Meet the future of digital utilities

Utilities will play a vital role for smart cities. Smart metering will enable digital utilities to support new consumption profiles and emerging market models. Smart utilization of data is crucial for supporting clean and economic cities.

New power consumption profiles

Wide adoption of electric vehicles calls for new approaches for balancing load on grids. Consumers with solar cells on their rooftops change the way we think of power supply today.

Power supplier centric models

New regulations call for power centric supplier models where the power supplier is billing grid and power usage. National datahubs contribute to single invoicing and increased competition in the energy market.

Smart metering enabling innovation

Deployment of smart meters is a crucial enabler for the digital utility. Access to a vast amount of data from the grid is the foundation for innovation and intelligent grid operation.

Introducing smart cities

In smart cities, energy, water and transportation are managed in concert to support a clean and economic city for living, work and play. Innovative utilization of data is crucial for enabling cities of tomorrow.

Metercloud is an integration service for smart metering, smart grid and smart city applications.

Enabling the digital utility with Metercloud

The choice of integration solution will be crucial for enabling the digital utility. The move away from heavy legacy systems into best of breed components calls for new approaches for handling vast amounts of smart metering data. Traditional middleware platforms provide a technical infrastructure that is used to realize customized integration solutions. Metercloud adds direct business value with its configurable and flexible business integration applications for smart metering, smart grid and smart cities. Integrations delivered as a service makes it easy for utilities to overcome integration challenges.

Interoperability

Secure investments in core business applications such as MDM, DMS, WMS, NIS or CIS with Greenbird’s wide experience on connectors ensuring interoperability between business applications.

Lower risk

Metercloud will lower project and integration risks with configurable integration applications and leading insight into smart metering challenges.

Integration as a Service

Metercloud is an Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) and simplifies application operations and application managament for smart metering integration solutions.

Rapid integration

Reduce time to realize business value with configurable application connectors and integration applications delivered through Integration Solution as a Service (iSaaS). Faster time to market for implementation.

Lower upfront investments

DSOs will lower their upfront investments in custom integration solutions with configurable integration applications for smart metering and smart grid.

Metercloud integration services

Metercloud integration services will provide ready-to-use integration solutions and configurable business integration processes for smart metering and smart grids. With traditional middleware platforms, utilities would have to invest in developing their own integration solutions from scratch. Configurable Metercloud services support core usage scenarios like smart meter simulation, smart meter rollout, smart meter operations and market operations.

Metercloud Ghostwriter

Service simulating data output from Head End Systems (HES) to support planning, deployment and testing of smart metering value chains. Supports a long range of consumption profiles and outage events.

Metercloud smart metering rollout

Service supporting DSOs during smart meter rollout projects. Supports required message exchanges between systems like Work Order Systems, Customer Information Systems, Network Information Systems and third parties.

Metercloud smart metering operations

Service supporting business processes delivering reliable meter readings as a foundation for grid usage and power billing for customers. It includes support for exchanging meter readings between the Head End System, Meter Data Management and national datahubs.

Metercloud smart grid operations

This service enables processes like grid planning, operations and maintenance. All events and readings from both smart meters and smart grid will be stored in Metercloud Grid and Generic Data Warehouse. This approach give DSOs unparalleled access to data for planning and optimization of their grid investments.

Metercloud market operations

Integration service supporting core market operations like customers moving in and out, start of supply, end of supply master data updates. Includes support for integration towards national datahubs.

Metercloud settlement operations

Service supporting settlement operations at power suppliers. Includes support for reconciliation processes and integration towards national datahubs for supporting single invoicing for grid usage and power usage.
