Energy and Utilities

The industry has been in the middle of a huge transition driven by dwindling energy sources, rising energy demand, changing government policies, and increasing activism. Our solutions help customers improve reliability, efficiency and return on assets, and better engage customers. We also support our customers with real-time analytics to take control of grid data and implementation of enterprise applications. Marlabs’ solutions enable utilities to modernize their technology assets to support new business models while reducing cost. We can help with Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and its integration with distribution automation, building newer customer information systems, consumer portals, and meter data management. Marlabs provides end-to-end support throughout the ongoing transformation. We enable seamless integration of newer systems with legacy systems, supported by cyber-security solutions.

 

Marlabs helps utilities integrate demand response solutions to reduce peak energy consumption in the grid, which is a key feature of demand response systems. Informed demand response is a vital step to smart energy management. Marlabs' demand response solutions help increase system consistency and avoid blackouts, and enhance the capacity of electricity system delivery. Energy challenges today and tomorrow require a smart infrastructure that can address both. We help our customers capitalize on investments in new infrastructure in a more economical way.
 
Our solutions can efficiently manage the new challenges caused by the increase in sustainability programs, and growing number of regulations. The advancing smart grid will need demand response programs to accommodate these challenges. We help customers effectively and economically remove energy from the grid during peak times, and persuade consumers to take an active role in handling energy consumption. This helps utilities offer demand response capacity, boost their operations, and communicate with customers.

We build dashboards that provide customers with a snapshot view into the health of utility processes. Dashboards are the first line of access to business intelligence, making it the best way to analyze operations and performance. Operational dashboards handle daily business processes for different departments. This enables customers to identify and act on any issues swiftly and in real time. Sales, marketing, helpdesk, and supply chain are some of the departments that require immediate attention.
 
Operational dashboards require less training and eliminate the need to distribute reports. These are also suitable for business managers and workforce alike. Operational dashboards have a single data source and thereby increase the visibility of individual systems and applications. They are key tools in achieving business objectives.
