Analytics for Smart Water and Energy Meters

We focus on green analytics, or how we can use analytical techniques to better sustain and protect our planet. We are active in water management, specifically identifying water disruptions, waste, leaks, and other environmentally important issues, deduced by deep analysis of readings from smart water meters. In addition, we are active in analysis of energy consumption data originating from smart meters. In particular, we have experience in anomaly detection and various types of frauds (tampering, bypass etc) of electricity consumption data. We were members of a European consortium, aiming to anticipate possible electricity disruptions and inefficiencies by analyzing the massive data recorded by electricity sensors throughout the smart grid network.
