The energy system is experiencing systemic change. Generation is becoming decentralized and decarbonized with increased amounts of volatile renewable energy in the mix. Loads are becoming more flexible and grid operations more digitalized. To adapt and transform, Distribution System Operators (DSOs) require new capabilities to maintain and improve resiliency, flexibility, transparency and security. New solutions that help meeting these challenges are available and the key to unlock them lies in the intelligence at the edge of smart metering infrastructures.
How can utilities make intelligent use of their smart metering infrastructure? What are the benefits of analytics for typical processes in medium- and low-voltage networks? In times of increasing decentralization of generation across the distribution network, Landis+Gyr’s Advanced Grid Analytics software (AGA) offers multifaceted benefits.
