Power generation

Distributed energy systems create extra value

In the wake of the ongoing decentralization of the energy system, more and more campuses are using local energy solutions to produce the electricity they need. But there’s even more in it: With the help of distributed energy systems, campuses gain more independence from energy suppliers and establish a highly sustainable, cost-efficient, and remarkably more resilient power supply. It even becomes possible for campuses to actively participate in the energy market, as any generated surplus can be fed into the power grid and sold to the market – an attractive opportunity to create additional revenue. 

Energy management

Microgrids for cost-effective, sustainable, reliable power

Microgrids contain all the elements of complex energy systems, they maintain the balance between generation and consumption, and they can operate on and/or off grid. More and more campus operators are using microgrids to produce the electricity they need cost-effectively, sustainably, and reliably.

Energy storage

Energy storage solutions for any requirements

Energy storage solutions for industry, infrastructure, and private individuals: fast, flexible and reliable.

eMobility

The brain of eMobility.

Considering the important role of eMobility within urban spaces like campuses, the infrastructure for electric mobility must satisfy the requirements of the grid, but also meet the needs of all the people operating in a modern mixed-use campus.

Grid connection and smart electrification

 

An effective, reliable, and safe power supply is the operational backbone of a campus. A smart electrification system covers everything from medium-voltage switchgear all the way to low-voltage switchboards and busbar trunking systems and makes use of smart software tools and applications.

Smart buildings

Increasing building performance, efficiency, and adaptability

We spend up to 90 percent of our lives in buildings, and we believe that everything people do in life deserves a perfect place to do it - smart buildings are an active contributor to the experience and success of its stakeholders.

Safety and security

Comprehensive protection for people and assets

Services

Analyzing and utilizing what buildings can share

Every system and component within the buildings of a smart campus creates numerous data that can be collected, analyzed, and used to gain actionable insights. Building Twin, the application of digital twins of buildings to provide relevant data across the building lifecycle, and BIM, a collaborative process that is the core for the digitalization of the construction industry, help create safe, efficient buildings that continuously interact, learn, and adapt to new requirements.

IoT infrastructure

Industrial production sites

Smart urban communities are autonomous living, business, and learning hubs that generate huge amounts of data. The holistic representation of these data provides fast and easy access to information and makes communities smarter, more resilient, sustainable, and future proof. This digital transformation is enabled by the right digitalization strategy, IoT devices, system integration, cloud computing, and analytical models.

Financing

Making investments easy

Campuses by their very nature have a difficult challenge of housing, catering and employing thousands of people at a time. Many are looking to smart technology to help them run more efficiently, reduce costs and better serve their inhabitants. Smart and flexible financing solutions are a key enabler to stay ahead of the curve.
