Digitalization. Digital Transformation. Data 4.0. It doesn’t really matter what you call the latest trends in energy data analytics. What really matters to energy utilities is gaining the most value from the potential intelligence contained within their data streams. While much of the industry buzz is focused on data analytics, there needs to be a whole data ecosystem in place to support those analytics. As utilities are under increasing pressure to support electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, having the proper data infrastructure and analytics is essential to avoid delays and high costs for installing EV charging stations. E.ON, a major European utility, has been able to implement a complete data ecosystem to provide timely analytics and insights to support municipal planners in Germany focused on the development of EV charging infrastructure.
