Decarbonise the Grid

Data Engineering software that provides unprecedented visibility of distribution networks so that Utilities can integrate renewables at scale

We help Utilities solve the challenges of renewable integration

Control Network Voltage

Resulting from large shifts in demand

Rooftop Solar, Storage and Batteries, Electric Vehicles and Peer to Peer Energy Trading all shift the way energy is both generated and consumed. As a result, network voltage management becomes a bottleneck renewable integration.

Future Grid’s revolutionary technology makes this possible so you integrate more renewables, more quickly.

Operate at the limits

Reduce and defer capital with visibility

Data Engineering turns smart meter data into real visibility of your distribution network so you can pinpoint capacity constraints at the right time and the right place for demand management.

Data Engineering will execute analytics and automate actions back into operational systems such as SCADA, ADMS and DERMS to manage performance – live.

Service Monitoring & Safety

Automated monitoring of entire networks

Data Engineering will monitor customer supply 24/7/365 with our world leading safety algorithms that can detect and pinpoint network faults live.

Data Engineering will correlate faults and surface to GIS and DMS while dispatching work orders to field crews automatically.

Enabling the Future of Electricity Distribution

Data Engineering puts data in the hands of the utility so that less time is spent managing data and more time is spent creating value

Renewable Integration

Turn existing smart meter data into Active Network Planning and real-time constraint management

Active Voltage Management

Active transformer and substation voltage control through SCADA, ADMS and DERMS.

Safety and Fire Prevention
  • Fault Location Identification

  • Loss of Neutral

  • Network Loss of Neutral

  • Fuse Candling

  • Active Wire Down Detection

  • Blown HV Fuse

  • Phase outages

Location Awareness

Visualise location, time and context of network power quality performance directly using GIS.

Active Outage Detection

Increases reliability and reduces restoration time as crews know exactly where to go first.

The Situation

Today you have data in different systems and places. You need to bring data together into one place to create visibility of your network. With many different data languages combined with the scale of this data, the problem has become difficult to solve – the data barrier.

The Solution

Data Engineering will ingest, transform and model all of your Utility data into an autonomous, live network model. Then operationalise algorithms for active network control, safety and reliability.

The Result

Visibility of a changing grid environment with locational awareness of assets, performance and safety to drive down cost and improve reliability.

Future Grid FAQs

If you’ve got this far, you’re interested in what we do. We often find people have the same questions about Future Grid, so here are our answers.

Why wouldn’t I just build it myself using the Cloud?

We support the cloud. However delivering a live grid network model with smart meter data is a complex problem. We solve this out of the box as a ready to go product. Data Engineering provides the context, you can then use that data through any tools in the cloud that are required.

Why can’t SAP and other systems I have do what Future Grid does?

SAP and single-use case software providers is far more expensive than Future Grid. These systems are built for a different use case and fail to deal with the data barrier caused by lots of smart meter and DER data.

I already have network and data visualisation systems

If you prefer to visualise in GIS, Tableau or PowerBI, Data Engineering will manage the processing and transformation of the large time-series based data-sets and ensure these dashboards are fast and responsive.

What about DERMS or ADMS, where does this fit in?

DERMS and ADMS are considered point solutions to support control of specific assets. Data Engineering is needed to manage the large volumes of data real-time and determine which control action is needed. As a result our algorithms will integrate to DERMS or ADMS not replace it.

I’ve already got my own data lake project or existing database

Data Lakes much like a database or data warehouse is still an important part of the Utility ecosystem. What Data Engineering provides is a simple and automated way turn operational data in a network model for operational context and decisions. We integrate with all major database vendors.
