Osterhus asserts, “Our software forecasts and optimizes the planning and cost savings from the combinations of re- sources with a joint focus on both the grid and the supply at the same time.” The company’s ground breaking solution, their LoadSEER platform, provides comprehensive acre-level geo-spatial fore- casting solutions used for not only trans- mission and distribution planning, but for more granular and optimized location of solar, storage, demand response and other demand-side management (DSM) measures. It integrates a utility’s planning silos and data sources, to provide distribution planners, marketers, and supply planners with a more integrative toolset.

One of Integral Analytics’ clients, Pacific Gas & Electric, appreciated the company’s sophistication for assisting them to overcome economic and capacity risks that surpassed their existing processes, and enabled to additional integration of value and risks emerging from the advance of micro grids, solar, DG, EV and the Smart Grid push which was making the job of the distribution planner increasingly complex. Integral Analytics addressed the scenario and deployed its LoadSEER solution into the client’s business matrix that modulated the overall planning system with much more accurate acre-level granularity, comprehensive statistical forecasting algorithms, and powerful GIS engines. This helped the client to increase their efficiency and cost savings upto five percent, which is a significant savings when applied to multi-million dollar capital spend budgets.
