C3 Energy, a smart grid analytics software provider, has launched C3 Energy Revenue Protection. According to the company, the solution integrates data from utilities' advanced metering infrastructure with data from multiple utility systems and third-party data sources to identify suspicious energy usage and enable utilities to reduce revenues lost from energy theft and malfunctioning meters.

C3 Energy Revenue Protection, the first offering in the company's suite of C3 Energy Grid Analytics SaaS software solutions, applies analytics to customer energy consumption data to pinpoint patterns indicating unbilled energy use, necessary maintenance repairs and potential safety issues, such as high meter temperatures and under-voltage or over-voltage situations.

"C3 Revenue Protection represents an important first step in helping utilities realize the economic value of their smart grid deployments and could reduce unbilled energy losses by as much as $5-10 per meter,” says Ed Abbo, C3 Energy president and chief technology officer.
