Zeist - The Netherlands, October 16, 2020. During the Free Electrons 2020 innovation program NET2GRID introduced Hybrid Artificial Intelligence for Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring to 10 global utilities. As a first result from the Free Electrons program utility EDP chose NET2GRID recently for this unique solution as their new supplier of Hybrid-AI NILM in the near future.
What are Hybrid-AI models?
These hybrid-AI models combine real-time data with smart-meter data resulting in an AI engine that delivers accurate and comprehensive disaggregation results of energy consumption on household activity level. Enriching standard smart meter data requires only a modest investment to the existing smart-meter infrastructure to manage the operational challenges introduced by a fast uptake of renewables in the energy mix.
In more detail, using the NET2GRID Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) disaggregation service, utilities and DSOs are able to use intraday forecasting services, help consumers to increase the electricity share in the energy-mix and create flexibility in the energy market. The NET2GRID Hybrid realtime and AMR data AI NILM engine delivers the best in class disaggregation results at a fraction of the costs.
