Granular energy data isn't readily available on the internet. It has to be measured, transmitted and then processed to make it presentable, easily understandable and actionable.
Wattwatchers devices acquire the data and deliver it to the Cloud, then our server and our Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) take over - providing the foundation for our emerging, highly-scalable Energy Data Hub model.
Running at full capability, Wattwatchers devices can each transmit over 100,000 energy data measurements a day, compared with 48 a day for a standard utility smart meter. This means high-level data processing is vital to scaling up for large fleets of Wattwatchers devices in the field, with the ongoing ability to handle the ingestion, analysing and acting upon billions of data points per day.
Our Energy Data Hub model is increasingly supporting this data-enabled energy system by:
Cost-effectively ingesting any amount of raw data from Wattwatchers devices in the field
Organising and presenting it as 'energy data' in highly useful formats and visualisations
Providing strong backend support for third-party dashboards and apps (i.e. more and more powerful APIs)
Building the platform for energy-data-as-a-service and control-as-a-service business models
Participating in new and expanding energy marketplaces e.g. demand response
Facilitating integration with IoT, machine learning and artificial intelligence
