Cutting edge technology that enables data and analytic intensive planning and forecasting
in2lytics’ unique capabilities were developed and forged in Hawaii’s energy system, a living laboratory that is a microcosm of complex energy systems. Hawaii has embarked on a radical transformation of its energy system to one that has extremely high levels of distributed and intermittent generation and distributed storage, demand-management and demand-response and energy efficiency technologies. As a result, in2lytics has developed cutting-edge technologies that enable data- and analytic-intensive planning and forecasting and instantaneous visibility and command-and-control for the next-generation (“smart”) electric grid. in2lytics is positioned to leverage these experiences and capabilities to electric grids across the globe.
Data-driven insight needed for improved planning and decision-making capabilities.
Knowledge that can be gained from grid data is critical for integrating renewables into the grid. It provides the insight needed to increase system availability while reducing operational expenditure. With in2lytics, the utility has the data-driven insight needed for improved planning and decision-making capabilities.
In2lytics is a brand new time series database technology with integrated tools for data analytics, data visualization, information sharing, and extensibility. The core in2lytics database is custom built and is not dependent on any existing commercial or open source database products. Developed specifically for efficient integration of multi-rate, multi-source time series data, in2lytics offers significant storage, performance, flexibility, and implementation cost advantages over existing solutions.
Helping transform Hawaii’s energy systems
Utilities in Hawaii have some of the highest penetration of distributed PV. In2lytics has been deployed at three of the local utilities, and is providing a database platform that integrates volumes of disparate data from distributed resources. In2lytics combines SCADA, AMI, irradiance, PV, Wind, and other data to provide new insights into their grid. Applications built on top of this database include modeling and forecasting, behind the meter PV estimation, customer support, curtailment and analytic applications. Results from these utilities show that the knowledge gained from the data is invaluable to understanding the impact of renewables on their grid and is giving them a complete AMI to substation view.
