Smart Grid

With the gradual introduction of smart metering elements, the much anticipated smart grid is becoming a reality. The current infrastructure is evolving into a multi-directional and dynamic system that will be the base for managing centralized and decentralized generation. At the same time the smart grid will increase the transparency to all stakeholders striving for a balanced and sustainable energy use.

+ Makes renewable power feasible

Smart grid systems can manage diverse and strategically scattered renewable power sources (wind farms, solar plants and hydro stations).

 

+ Optimizes the network

Direct communication with end-user equipment reduces consumption during peak periods and minimizes the need for costly standby power plants.

 

+ Handles increasing energy demand

Since the system is already strained to near capacity, smart grid improvements are crucial to support the long-term trend of stable electricity consumption growth.

 

+ Overhauls the ageing equipment

By updating the infrastructure, the safety standards continue to be met, power is delivered consistently, and the system is managed efficiently.

 

+ Facilitates real-time troubleshooting

With real-time data at hand, problem solving can begin immediately - this improves the network`s efficiency and reduces operational costs.

 

+ Enables electric vehicle charging

An increasing number of electric vehicle owners need a reliable, low-cost way to recharge anytime and anywhere, and a network able to handle their rising demand.
