Urjanet has been successful with its Utility Data Service because it focuses on solving the specific, difficult problem of collecting and managing utility consumption and cost data with a unique solution that works well. This is a practical solution that has delivered real value to customers and the environment.
Urjanet’s Utility Data Service is a platform that provides companies and energy solutions providers with automated utility data for energy management. The platform helps end-users reach their sustainability goals by providing crucial data that organizations need to report on key sustainability metrics and reduce energy costs.
With 4.5 billion meters, hundreds of thousands of tariffs, and more than 27,000 utilities — each with unique data formats, data structures, content and semantics — organizations struggle to get the energy data they need. Slow, poor quality data also makes it difficult for organizations to proactively and efficiently manage their utilities consumption and spending. Energy management and sustainability teams struggle to collect and manage utility data from thousands of invoices.
Urjanet’s fully-automated utility data platform simplifies the collection, normalization, and delivery of utility data. The platform has connectors into the most popular energy management, sustainability and business applications, the company says. Its global utility data network is comprised of connections to thousands of utilities around the world.
Urjanet’s Utility Data Service platform reduces operational expenses by leveraging cloud-based technologies that automatically collect, normalize, and deliver utility data. It also reduces an organization’s overhead while improving efficiency. Organizations can easily start working with utility data to uncover numerous opportunities for energy reduction and cost savings.
The platform was engineered to overcome the massive challenges inherent in the complexity of utility data. An advanced semantic database and processing architecture intelligently collect and aggregate terabytes of data from thousands of utilities across the world so the data becomes useful for end-users as well as energy and sustainability solutions providers.
Leading energy and sustainability solutions providers use Urjanet to improve operational efficiency, profits and customer satisfaction. Half of all energy and sustainability solutions providers rely on Urjanet for utility data, according to the company. Some of the world’s biggest brands use the platform to gain insights into their energy consumption and spending.
With Urjanet, Cox Enterprises has saved millions on its $100 million annual electricity and natural gas spend. A senior director there estimated that, depending on the market, the company could see anywhere from 10% to 30% in savings. The automotive products company Mubea reduced water usage by 3 million gallons annually with Urjanet. Utility and energy management company Ecova expanded its global reach and increased operational efficiency by integrating Urjanet into its C&I solutions portfolio, including facility optimization, sustainability reporting, and energy supply management.
