Data management and Energy control
Radio waves to the cloud
Thanks to our in-house monitoring platform, we have optimized services for managing a PV power plant. Through dedicated communication protocols and analytical algorithms, we collect and process information on inverters, energy meters and weather sensors independently of manufacturer platforms. All of your plants will be accessible from our single unified platform.
Thanks to early warning systems, we monitor for both short-term breakdown as well as long-term degradation effects such as failing, hot spots or cracks.
With our advanced AI algorithms developed together with our partners, we can forecast production output. As it is important to keep the grid in a constant balance of supply and demand, the market requires that consumers and producers communicate their intended offtake or injection well in advance. When users do not comply with their initial energy budget, they are forced to purchase energy on the ‘imbalance market’. This is a short-term ’15-minute’ market for buying and selling energy.
We can work together with your energy department to keep these costs as low as possible by estimating the solar plant’s energy production in advance through AI models.
We can even go one step further: thanks to remote and/or automatic energy steering, we can further optimize production to meet your requirements.
On energy trading markets, prices can go negative when there’s an overabundance of energy (i.e. sunny and windy weekends). Stricter policies and rising imbalance costs can now also be addressed through energy steering. You can set timeslots when the power plant should be restricted, or you can have our AI decide on the optimal restriction time with market prices as input.
When desired, we can keep you updated with monthly mail reports stating production numbers, performance ratios, availability percentages, and more.
We centralize all data feeds related to the plant, and if desired the main grid meter, in our platform. This allows you and your energy department to poll data automatically through our set of APIs or through our Excel download feature to deep dive and analyse energy flows.
This is useful for handling invoicing, cost reduction, energy optimization, etc.
