London, 1st October 2014

ONZO, the world leader in energy data analytics, is pleased to announce the granting of two US patents that underpin the company’s advanced energy analytics solutions. ONZO’s CIO Will Siddall said, “These US patents are an important further recognition of the innovation which ONZO has brought to the energy industry. Coupled with our portfolio of UK granted patents and further applications we have made in the UK, US and in other markets, these patents provide protection for our solutions and ensure our clients of the enhanced value of working with ONZO”.

The newly granted patents (8,843,332 and 8,825,583) relate to the techniques ONZO employs for disaggregating consumption data to determine the energy used by individual appliances, and the structure of the utility customer insight platform which enables ONZO to perform analysis on large volumes of data. The newly patented techniques enable ONZO to perform analysis on highly detailed data gathered from customers’ smart meters and energy sensors, and, through intelligent management of that data, reduce data storage and analytics processing requirements by as much as 99%, whilst maintaining the value of the insights found from the data.

Laborelec seek to understand end uses for ONZO’s load disaggregation solution

ONZO, the world leader in energy data analytics, has today announced that it is collaborating with leading Belgium-based company Laborelec to explore how ONZO’s load disaggregation solution can be used to help customers of utilities.

Laborelec is one of GDF SUEZ’s Research and Competence centres, which researches new technologies and explores the possibilities they unlock for the utility company and their customers. Its expertise focuses on reducing effects on the environment, improving availability and maintenance, and energy systems of the future.

Laborelec have identified ONZO as a leading provider of load disaggregation technology, and are working with them to understand the capabilities of the ONZO solution. ONZO and Laborelec will then be working together to explore the possible use cases for Load Disaggregation and how these could be utilised by utilities.

“Load Disaggregation is an exciting technology which can enable utilities to get the most from smart meter and sensor deployments, helping engage customers regarding their energy use, and delivering real commercial benefits”, said ONZO’s CIO Will Siddall. “Too often though, the uses for meter data are considered too late in a smart programme. That’s why we are really excited to be working at the research stage with a utility that has a clear ambition to use new technology”.

Rafael Jahn, Technology Manager at Laborelec, said “We recognise that a load disaggregation solution offers compelling new insights both for utility customers and their utility providers. We are pleased to be working with ONZO to assess this new technology”.
