Energy Utilities

  • At a German Distribution System Operator (DSO), the ability to leverage data in order to gain new insights has led to better grid stability and improved technical maintenance, and - as a final result - the minimization of the risks of black-outs.
  • An Italian Energy Utility was able to minimize penalties and to save costs in energy procurement by 15 % in the first 12 months.
  • A German Electric Utility saved 21 % of its wholesale costs by applying predictive analytics to anticipate load forecasts.
  • One of the largest Austrian power traders achieved costs savings in the range of 18 % per year since using KISTERS Data Analytics.

Water Utilities

  • One of the largest Water Supply companies in Europe saved 20 % just by analysing how energy was used over the last 12 months.
  • A South European Water Utility decreased business risk and saved energy costs through the use of KISTERS’ optimization algorithms for its pumping scheduling.
  • A large North American Water Treatment Plant Utility improved operational effectiveness by 30 % based on time saved to generate compliance reports.

Air Quality Monitoring

  • Many citizens ask themselves the question whether it is safe to breathe today. Data analytics helps finding clarity amid the smog by publishing air quality indicators for cities.
  • Several regional environmental agencies produce reports compliant with national and EU legislation in a largely automated process.
  • In the most popoulus Australian State, citizens are effectively warned about threshold exceedance by means of free warning messages through SMS, email and mobile app.
  • Regional EPA’s in New Zealand and Germany automate the process of publishing processed data on open data platforms.

Water Management & Environmental Monitoring

  • A main Swiss authority prevented citizens from exposing themselves to contaminated swimming water after an industrial accident.
  • At a Dutch Water Board KISTERS Data Analytics improved procedures and shortened reaction times to trigger contingency plans, thus saving millions of euros of material damage during the last two flood events.
  • At a European Flood Forecast Center advanced and adaptive statistical forecast algorithms deliver an additional valuable and accurate forecast to the classical flood forecast models.

Traffic & Logistics

  • The port companies at a large European Port Authority increased their effi ciency by 27 %, because on a daily basis over 100,000 truck trips are flowing through the harbor in an optimized way.
