Big Data Analytics Market Trends

Smart Metering to Fuel Market Growth

  • Smart metering in Big Data analytics contains components such as grid operations, resource planning, field services, customer experience, and regulatory compliances. It helps enhance demand and forecast through the data generated, which will likely boost market growth.
  • Furthermore, Big Data analytics in smart metering assists in predicting energy consumption, which plays a vital role in managing demand and supply and mitigates the waste of energy. According to the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) report published in March 2022, a total of 3.8 million smart meters were installed recently, with a 7% increase from the previous year. In addition, in Colombia, the government desires to have 75% of households with smart meters til 2030, according to an official resolution.
  • Further, the large number of smart meters deployed can generate tremendous data. For example, if an intelligent meter records data every half hour, the number of records generated by twenty million intelligent meters is 3.5×1011 over just one year. Further, the diversity and nature of smart meter data (e.g., consumption, fault, outage, and price information) results in heterogeneous multi-source data. Thus, smart meter data has the characteristics of big data, such as large volumes and high heterogeneity. In addition, intelligent meter data must be quickly processed and analyzed to facilitate real-time analysis. According to the Institute for Electric Efficiency, 124 million smart meters installed in 2022 in the United States, a slightly increased from the previous year.
  • Moreover, utilities that require decarbonization and decentralization can benefit from metering data by adding other information sources like geographic information systems (GIS), CIS, and weather data. AWS Quick Start deploys the Smart Meter Data Analytics (MDA) platform on AWS Cloud. This platform helps the utilities tap the value of energy consumption data while removing heavy lifting. The platform also allows utilities to provide new services such as load prediction, deeper customer engagement through proactive notifications, predictive maintenance on distribution assets, and circuit quality analytics.
  • Depending on the business context, the individual operating systems can send data to the platform and get actionable insights. For example, According to a report by AWS, Kalkitech is an AWS Select Technology Partner, providing meter communication solutions such as a protocol stack for meter reading applications, a large-scale meter simulator, and a meter test tool. The company offers these tools per the regulatory bodies, providing smart metering as a cloud-based service.
  • The MDA platform can process up to 250TB of meter reads daily in batches. It also handles late-arriving data and prepares data for different consumption endpoints like a data warehouse (Amazon Redshift), a machine learning pipeline (Amazon SageMaker), or APIs to make the data consumable for third-party applications.
  • Developing countries are hugely investing in the energy sector, which is expected to boost smart metering with advanced Big Data techniques in the coming years. Additionally, Ameren proposed expanding its Smart Energy Plan (SEP) with Missouri regulators, laying out a strategy to install 1.2 million smart meters by 2025 and purchasing two wind farms totaling 700 MW recently.
