As an extension to its existing meter data management partnership with Siemens awarded in September 2016, Entergy will continue to build on the company’s EnergyIP Platform with the deployment of Siemens analytics foundation and unaccounted for energy applications. The EnergyIP platform allows even greater management and analytics capability for meter data that will help reduce electricity loss and improve power quality for its customer base.

“Deployed together, unaccounted for energy applications and analytics foundation offer significant opportunities to transform business process and boost profitability.” said Mike Carlson, president of Siemens Digital Grid, North America.

Analytics foundation provides cutting-edge software tools and technologies that will enable a broad range of users, with skill sets ranging from citizen data scientists to advanced application developers, to harness the data. Such broad access to this information has the potential to radically improve and transform traditional business processes such as load research, distribution planning and customer service, among others.

Unaccounted for energy applications leverages the capabilities of the analytics foundation technology and extends it further to aid in the reliable and efficient detection of electricity and gas theft. Using advanced machine learning algorithms combined with an intuitive interface, the platform will be a powerful tool in the hands of users to make the most of smart meter data.

Siemens Digital Grid partners with leading utilities and industrial energy consumers worldwide to provide expertise and innovative technologies. In North America, Digital Grid has worked with more than 1,000 energy customers to deliver proven solutions and services that improve operational efficiencies, enhance reliability and resiliency, and empower consumers to better manage their energy use.
