Digitization Strategy - Lessons learnt and results from development of an IoT and Data Analytics platform for Energy Forecasting and Utility Asset Performance Management

Event Type Start Time End Time
Webex 4 Nov 2021 - 1:00 PM CDT 4 Nov 2021 - 2:00 PM CDT


In this talk, we will share lessons and results acquired over the past three years, concerning the development of an IoT- and Data science Platform. As a municipal energy provider, we are confronted with the trend of digitization and the resulting disruptive business models. Customer now ask for renewable energies and want to be self-sufficient or be an active part of the energy system leading to energy communities.

On the other hand, we must deal with the German energy transition to renewables and the increase in decentralized and small energy producers (like PV power). Renewable energy is very volatile und thus we need solutions which enables us to automatically monitor, analyze, forecast and control many thousand small energy producer and consumer in an optimal way. Use cases like forecasts, predictive maintenance or real-time energy markets and virtual powerplants will be discussed.
