analytics software company, ONZO, and EDMI, the global smart metering
solutions leader, have unveiled an innovative new partnership that will allow
consumers to view their energy usage at a granular level, to maximise energy
efficiency and to adapt their behaviour to save money.
EDMI's advanced Energy Cloud platform
allows energy service providers and utilities to collect and manage information
across large smart metering deployments. The platform enables energy service
providers and utilities to collect data on customer energy profiles for various
purposes such as meter data management and energy use analytics. ONZO is working
with EDMI to integrate analytics into the Energy Cloud product to enable energy
service providers and utilities to gain insights about their customers and
provide improved engagement products.
Through partnering with ONZO, EDMI will
be able to provide utilities and energy service providers with highly
personalised energy data analytic solutions that can be used to provide
advanced analytics directly to their own customers.
ONZO analytics will be used for
gamification, allowing customers to play games against themselves or friends to
improve energy management, solar analytics, and energy breakdown by appliance.
Focused analytics engines will also enable the utility to understand the
different demographics, trends and preferences of their customer which ultimately
allows them to build a better relationship and offer more targeted products and
Spencer Rigler, CEO of ONZO, said: "Through our partnership with EDMI,
ONZO's analytics will enable utilities to truly understand their customer's
energy usage and develop stronger personal relationships. Personalised
engagement through gamification and energy breakdown is the next step for the
industry and will ultimately improve customer loyalty and reduce churn for
Andrew Thomas, Executive Director, EDMI Australasia,

Integration between ONZO's analytics and
EDMI's Energy Cloud platform has begun with the aim to roll out to Australasian

ONZO is a global leader in consumer
energy data and analytics. ONZO combines the science of energy analytics
with load disaggregation, lifestyle behaviour analysis and probabilistic
forecasting to give utilities and their customers unprecedented insights into
how, where and when energy is used. Leveraging granular smart meter data,
