And because infrastructure, IT and communication services can be managed in a single end-to-end platform, implementation and operation of the technology are also efficient.
Integrating the processes used in operating, monitoring and managing multiple energy forms provides many benefits. For example, the flexible ACDC Smart platform can be used for a variety of advanced metering operations, including electricity, gas, water and heating.
Consumers want reliable and affordable energy from their utility. ACDC Smart is engineered to assist the utility in delivering both – from outage management and predictive maintenance to multi-tariff pricing and efficiency programs — in ways that engage the consumer with information and choices.
ACDC Smart assists in reducing non-technical losses and identifies theft with a wide range of advanced tools. Utilities can remotely switch power supply on and off, improve debt collection processes and respond quickly to abnormalities which may threaten revenue.
