A PROVEN SOLUTION FOR ALL UTILITY COMPANIES
Throughout the years MECOMS solutions have been implemented at water, gas, electricity and district heating companies and this for all kinds of company roles (suppliers, grid operators, producers, integrated companies,…). Based on this experience, MECOMS products have gained broad and deep functionality, incorporating specific requirements for all these commodities. By integrating best practices from diverse companies from different industries, all MECOMS customers benefit alike.
Water companies are increasingly subject to mergers, acquisitions and privatisations, which forces continuous reorganisation to achieve optimal scale and integration of the entire water cycle.
The MECOMS Billing engine natively deals with complex situations such as unmetered connections and makes it possible to calculate charges based on the number of taps, inhabitants or any other parameter.
Many countries are introducing district heating and cooling systems to help provide a cleaner environment and exploit the surplus energy of waste incarnation processes.
Thermal companies are often firmly embedded into local society, and customer satisfaction is of foremost importance. MECOMS Contract Management provides flexibility to deal with any number of customers, without losing track of their peculiarities.
Despite environmental concerns, consumption of electricity keeps rising everywhere.
Many governments promote green alternatives and demand-side management, which requires smart grids with distributed production environments.
Meanwhile, the first large-scale smart meter roll-outs are taking place. Nevertheless, utilities will still need to deal with a legacy of historical meter parks for a long time.
MECOMS is capable of simultaneously handling manual, automatic and smart meters, enabling a gradual upgrade of the existing infrastructure.
While the gas market has some similarities with the electricity market, the differences are considerable.
The transported energy of gas depends on the calorific value, quality, temperature and pressure of the gas. Furthermore, liquefied gas can be stored and carried, creating an entirely different market dynamic.
MECOMS has been implemented at gas companies in several countries. The gas market blueprint is designed to handle all specific aspects of this complicated business natively.
