Energy Accounting

It’s a supreme challenge for energy companies to account for all the megawatt-hours inside and outside of their systems, particularly with the vast amount of data involved. 

PCI’s Energy Accounting solution tracks, calculates, and verifies energy volumes to improve meter data quality and simplify workflows.  It specifically manages, automates, and streamlines the calculation and validation of generation and load meters, interchange schedules (tie-line flows) in and out of defined areas, and helps identify potential meter errors.

Hosted or on-premise deployment options are available, depending on which one best fits your company’s needs and its current (or planned) IT infrastructure.  PCI Energy Accounting provides an array of benefits that drive high ROI and optimize your organization’s bottom-line:
