Tackle the challenges of decentralization and benefit from grid intelligence

Decentralization of power generation and an increasing demand for sustainability force energy management providers to rethink existing solutions. In the race for managing these complex challenges access to real-time data is a crucial success factor.


However, digitalization of smart grids and smart metering requires both, coordination of a high number of connected devices and considerable cybersecurity efforts. Only then, opportunities for grid asset management, remote plant management, service and predictive maintenance can be exploited.
