NET2GRID is one of the leading companies worldwide of real-time NILM (non-intrusive load monitoring) services. NET2GRID’s energy insight platform reduces energy companies' costs while increasing customer engagement and can be critical for developing data-driven solutions for DSOs. NET2GRID provides access to high resolution data from almost any kind of meters (legacy meters, smart meters, digital meters or even with DIN-meter options) at 10% of the cost of competing solutions in the market today. It offers a scalable (vertically and horizontally) cloud-based service delivery platform as a white-label product to collect, analyze and convert big energy data into valuable services. It delivers unique energy analytics services that start from easy and cheap to acquire AMR data to high-freq energy data in the range of kHz resolutions. NILM is the cornerstone on which most of the energy services are built and for 1-10 seconds resolution data we manage to achieve 90% accuracy and 80% NILM coverage.
