The Forecaster computes stochastic energy forecasts to simplify how energy retailers and grid operators manage the aggregated energy production and consumption.
This solution can improve the performance of Energy Suppliers, Distribution System Operators, and, in general, aggregators.
This module also helps to boost trading performance and grid stability, using machine learning and hierarchical stochastic methods.
What’s more, it features a simple interface with a blend of distinct, bold colors to make it quicker to read and interpret. The results of the forecasts can be easily connected to other tools through APIs.
Operators often find it challenging to manage their hydropower plants optimally. This problem is not because of a lack of goals. On the contrary, operators need useful tools to achieve their goals, and integrate hydropower plants into their fleet.
The Hydro module helps bridge the gap with innovative features that help operators take total charge of the following operations:
Stabilising grids and avoiding congestions
Energy trading on the spot market
The Smart Pricer revolutionizes the conventional tariff scheme used by Energy Suppliers and DSOs. With the tool’s capabilities to perform peak-shaving, load-shifting, and more, it quickly generates a pricing profile for each day, 24 hours ahead.
What’s more, Smart Pricer also helps operators:
Limit grid congestions optimizing the EV charging profiles with smart tariff schemes
Avoid over-voltages during solar production and periods when demand is limited
Enable saving for the end-users that can be flexible
Smart metering systems are typical to fall short in communication and provide inaccurate data due to measurement errors. Though this issue has lingered for as long as smart meters started becoming popular, our solution is a game-changer for customers with features that:
Improve the accuracy of energy production and consumption data
Allow a faster access to grids state information
Enable new billing schemes
Grid Modeller is an innovative tool to help operators venture into new business models in the electric grids market. They can create reliable simulations of future scenarios for distribution grids, including higher penetrations of solar energy, heat-pumps and electric vehicles.
The tool can use data-driven information to perform techno-economic analysis of new business models, including vehicle to grid, novel pricing schemes, demand-side management models, and other innovative methods to improve energy trading and grid performance.
An easy-to-use coordination platform for energy communities. Our Community Manager module uses a blockchain-automated local flexibility market, which integrates different electric grids layers to simplify grid management for operators and retailers.
Thanks to optimal management of flexible devices, such as EVs, heat pump and water heating boilers, the Community Manager module will improve the community self-consumption, providing economic benefits to final users, without affecting their comfort.
The aggregator of Energy Communities can have a detailed overview of their performance and optimise their management.
Grid Diagnostics module uses AI to detect and prevent grid issues at the distribution level. Detect problems early and forecast those that can aggravate bigger issues if not controlled. Some common issues the Grid Diagnostics module can help you discover early in your distribution stations are:
Over-voltages during solar production
Congestions from EV charging
Anomalous energy losses
Support for planning in grid refurbishment.
Our Users Diagnostics module helps prosumers and consumers detect issues that can escape being discovered by the smartest minds, using a combination of smart metering datasets, weather data, and machine learning.
Some of the common issues Users Diagnostics can detect are:
Anomalous energy consumption from heat pumps due to inefficient or inadequate dimensioning.
Unusually high standby power and unexpected peaks.
Significant changes in consumption levels.
Our tool leverages the current infrastructure and does not require installing new gateways or perform on-site visits.
Flexibility is becoming the most valuable asset in the energy production/consumption framework. This tool will optimise a set of different devices that can be remotely steered, to improve the performance of the aggregators, without affecting the comfort of the final users. These devices include:
Electric Vehicles charge/discharge, including V2G
Heat pumps and air conditioning
Electric heaters for domestic hot water
Any industrial load that can be shifted in time
