Networked data for

Smart Energy


Using data for a smart energy supply

Private households, transport, industry and companies need a reliable and affordable energy supply. Climate change and global political events require a timely switch from fossil fuels to renewable energies. However, these are currently not yet available in sufficient quantities. Cities and communities therefore need efficient, energy-saving and networked solutions to sustainably reduce energy consumption. Utility providers play an important role here because their infrastructure provides access to almost every company and private household. With the help of smart meters, municipal utility providers obtain more precise consumption data and can thus calculate their power procurement more accurately. Thanks to smart meters, consumers can keep an eye on their consumption around the clock and can identify "power guzzlers.

The Internet of Things (IoT), sensors and data collected and processed by artificial intelligence (AI) will increasingly support municipalities in implementing smart energy goals in the future.

Living together will be improved through smart energy concepts

Municipal utilities are faced with the task of providing the cheapest possible electricity in sufficient quantities. Exactly where it is needed at the time. Critical infrastructures such as retirement homes or hospitals need a reliable supply of electricity even at morning peak loads. Private households can support municipalities in this task. For this purpose, household appliances with smart electricity meters switch on automatically during the course of the day if there is sufficient supply and energy costs are low. Smart and networked wallboxes -domestic charging stations- use excess capacity to charge e-cars and discharge them when power demand increases and they are not in use. But municipal electricity providers will also become even more flexible in responding to real time demand and favorable electricity rates. Using networked data, they will automatically disconnect unused energy consumers at peak times and only reconnect them when the supply of electricity is higher than the current demand. 


The environment wins through smart energy concepts

With locally generated electricity, municipalities can minimize their supply costs. They produce exactly the energy that their citizens and the companies in the region consume. With photo-voltaic modules on the roofs of residential buildings, this electricity can be produced area-wide for self-consumption. Individual surpluses are fed into the local power grid. This is based on monitoring systems that analyze data from private power producers, available storage capacities and weather forecasts and link them to local demand. This energy supply leads to more climate neutrality and independence from central suppliers.


Mobility is improved through smart energy concepts

E-mobility continues to advance and is becoming part of a municipality's energy management. Electric cars are not only consumers of electrical energy. They can also be used as "energy providers" to store excess capacity and compensate for under capacity. A close-knit charging network for electric cars increases their acceptance. For this purpose, smart lampposts can be used as charging stations and integrated into the energy management system.


Our solution is called

For all these innovations, data is collected in real time in the smart city, analyzed and processed with AI. In general, this data must not serve an end in itself, but exclusively for the common good. This needs a public-welfare oriented data ecosystem. Based on open interface standards, our municipal data platform provides support as a unified, secure and sovereign data space.
