Authorities responsible for supplying electricity need to optimise the resources available and maintain infrastructure to do so. Relevant decision makers and operations personnel need to be equipped with up to date information that enables them to execute effective and efficient electricity demand management. IMQS has developed a proven software solution, namely the Electricity Demand Management Information System (ELIFT). The fundamental information required to calculate electricity demand comes from a Municipal Treasury Database (or similar source of data) where monthly electricity meter readings are stored along with stand related information. Once the results have been generated by the engineering software, ELIFT can display customisable views on the data and deliver relevant information based on a person’s role in the electricity demand cycle.
