NarrativeWave, Invenergy Announce Three-Year Energy IoT Deal

To maximize productivity for North America’s largest privately-held renewable energy fleet


Invenergy, North America’s largest independent, privately-held renewable energy company, and NarrativeWave, an Irvine-based Internet of Things software company, announced a three-year agreement. Invenergy will use NarrativeWave’s software to optimize its fleet of wind turbines and other renewable energy assets.

The announcement follows a successful 60-day pilot, where Invenergy proved out two use cases for their operations. The first use case focused on Reducing Lost Production. The second use case focused on Reducing Unscheduled Downtime, accomplished by empowering mechanical, electrical, and turbine performance subject matter experts (SMEs) to rapidly build analytic models and deploy them across a fleet of turbines without the need for data scientists.

Through these pilots, operators in the 24/7 Invenergy Control Center (ICC) used NarrativeWave to fully automate time-consuming manual processes and accelerate return-to-service times on wind turbines, in some cases by more than 50 percent.

For example, previously, when high generator bearing temperatures caused a turbine fault, a control room operator would log into a web page and manually analyze a host of temperature, wind speed and power production variables to decipher the next course of action. With NarrativeWave, this process was fully automated, providing the operator a recommendation in mere seconds.
