Data analytics software company, ONZO, and EDMI, the global smart metering solutions leader, have unveiled an innovative new partnership that will allow consumers to view their energy usage at a granular level, to maximise energy efficiency and to adapt their behaviour to save money.

EDMI’s advanced Energy Cloud platform allows energy service providers and utilities to collect and manage information across large smart metering deployments. The platform enables energy service providers and utilities to collect data on customer energy profiles for various purposes such as meter data management and energy use analytics. ONZO is working with EDMI to integrate analytics into the Energy Cloud product to enable energy service providers and utilities to gain insights about their customers and provide improved engagement products.

Through partnering with ONZO, EDMI will be able to provide utilities and energy service providers with highly personalised energy data analytic solutions that can be used to provide advanced analytics directly to their own customers.

Spencer Rigler, CEO of ONZO, said: “Through our partnership with EDMI, ONZO’s analytics will enable utilities to truly understand their customer’s energy usage and develop stronger personal relationships. Personalised engagement through gamification and energy breakdown is the next step for the industry and will ultimately improve customer loyalty and reduce churn for utilities.”

Andrew Thomas, executive director, EDMI Australasia, said: “Our partnership with ONZO will enable us to add significant value to the data from our energy solutions and allow utilities and energy service providers to deliver new solutions such as in-home sensors and energy management capability directly to their customers. ONZO has been able to tailor its solution around our specific requirements and offer flexibility in the solution we offer utilities.”
