Press Release: Smart Metering Meets Big Data; QMC Partners with Keboola
May 29, 2018
Smart Utility metering is now part of the Internet of Things.
Data is being recorded of when, where and how much utilities are being consumed in retail, office towers, multi-family and institutional facilities.
The problem: How to compile and organize large amounts of meter data and provide meaningful analysis so building owners and managers can make decisions regarding energy consumption and target impactful energy conservation initiatives.
Announcing QMC’s new partnership with Keboola: Client’s utility usage data will be compiled and aggregated across industry and business types. Business chains can compare their utility consumption on a store to store basis or costs per square foot. Identify why some locations are more efficient or operating outside of specification. Baselines and benchmarks will be created to compare the performance of multiple locations or business units. The utility consumption data will be leveraged together with sales, foot traffic, weather, labour and other data companies already managed using Keboola.
“There’s a significant untapped resource here that we can utilize through smart metering,” according to James Easton, President & CEO of QMC. “By working together and sharing data, we can begin optimizing energy consumption patterns and identifying opportunities for our clients to save energy and costs. We look forward to a long and success partnership with Keboola.”
“Any data dramatically increases in value when put into the correct context, which often means more data,” said Milan Veverka, partner at Keboola. “Adding the high-quality utilities usage data from QMC to their data environment will provide new insights and business opportunities for both our current and future customers, especially when combined with latest data analysis and AI capabilities.”
