Predict Demand, Ensure Supply, and Continuously Balance Multiple Supply Sources
Utilities can meet short and longer term demand spikes by analyzing incoming smart meter data to predict future consumption.
For example, when the temperature hits 85 degrees in Sydney, Australia, everyone turns on their air conditioner. The combined events of more than 10,000 homes turning on air conditioners could trigger a rule to automatically turn on energy supply from additional service providers.
With TIBCO's real-time infrastructure and automated processes, utilities can balance distributed, intermittent energy sources on-the-fly, ensuring supply while minimizing use of carbon sources.
