Digitising Electricity Networks

 Rapid & scalable transformation is here

Rapid digitisation of electricity networks is required to deliver critical decarbonisation and operational strategies.

Renewables, batteries and innovation will help satisfy increased demand and improve the reliability of supply as electricity becomes our principal energy source. 

And while demand for data that informs a strategic transformation and enables several decarbonisation programs, including carbon credit schemes and ESG reporting has never been higher, patchy smart meter (SM) rollouts have increased manual meter reading costs and access to electricity data.

Industry Challenges

  • Ageing analogue infrastructure
  • High digitisation costs
  • Manual meter reading costs
  • Demand for 100%-digital NEM
  • High data demands
  • ESG reporting mandates

DIGITISATION OF ENERGY NETWORKS IS KEY TO ELECTRIFICATION

SNAPI’s IoT and AI-powered digital meter reader is making digital upgrades to electricity networks more workable.

Devices empower electricity utilities to collect data sooner, and at lower cost. Plugging in these “data gaps” is a key enabler to new operational capabilities and planning for the future grid, and brings forward new sources of revenue and cost savings.

AI-POWERED DIGITAL METER READING

SNAPI’s IoT digital meter reading is powered by AI to enable remote, digital data capture with +99.9% accuracy.

Upgrading analogue meters to enable digital reading with a SNAPI device takes less than 10seconds. Without need for service downtime or licensed trades, utilities save further on installation with SNAPI readers. Electricity utilities save on these costs and meanwhile, boost ROI on existing infrastructure, extending the lifetime of analogue assets for up to 15+ years in line with device battery life.
