Deploying IOT across an Enterprise

 

Con Edison is a pioneer utilizing data in near real time

con-edison-logo

Consolidated Edison, Inc., one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the United States, has taken steps over the past several years to digitalize its operating companies, leveraging open-source cloud-enabled technology to improve meter data, customer interface, transmission line management, and even manhole and worker safety. The advanced technology is not only helping ConEdison improve its operations and safety, it is also transforming how customers monitor their usage of electricity– contributing to cost savings and environmental benefits. By investing in its grid, ConEdison is building climate resilience and advancing electrification, positioning the company as a leading example of leveraging IoT to modernize our critical infrastructure. 

Siemens Advanta established a truly collaborative environment with its ‘One-Team’ approach. This approach helped us manage different workstreams effectively and ensured project success.

Meter Data Management (MDM)

ConEdison’s Meter Data Management System (MDMS) provides accurate billing of complex tariffs, greater operational efficiencies, and has improved service to ConEdison customers. Leveraging the Siemens EnergyIP’s Front End Processor, ConEdison is one of the first energy providers in the United States capable of recording and processing electric power meter data in near real-time, providing faster identification and response times for outages and critical safety alerts, including natural gas detection alerts.

Customer Information System (CIS)

As part of the MDMS work, Siemens Advanta supported the migration of ConEdison’s legacy customer system to an advanced CIS system. The project provided a single, unified solution that supports billing capabilities and customer care operations.

High Pressure Fluid Filled (HPFF) Transmissions

In this pilot program, Siemens Advanta provided ConEdison with a data driven solution to help detect leaks earlier and more accurately than the current methodology. The custom AI model, developed specifically for ConEdison, is a first of its kind utility leak detection approach. Leveraging data from past leaks to train the AI model, the system provided ConEdison with timely insight that a leak occurred.

Manhole Monitoring Program

ConEdison recently completed a pilot program supporting its Underground Distribution System assets. Specifically, the effort was a collaboration to enhance safety to the public walking the streets of NYC, where there are ~ 280,000 manholes, reducing the number of false positive alarms, improving safety, and reducing costs.
