Smart Grid Analytics


Itron has developed a modern, scalable and integrated analytics solution. Itron strongly believes that analytics is a key component to extending the value of smart metering and smart grids. We have made significant investments in research and development to discover and productize new analytics use cases and algorithms. Itron’s years of industry insight and experience, combined with our Itron Analytics solution and consulting services, will provide you with the cutting-edge analytic capabilities of today and prepare you for the emerging priorities of tomorrow.

The technology now exists for utilities to collect highly detailed information right down to the point of delivery. This was not previously possible due to technology constraints and limited business drivers to justify these investments. Using new data from smart meter systems, and combining it with the data that utilities already have, means that utilities can see these extended benefits.

Itron offers technical and consulting services to ensure our utility customers realize the full value their smart grid and IT infrastructure investments. Itron’s skilled technical consultants deploy the solution by completing data mapping and integration services, system testing and go-live support. Itron Analytics extends a utility’s smart grid investment, allowing the realization of specific business outcomes in the following areas:

  • Grid Reliability and Efficiency
  • Operational Improvements
  • Loss Reductions
  • Distributed Generation
  • Responding to Government Mandates
  • Consumer Engagement
