Stonehaven Technology as a Data Partner with Electralink, have been invited to present on the company's work on Smart Meter Installation Failure Analysis and Embedded Renewable Electricity Analysis. We will show opportunities to bring down the meter installation failure rate from 13 in every 100 installations through the use of an integrated data approach and provide a quick review of our research and development project in the analysis of Embedded Renewable Electricity generation.
Understanding the Risk of Smart Meter Installation Failure by Geography
In 2016, Stonehaven Technology took part in a collaborative academic research project with the School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering at Loughborough University. The success of the project was such that the Student leading the project, was subsequently taken on as a full time employee by Stonehaven Technology.
Being based at the University of Essex affords Stonehaven Technology natural opportunities for academic collaboration. In 2015, the Essex Business School building opened, a unique zero-carbon building, complete with a trading floor mock up. The core themes of the MBA are; entrepreneurship, innovation, internationalisation and sustainability and this attract students from countries all over the world. Today, Jonathan Crook, a Director of Stonehaven Technology presented a number of the company’s enterprise software applications and explained how businesses achieved benefits through their use. Jonathan also articulated the advantages for both businesses and academia in conducting collaborative research and presented a specific current opportunity the company has for a research project.

Stonehaven Technology are currently undertaking a number of research and development projects and encourage Students and Universities who wish to collaborate, to get in touch.
Stonehaven Technology attended an Innovation Meeting at the Digital Catapult at King’s Cross, London and presented on our development of enterprise applications. Interesting to note the number of companies with an interest in the Health Sector and a great view!

Through the support of the Enterprise Europe Network East of England, Stonehaven Technology obtained an Innovator Stand at the Utility Week show in Barcelona. The show presented a fantastic opportunity for Stonehaven Technology to exhibit its work in Smart Meter Installation Analytics, its Flood and Extreme Weather Risk Management Enterprise Application and its Asset Management Application for Utility Companies. A range of well-established and innovative companies were present, providing many opportunities for animated conversation.

No matter the European country, all Utilities have a regulatory responsibility to mitigate the risk of flooding and extreme weather and to reduce the physical risk to assets to be as low as reasonably possible. The growing numbers of Smart Meters across Europe is demonstrative of the increased tempo of the transition to a smart grid, which in turn will bring more complexity and the need for digitised processes.
For the past two days, Stonehaven Technology has been exhibiting their Flood and Extreme Weather Risk Management Software Application at the 2016 Flood Expo, held at the Excel Centre, London Docklands. The Expo was the first opportunity for Stonehaven Technology to demonstrate the Enterprise version of the Application and take feedback from organisations and individuals involved in flood risk management and resilience.
Jonathan Crook, a Director of Stonehaven Technology, also gave a centralised talk on the importance of organisations rapidly developing a collective understanding of the nature and scale of a flood incident and the value of using historical and modelled data to conduct scenario planning to achieve greater levels of resilience within an organisation.

A number of organisations who received a demonstration of the Flood and Extreme Weather Risk Management Software Application commented on the impressive number of integrated sources of data, the advanced visualisations and the overall ease of use. The application has been developed around the experiences of Utility Companies and Retailers of major flood and resilience related incidents of the past few years.
The changing climate means that the UK is experiencing more dramatic flooding from rivers and seas and a greater frequency of surface and ground water flooding incidents, which occur as consequences of torrential rain.
