The way the world uses energy is changing.
Motivated by sustainability concerns and increasing efficiency, more people are adopting smart home technologies, electric vehicles and eco-friendly energy sources. This has driven power and utilities companies to provide innovative, connected solutions to their customers.
Consumers and businesses alike want to monitor, manage and predict their energy consumption, and this presents a number of unique security and efficiency concerns.
ThirdSpace understands these challenges and how they can be exacerbated by far-reaching and often complex legislation, not to mention an increasingly competitive marketplace.
Our tailor-made solutions are designed to help businesses in the power and utilities sector provide the best services they can, securely and efficiently.
The European Commission predicts around 200 million smart meters will be installed by 2020. If each device sends a meter reading to its provider every half an hour, some 9.6 billion readings will be generated every day.
That’s an unprecedented amount of energy data that needs to be securely managed by the power industry.
Cyber-crime within the energy sector is a growing concern.
Three in five businesses say they’d switch provider if their energy company was affected by a cyber-attack, and companies that don’t take adequate security measures can face huge fines, not to mention significant reputational damage.
Our solutions ensure your systems are secure, compliant and future-proof.
Disruptive technologies within the energy sector – from smart devices to predictive algorithms – have created a vast range of challenges for companies in the power and utilities sector. ThirdSpace understands how to turn these into opportunities.
From moving energy trade and risk management (ETRM) software into the cloud, to product diversification and partnership prospects, we can help your company maximise its service offering efficiently, competitively and securely.
Cloud computing offers many compelling opportunities for the power and utilities industry, including bringing new business models to market quickly, supporting maintenance and operational teams over dispersed geographical areas, and offering data storage for smart grid and other storage-intensive applications.
Cloud applications provide scalable capacity for applications such as outage management, power trading and risk analytics. But these opportunities demand strong security.
Microsoft Azure is the cloud platform of choice for leading utilities. Microsoft’s deep focus on security makes Azure just as safe – if not safer – than most on-premises setups. The Azure solution addresses three of the sector’s most significant concerns: security, sovereignty and compliance. And because Azure can integrate with existing on-premises investments, utility companies can get started maintaining secure, reliable operations even faster.
ThirdSpace can help you maximise energy infrastructure opportunities, manage regulatory requirements and address increasingly complex gaps in security provision.
