Urjanet, the global leader in utility data aggregation, announced today that it has launched the industry’s first fully automated utility interval data service in response to growing demand for cost-effective energy and water saving solutions. The Data-as-a-Service solution, now offered through the Urjanet Utility Data Platform, boasts the most comprehensive coverage in the industry, connecting organizations to detailed interval data from more than 70 utility providers globally.
Urjanet Utility Interval Data enables organizations to easily obtain and analyze granular energy and water usage data without costly hardware installation or smart meter upgrades. Energy and facilities managers can identify areas to optimize and save on energy and water costs based on detailed electric, natural gas and water usage tracked and recorded in five to sixty minute intervals.
Traditional methods of accessing interval data — such as submetering, third party sharing, and manual download — are costly, time-consuming, and offer limited coverage. Urjanet Utility Interval Data requires no hardware installation, is fully automated to deliver interval data as soon as the utility provider makes it available, and offers the most coverage in the industry. Because the solution is 100 percent cloud-based, implementation is easy and customers can quickly begin receiving detailed utility interval data to highlight operational inefficiencies.
“Today’s announcement is another milestone for Urjanet, demonstrating our commitment to innovative utility data solutions that enable our customers to manage their energy costs and consumption in a cost-efficient and timely manner,” said Sanjoy Malik, CEO of Urjanet. “Urjanet Utility Interval Data enables organizations to easily utilize interval data to identify and manage events or operations that are causing high demand or high rate charges, ultimately reducing their cost of operation.”
The addition of granular, detailed usage data enables energy and facilities managers to derive new insights and identify more areas to optimize and save on consumption. By combining utility bill data and interval data, users have access to timely, relevant, and detailed data on energy and water consumption.
“The additional insights that organizations can glean from Urjanet Utility Interval Data are essential for virtually all energy management and operational efficiency efforts,” said Vladi Shunturov, president and CTO of Lucid. “Getting data directly from utilities is anything but simple or easy. Urjanet removes the complexity of utility data access to power energy management and sustainability software solutions, enabling our customers to have a clear picture of their key resource consumption – ultimately saving our customers time and money.”
While interval meter data from traditional sources like sub meters can be costly and difficult to acquire, Urjanet Utility Interval Data provides a cost effective, streamlined process to get the right data for each end user. Urjanet Interval Data provides:
- A deeper understanding of usage and consumption costs
- A better way to strategically plan energy initiatives
- A more budget-friendly investment over traditional methods
