More than 700 employees working for national as well as international locations support far more than 1300 customers along the entire value-added chain: management of energy grids, costs, as well as geographical resources, solutions for IT security and data centre services as well as automatic meter reading, intelligent metering systems/smart metering and smart grids.
The energy transition needs smart grids
Demands on energy supply have changed remarkably over the last years. The number of plants generating electricity from renewables, for example, is increasing constantly as the energy transition continues. To integrate these plants into the grids is the challenge energy companies have to meet. They must not only deal with the renewables' dependency on the weather and high volatility, but also handle their direct connection to the low voltage grid which had not been designed to meet today's requirements. Nevertheless, secure energy supply as well as stable and economic grid operation must be guaranteed at any time. Smart grids demand for comprehensive solutions.
Intelligent grids require intelligent technology
Close interaction between measuring and communication technology as well as efficient network management is required to realize such highly complex and functional smart grids. Comprehensive solutions are required that are able to capture measuring values directly at generation or production and provide this data accordingly in real time.
