Helsinki, Finland – The Finnish energy corporation Seinäjoen Energia expands their usage of the energy analytics service Utilytics to cover the grid operations. The expansion follows shortly after Seinäjoen Energia started to use Utilytics to develop their energy retail business.
The contract is made for a 3-year term for Enoro’s cloud-based SaaS service, following good experiences from the first months of using Utilytics in the retail business of Seinäjoen Energia. The subsidiary Seiverkot Oy will now use Utilytics to cover the grid operations. With Utilytics, Seiverkot Oy looks for improved operational efficiency, better value for grid investments and modern tools for new grid tariff planning.
“We have now used Utilytics successfully for a couple of months in our retail business. Already during this short period of time, the service has demonstrated its capabilities and provided us concrete and beneficial insights. It was an easy decision to expand the usage, and we are confident that with Utilytics we can improve also our grid operations. We will continue our partnership-like cooperation with the Utilytics team to develop the service to serve both the current and future needs of energy companies,” says Martti Ijäs, the network chief at Seiverkot Oy.
With the near real-time analysis of data provided by smart meters, Utilytics offers insights about grid assets, resulting in better value for grid investments and improved customer experience. Further near-future development of the DSO business cases includes tariff planning, tariff scenarios, self-service analytics and several other common development areas.
