Improving reliability and asset utilization are the key challenges for energy utilities. In the face of intensifying consumer demand and public regulations, the industry is implementing new measures, from smart grids to distribution automation and improved security.

Main Drivers to ICT Energy and Smart Grids

  • Rising Environmental Awareness
  • Growing Energy Demand
  • Higher Energy Prices
  • Aging Infrastructure

Smart Grids for a smarter future

Utilities across the globe are under increasing pressure to meet the increasing demand for more and cleaner energy at lower cost. Other challenges include ensuring the security and independence of energy supply, while generating a larger percentage of power from renewable energy sources.

Bi-directional smart grid network - from generation points to consumers.

A smart grid enables real-time end-to-end control of the entire value chain, from power generation, to transmission, to distribution, to consumption.

Smart grids can help utilities provide energy generation on demand as well as reduce peak loads through intelligent energy consumption. Furthermore, smart grids and meters with two-way communications enable utilities to be more customer centric, allowing more direct consumer integration with energy markets.

  • Reduce complexity
  • Control costs
  • Manage the traffic/consumption explosion
  • Drive environmental sustainability
  • Greater transparency to consumers about their energy consumption.

Smart grid solutions

Smart grid networks and smart metering will require an integrated and high-availability communication solution in parallel to the energy grid to set up demand-response principles. Communications solutions also need to cover a much wider geographical area than previously, requiring extensive use of wireless networks.

Our expertise in communications infrastructure guaranties solutions that help:

  • Manage capacity,
  • Improve efficiency,
  • Help end-customers manage their energy use,
  • Enable electric vehicle battery charging,
  • Mobility management,
  • Integrate distributed power sources.

Communication solutions include a comprehensive connectivity infrastructure, including carrier Ethernet, microwave radio, optical transport, and wireless.

The consumer side is served by a customizable rating and billing solution. Giving two-way communication with the consumer, it allows the electricity provider to manage customer tariffs, offers and pricing. These could include time-of-use tariffs, prepaid energy and other new energy services.
