Big data meets Texas smart energy grid
IBM and Oncor, Texas' largest electric distribution company, are using big data technology to manage an intelligent power grid that will run more than 3.2 million smart electrical meters in the state by the end of the year. The advanced metering system gives Oncor near-real-time information on billions of data measurement points, including machine-to-machine sensors, advanced meters, and power lines. The project also provides a Web-based interface where Oncor customers can monitor their energy usage.
