Locuz Enabling Renewable Energy Sector to make Data Driven Decisions

Contact Us

In the space of energy fossil fuels account for more than 80% of global energy production. But things are changing fast. Energy Generators & distributors are focusing on renewable sources of energy. Solar, Wind, and Hydro are picking pace. The US Canada and Mexico are building a new super grid together. India is also leading the charge in the South Asia region. Similar efforts are underway globally. We know about power-starved Europe and how usual sources of energy are struggling to keep up and there is immense need for additional energy sources, that are also sustainable. Renewable energy sources can be a boon for the planet.

How can data insights accelerate the Power Sector?

Within the power sector, and specifically in the renewables energy space, the following use cases are of interest to the Executives shredded down to a specific KPI.

  • Improving Service reliability
  • Reducing Revenue losses and Inefficiencies
  • Being able to do better forecasting
  • Improving End customer Experience

The challenge ahead for analytics in the Renewables energy space is that today Data leaders and Executives are challenged to find the right solution starting from finding the right Architecture to what services to use to ensuring that the solution they choose scales up.

Some organizations even lack the knowledge and skills for modern AI/ML, Cloud, IoT, and data tools. Data privacy and security issues can stop any experimentation in their tracks should there be non-compliance. For business stakeholders, the time for meaningful insights is too long.

How did our solution help Greenko complete their vision of revolutionizing the renewables energy space?

Greenko is a leading energy solution provider in the changing energy landscape of India that is helping drive change to Renewables Energy in India. With a total installed capacity of 7.5 GW, which includes wind (2000+ wind turbines), solar (5+ million solar panels) and hydro (25 sites), Greenko has electrified over 6.3 million households and has removed an equivalent of over 17 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

The first biggest challenge for Greenko was to get a Real time monitoring of Wind Turbine Assets with dashboards. This would help them visualize total number of connected assets, wind speed, power output, average power output, power generation and more.
