Diehl Metering provides smart metering solutions to utilities companies through the intelligent networking of various metering devices into larger data platforms. Thanks to more than 20 years of experience with the company’s own radio technology, Diehl Metering has at its disposal excellent expertise in communications within the Internet of Things.
Through Energy Network Analytics, Diehl Metering empowers heat utilities to unlock new value in their heating network without having to make a major investment. This powerful solution transforms existing meter data into valuable intelligence, enabling heat utilities to increase network efficiency, reduce costs and boost customer satisfaction.
Energy Network Analytics relies on a fixed network combined with smart heat meters and flow sensors that provide regular data about individual buildings, individual consumptions, and the heat distribution network as a whole. All this information is then transmitted to the powerful Central Data Management software IZAR@NET 2, if hosted locally on the heat utility’s server – or IZAR PLUS PORTAL if they opt for Software as a Service.
The software interprets the data to deliver a clear dashboard of the heat distribution system, providing insightful analytics and useful alarms to alert utilities to anomalies in their heating network. What’s more, our IZAR software offers multi-utility and multi-sensor support, making it possible to combine different parts of the utility’s business on a single platform. Utilities can even work with us as part of our newly-launched IoT Network Planning Service to plan a fully-compliant and future-proof network, ensuring their individual wishes, needs and expectations are catered for, both now and in the future.
Energy Network Analytics is made up of multiple features, with each helping to build a clearer picture of the overall heat distribution network.
Through this multi-faceted approach, Energy Network Analytics creates new value in any heating network equipped with Diehl Metering heat meters and flow sensors. The solution capitalizes on the wealth of data already available in the network to provide unique, actionable insights. For heat utilities, this represents an affordable way to make significant gains in productivity, optimize costs and increase customer satisfaction. It also helps to drive sustainability for both the utility and the community it serves. In this way, Energy Network Analytics forms part of Diehl Metering’s commitment to empower a sustainable future for everyone, everywhere.
