Utilities are changing the way they do business. Radically different network architectures and increasing customer expectations present challenges that haven’t been seen before.
The need to manage new, de-centralized networks of distributed assets while enabling monetization of both those assets and new services driven by digitization is critical for future success. DigitalRoute technology empowers this and additionally helps utilities reuse legacy investments by consolidating multiple system outputs into one horizontal layer.
Modernizing the Technology Infrastructure
Real-time data management supports the transition to a Digital Energy Network leading to new business opportunities and operational excellence
Swiss energy leader Alpiq uses DigitalRoute’s IoT Platform to navigate its way through the dramatically changing utilities landscape in which it competes. Managing a handful of “heavy” devices as in the past has been replaced by the need to optimize literally hundreds of smaller network assets and the historical day/hour approach to doing this has been supplanted by real-time, in stream processing requirements. Christian Jacobsson PhD, Alpiq’s Head of Optimisation Core discusses the new energy infrastructure and how Alpiq is driving digitization of its business with DigitalRoute’s Jonas Wejdin.
