Ensuring quality of supply and grid resilience is vital to reliable and efficient supply of electricity. However, maintaining high-quality power delivery and a resilient grid can get tricky in an increasingly complex and dynamic grid that needs to accommodate renewables, EV charging and high activity from prosumers. How can grid planners and network operators achieve their goals of maintaining a safe, reliable and resilient grid ? In this blog, we highlight seven ways how a grid monitoring service can help.
We spent the final week of November at Frankfurt attending Enlit Europe 2022, a major European energy event following COP27 focused on stories of people, projects, and technologies driving the energy transition. From the various conversations, hub sessions and summit keynotes and panels we take a lot of learnings back with us. Here is a quick snapshot of our top takeaways.
The digitalization of the energy industry has led to a convergence of operational and informational technologies across metering infrastructures worldwide. This OT/IT convergence brings with it all the benefits of the connected, IoT era such as personal energy management insights, automated energy management and grid transparency. However it has also resulted in increasingly complex OT/IT ecosystems creating with new areas of vulnerability and increasing exposure to attacks.
For decades Germany has played a pioneering role in transforming the way energy is generated, distributed and consumed in Central Europe. Thus it should come as no surprise that a major utility company in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg is leading the trend to increased digitization in the energy market.
Grid digitization offers utilities the chance to redefine their business models by improving their internal operations and the services they deliver to end consumers.
Landis+Gyr, a global leader in energy management solutions, has taken part in the 2016 edition of the InnoGrid2020+ conference co-organized by the European Distribution System Operators organization for Smart Grids (EDSO for smart grids) and the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) which took place in Brussels on 27- 28 June. Innogrid2020+ is the annual premium event in the electricity sector where over 300 policy makers, representatives from the industry, research and development and other energy associations engage in a debate about the future of the power system. This year’s discussions evolved around digitization and its impact on the energy sector.
