A utility smart meter records consumption of electric energy and communicates the information to the electricity supplier for billing. There are over 135 million utility smart meters in the US alone, each generating up to 400 megabytes per year, for a total of 54 petabytes of new utility data annually. Utility network analysts and power utility companies combine this big data with billions more rows of additional IoT and smart sensor data, but their utility data analysis platforms are not fast enough at scale.
