luceo is excited to have been featured in a fantastic write-up from pv magazine Australia that discusses how the luceo platform helps electricity distributors manage consumer-oriented devices across low voltage networks.

Patrick Matweew, CEO of luceo, discusses how the cloud-based luceo Platform provides operators real-time visibility and critical insights from data the platform collects across the energy network to proactively control distributed loads and manage fleets of distributed renewable resources, such as rooftop solar.

“With the luceo energy platform, the network operators can now see in real-time what is happening within their network. Sounds simple but there are quite a lot of things to be looking into when thinking about the operation of the electricity network.” – Patrick Matweew

luceo’s software has also attracted the attention of the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) which has provided $2.6 million funding as part of a $5.7 million project which will see the company develop a proof-of-concept platform.

luceo will integrate data from network infrastructure, smart meters, and smart consumer-owned energy assets such as batteries and inverters to help distribution network service providers (DNSPs) overcome challenges associated with managing DER within low-voltage networks.

“The project could increase the value delivered by renewables by determining a sweet spot between investment in data monitoring and visibility of DER to ensure that the right level of investment is applied, ultimately benefiting all key stakeholders from DNSPs, regulators and ultimately the customer.” – Darren Miller, ARENA CEO
