The problem

The increasing adoption of renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, and other electrified devices is putting new demands on the electricity grid and electrical supply chain. Distribution companies need to be able to monitor and manage energy production and consumption at the edge of the grid in real-time to ensure grid reliability and stability.

Additionally, producers will have new opportunities to sell excess energy back to the grid, creating a more dynamic and decentralised energy system.

At the same time, transmission system operators will need to plan and build transmission infrastructure that is optimised for the renewable energy system, taking into account cost, reliability, and efficiency considerations.

Our team is dedicated to helping you decarbonise and reach your net zero targets by optimising energy use, electrical supply chains and helping you play your role in the e-mobility equation.
