GRID VISIBILITY THROUGH REAL-TIME MONITORING.
RESPONDING TO THE EVOLVING ENERGY LANDSCAPE
Energy Networks lack visibility of the low-voltage grid, which is under increasing pressure from new technologies like solar and wind. Without visibility, Networks struggle to manage power supply and maintain reliability.
eSensor enables full grid visibility through real-time monitoring of transformers
In 2013 Pepco prevented a critical transformer failure worth $3 million and prevented a $4 million new transformer purchase with monitoring
Data to network, DER integration and smart grid realisation
Network emergency repairs cost ~$20,000
Locating leakage locations on the grid can eliminate 50+ million metric tons of CO2 emissions annually
Energex & Ergon pay $2,200 per complaint investigation.
Annual cost of $2.2 million (2016)
QLD government estimated power theft at a cost of $30 million per year
Average ROI on predictive maintenance monitoring equipment is ~ 9 -15 mths
Toronto Hydro saved 100,000 outage minutes by implementing, monitoring and identifying 12 overloaded transformers
COMMON NETWORK ISSUES
SA Power Network expects to pay ~20 million to households who lost power for more than 12 hours
No real-time monitoring of transformers
Reactive maintenance which leads to long customer outage periods
High carbon emissions
IMPACTS OF NO VISIBILITY
