Data Management: Data storage and organization in energy management

Data Management allows businesses to manage consumption data for the resources market.

Overview

The electricity market is characterized by a large amount of data: The high number of measurement points and the hourly frequency of data series mean that the management of the relevant curves is one of the first challenges that must be tackled. In addition, the electricity supply chain is characterized by institutional operators (markets, platforms, infrastructures) whose portals and production choices are daily conversation topics. The interaction with these data sources is a key problem for market operators.

Data Management is the application that allows businesses to manage consumption data for the resources market. The tool accurately and easily maps the technical structure of the network and the contractual relationships with end customers and infrastructure, enabling users to prepare and analyze the energy balance, taking into account different levels of transportation and local distribution.
