Changing market structures require energy companies
to effectively and efficiently store and manage large
volumes of metering data - data from which value can
be extracted to enhance customer service levels and
Kinetiq's Data Management module imports
interval (time of use) and basic consumption data from
collection systems which is then stored in a compressed,
encrypted and time bound powerfile format.Metering data
is allocated a range of attributes including physical
location, customer, customer type, retailer and location
on the distribution network.
Each PowerFile is encrypted and secured with access
passwords ensuring that unauthorized personnel cannot
read the data.
Metering data can be rapidly aggregated and profiled
by attribute. Data aggregation has applications in billing,
reporting, analysis and market settlement.
Rapid retrieval of data by individual metering point
or aggregated by attribute for export to other Kinetiq
modules (e.g. Billing) or
to third party applications. The Kinetiq Data Access
Object (DAO) provides the option to output aggregated
data in a universal csv format.
