Energy Utilization Analytics

A comprehensive energy management solution

With technological advancements at the forefront of a rapidly evolving energy market, the rise of renewables and hybrids have created opportunities for energy management tools to intellectualize the inherent complexity. Coupled with a growing importance of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing, a significant competitive advantage has surfaced with strategic energy management tools aimed at optimizing corporate energy usage and reducing carbon footprint. 

Optos is a software platform developed by NextEra Analytics that is designed to help customers understand their electricity consumption and optimize their procurement and sustainability decisions. As an energy management platform, Optos can help organizations realize the full potential of their resources. By combining expertise in both renewable infrastructure and analytics, we make it easier to navigate the modern grid. 

By focusing on four aspects of energy systems operations, customers can maximize value by connecting, optimizing, forecasting and enhancing their energy mix.

  1. Connect – Unify your systems and resources for better clarity and control
  2. Forecast – Anticipate what’s next so you can plan accordingly
  3. Optimize – Maximize value and minimize risk with machine learning
  4. Enhance – Evaluate and improve performance in real time

1. View and control devices in real time
We begin with real-time data and can “connect” to any existing resource using APIs or our proprietary Optos Connect Grid Edge Device.

2. Anticipate market outcomes
Once real-time data is obtained, a history then allows us to forecast behavior which can come from a variety of sources.

3. Develop and implement market strategies
We then combine a variety of forecasts with market rules, physical, and financial constraints to Optimize the preferred hourly and 5-minute operating schedules.

4. Monitor and improve performance with artificial intelligence
Performance of these assets is enhanced by AI powered reports, notifications, and data sets, that help identify opportunities for improvement.
