We’ve been working with smart meter data since 2014 when our team came together at the University of Cambridge. Operating as the privately-sponsored Cambridge Energy Data Lab, we worked with academics, data scientists, and utility clients across the world to build and develop the next generation of data analytics tools and services that would capitalise on the growth of smart meter installations. In 2016, we saw an opportunity to combine our expertise into a single platform and SMAP Energy was born. We envisioned a single cloud-based system capable of analysing hundreds of millions of smart meters and continuously evolving to deploy new applications. Our role in the future energy system was to be the foundational element for accelerating all components of the digital transition. We’ve grown rapidly since then and have clients from all over the world subscribed to the platform. In the process, we’ve created not only a product capable of increasing operational efficiency, profitability, and end-customer satisfaction, but also an international community of like-minded innovators who want to push the boundaries of energy data analytics. As we move to the future, we want to accelerate the adoption of advanced “Energy AI” applications through our product offerings.
