For almost 100 years, AusNet Services has been moving energy into homes and businesses across Victoria 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As Victoria’s largest energy delivery service business, we own and operate approximately $11 billion of electricity and gas network assets that connect more than 1.4 million customers. And that’s why we’re serious about delivering safe, efficient and reliable energy around the clock. Based in Melbourne, AusNet Services employs almost 1,900 people in regional and metropolitan Victoria to make sure that our 720,000 electricity and 690,000 gas customers enjoy the benefits of power, light, cooling, heating and entertainment every day at the cheapest price possible.
Due to regulatory compliance, AusNet was challenged to replace 700,000 legacy meters across a diverse geographical environment creating network communications coverage complexity. To demonstrate compliance and smart grid uptime, AusNet would need to consistently produce accurate meter performance data on a daily basis for 20 market retailers. This required integrating and analyzing massive volumes of smart grid data in real-time.
AusNet trusted OSI Consulting to implement Bit Stew Systems technology (Now part of GE Digital) to centralize data integration on a single, holistic platform that significantly enhanced data visualization and empowered more efficient demand response. By leveraging the machine learning, artificial intelligence and semantic data modeling of Predix Studio and App Engine platform, AusNet was able to provide a reliable, accurate single source of truth to retailers and regulators.
