By 2020 over 800M smart meters are expected to be installed worldwide. Alongside this widespread implementation comes the unprecedented potential for increases in operational efficiency and customer insight. However, utilities and other aggregators of energy consumption data must be able to pull out the complex insights contained in this data to take full advantage of the opportunities.

Our mission is to help these companies fully utilise their data to reduce the cost of energy, increase profitability, reduce emissions, and enable innovative service offerings. Based on three years of expert research at the University of Cambridge, Smart Meter Analytics Platform (SMAP) is a B2B SaaS product for understanding the underlying behavioural drivers of energy consumption and translating them into commercial action, enabling operational benefits and next-generation services.

Based on three years of expert research at the University of Cambridge, Smart Meter Analytics Platform (SMAP) is a B2B SaaS product for understanding the underlying behavioural drivers of energy consumption and translating them into commercial action, enabling operational benefits and next-generation services.

SMAP is a ready-to-deploy solution for energy companies who have smart-meter data access and want to start understanding the insights contained within. SMAP is provided as a monthly subscription, priced to be both cheaper and more effective than any internal data science team or existing IT solution. Its requirements are uniquely minimal - only customer ID, timestamp, and measured consumption on an hourly basis are required - allowing for flexible integration at the earliest stages of smart meter implementation. What makes SMAP truly valuable is its novel algorithmic methodology that puts the emphasis on understanding energy consumption behaviour and how price signals can influence change, as neglecting this aspect leaves many opportunities unexplored.

SMAP can help utilities gain a competitive edge by using its capabilities to deeply understand customer energy profiles and anticipate market changes. Some of the tools currently available include:

Consumption Visualisation Widget & Energy Savings Tracker
Profitability Optimisation
Load Forecasting
Data Consultation, including Time-of-Use Tariff Planning

Taken as a whole, SMAP is an innovative, easier, and more cost effective solution for extracting value from energy consumption data.

Melvyn Weeks Assistant Professor at Faculty of Economics, University of Cambridge

I am an assistant professor in the economics faculty at the University of Cambridge. I also advise the UK energy regulator, the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (OFGEM), on matters relating to modelling. The primary focus of my research is econometric modelling, with a particular emphasis on energy. I have been working with the SMAP Energy team directly for several months. The algorithmic methodology underlying SMAP is certainly novel and proactively addresses many elements of the energy data collection restrictions. I'm looking forward to continuing working alongside the team as we aim SMAP at addressing big challenges like vulnerable customer monitoring.

Though SMAP Energy was only recently founded, it is clear that the team is highly qualified and are well positioned to help usher utilities into the next generation of technological growth. We are definitely interested in exploring a commercial implementation with SMAP to help advance MEDC and Oman as a whole for better utilization of the resources and efficiency of the available assets."

Mounir Yehia

I am the CEO of NEEDS, an energy sector consultancy firm with high regional level group of experts who was involved in utility digital transformation and smart grid projects with more than 4 Billion dollars projects in four regional countries. SMAP is the next-generation of data analytics solutions in energy, and I plan to include them on my future projects."

Andrew Burford

Climate-KIC is supporting SMAP Energy's development via its European acceleration programme based in London. The team have a great idea with a clear market need that can also address the climate change challenge. It's a pleasure to work with such a bright, outward looking team with great business, scientific and technical skills.
