Smart Grids

Existing energy supply structures are increasingly being interwoven with and complemented by multi-layer, cellular and smart networks. Thanks to intelligent information and communication technology (ICT), power generators, networks of all types, storage facilities and prosumers – consumers who themselves generate and store energy – are being integrated across all utility services, energy forms and timeframes.

Our smart grids projects range from strategic consultancy for governments, public authorities and industrial partners, through integration concepts for individual components, like energy storage, networks, flexible loads and generator modules, up to asset management analyses for incorporating new technology modules into existing infrastructures, specific network analyses, and planning.

Additionally we assist our clients in selecting and implementing IT solutions for smart grids, like state-of-the-art grid control systems, microgrid controllers, virtual power plants and intelligent measurement systems (paying special attention to smart metering) while considering all critical and current security requirements.
