Shaping digitalization together

Make the most of your data with the MindSphere Application Center for Energy Management

Today’s increasingly digitalized energy landscape generates vast amounts of data. However, fully exploiting this treasure with analysis and new digital offerings is a complex task. The MindSphere Application Center for Energy Management was created to support TSOs, DSOs, utilities, industries, and operators of buildings and infrastructures in developing data-based strategies that create added value – in business models, applications, solutions, and services using MindSphere, Siemens’ open, cloud-based IoT operating system.

The value of data

Unlock the potential of your energy data

Develop new approaches to improvement using your domain knowledge and Siemens’ technical expertise 

The data generated and collected at many points of the energy infrastructures, plus the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), are providing new opportunities for network analysis and transparent grid operation. They also allow for a substantial increase in asset availability and asset lifetime in each area of the energy landscape. 

At the same time, tools are available that help tackle challenges like ensuring consistent power quality and managing outages in transmission networks and distribution networks more efficiently, and ensuring system stability. In addition, grid integration of renewables, load and demand management, dealing with changing market conditions through improved consumer engagement and services. Moreover, completely new business models become possible. 

Understanding data is the key

Typical challenges that need to and can successfully be met by utilities and the field of power supply for industries, buildings, and infrastructures include supply reliability, energy efficiency improvements through the integration of production data and energy consumption, understanding the behavioral patterns of energy consumption, connected e-mobility, meter data management and analytics, and revenue protection.

Turning data and expertise into value

Making the optimal use of the available wealth of data presupposes asking the right questions and analyzing big data properly. This is where the MindSphere Application Center for Energy Management comes in: It brings experts from TSOs, DSOs, utilities, industries, buildings, and infrastructures together with Siemens domain experts to explore and co-create innovative digital use-cases and solutions – with the clear aim of turning data into value.

The co-creation platform

Space for impact

The MindSphere Application Center for Energy Management in Nuremberg, Germany, brings both Siemens and customer experts together for workshops and application development in a unique environment that’s conductive to generating innovation and new ideas.

Fostering new ideas and innovation

The design of the premises encourages spirited collaboration and an open exchange of ideas in a setting that’s specifically optimized to promote creative work and innovative thinking in workshops. It facilitates targeted application development and rapid prototyping.

This allows the collaborators to identify and co-create substantial new processes and make use of emerging technologies for numerous grid applications as well as for grid edge and vertical applications using state-of-the-art tools such as digital twins and sophisticated grid simulation. The focus of all workshops and further project support is on hands-on contributions to the creation of added value in an all-electric world. According to demand, workshops can take place on site, at the customer’s premises, and in other locations.
