Big data analytics at the service of Endesa (ENEL Group) for more precise measurements and compliancy to new legislation.

Approach & Solution

Approach

Endesa, part of the ENEL Group, is the largest electricity company in Spain.
Following new regulations envisaged by Spanish legislation on the billing process for domestic consumption with the use of hourly electricity consumption, Endesa expressed the need to use a new system for the management of measures that centralizes measurement and consumption calculation operations for all types of meters.
To meet this challenge, the Spanish company relied on us at Engineering: we used our expertise on the emerging and innovative technologies of cloud and big data infrastructures for optimizing management of the large amount of data envisaged by the service.

Solution

For our solution we used a distributed architecture based on Cloudera technologies and hosting on Cloud AWS, through which we integrated:
  • Management system of mobile devices.
  • Consumption measurement systems (meters) and field surveys.
  • CUATRO commercial system.
  • Legacy billing systems.

  • Within these systems, many functional modules are envisaged, such as:
  • Reception of measurements (from several channels).
  • Technical validation of measurements.
  • Management of measurement anomalies.
  • Calculation of consumption.
  • Validation of consumption with business rules.
  • Sending to billing system.
  • Management of complaints from CUATRO.
  • Publication of measurements (Validated, Billed).
  • General functions / Taree management.
  • Process control (Management reporting).
  • Results

    Full compliance with regulatory KPIs

    Continuous detection for the B2B and B2C markets
