The future of technology is data: its collection, quality control and analysis for not only discovering current and historical usage patterns and trends but predicting and planning for future needs. A rapidly growing number of utilities and industries are deploying sensors to collect this information to monitor and track their consumption to empower better decisions. Processing these volumes of data to create truly valuable and usable results to elevate and enrich decision making, requires specialized analytical algorithms. Businesses that fail to adopt these technologies risk competitive disadvantage by ignoring the intelligence that their own data holds.

In recognition of this new paradigm, in 2016 the founders of Voltaric set out to create a dynamic, cloud-based data analytics software platform harnessing the power of cloud computing to deliver actionable insights of energy conservation and optimization for LDC’s and large users of electricity by taking advantage of leading edge technology. Utilizing their extensive experience in consulting in the utility, financial and automation sectors, the principals laid the groundwork for two products, Volt and VFI, which collect and analyze sensor data collected from smart meters and industrial controls to reveal historical energy trends and predict future demand and device performance.
