Varying temperatures, a growing population and a changing energy landscape are driving electricity demand higher and higher. This puts more pressure on aging electric grids, causing brownouts, blackouts and forced electricity shortages at peak times and an increase in consumption costs. New technologies are critical to helping power producers and end users better manage, demand and facilitate a reliable electrical grid. This helps ensure consistent availability of electricity and mitigates negative effects of energy generation that can contribute to climate change. NEC’s “Insight-O-Meter” is a groundbreaking prediction tool that enables end users to take control of their energy use by providing data that can help reduce their energy footprint and save money. With electricity grids stressed to the max amid record summer heat levels or winter heating needs, NEC’s Insight-O-Meter addresses utility challenges holistically, developing technologies to overcome the challenges of a changing climate and grid. For utility providers, the benefit is multifold. The Insight-O-Meter's energy dashboard can compare energy consumption to generation, increasing the ability to adjust generation accordingly and help roll out a time-of-use plan. Insight-O-Meter similarly opens a new world for consumers. By providing key operational insights on their energy consumption through a digital channel, users can cut electricity costs and help ensure energy is reliable and dependable.
