The electric power industry is in transition, consumed with the implementation of a true end-to-end Smart Grid that will connect the applications within the utility to the consumer resulting in reduced energy consumption. Various new application layers will improve and optimize electricity generation, delivery and consumption.
Weather is a constantly changing high-impact variable for the power industry, touching all aspects of the grid. Integration of a live hyper-local weather layer within grid applications will incorporate real-time intelligence into applications enabling accurate forecasting, improved outage management, and load shifting and peak-demand reduction with minimal customer impact.
Earth Networks combines its vast data processing infrastructure, information from over 10,000 live weather stations, as well as a portfolio of products and services to provide the electric power industry with information and tools to drive optimal load balancing, successful demand response and consumer energy management initiatives. The result is lower energy consumption, reduced costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
Largest weather network providing proprietary and multi-source real-time information on 27 weather variables including wind speed and direction, lightning, temperature, humidity, and rainfall.
