- SMUD: Energy delivery and customer experience
- NEC: Advanced technology manufacturing and integration
- Space-Time Insight: Advanced analytics and visualisation

“We're excited to help develop new technology that will make utilities more responsive, more efficient and ultimately able to deliver more value to their customers,” said Arlen Orchard, CEO and General Manager, SMUD.

“The development of new business models for utilities requires collaboration,” said Takemitsu Kunio, Senior Vice President, NEC. “Collaborating with industry leaders such as SMUD and Space-Time Insight enables us to meet and exceed the needs of utilities, their end users and regulators.”

“Analytics are at the heart of solutions in the IoT economy,” added Rob Massoudi, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Space-Time Insight. “Our analytics informed by SMUD’s experience and embedded in NEC solutions will drive innovation for the global utility sector.”

The three companies have already begun collaborating, with results expected in the US, Japan and the Asia Pacific region in 2016.
