“The decentralization and digitalization of the energy supply is advancing apace across the world. Against this background, the provision of up-to-date and precise generation and prosumer data as well as grid information is becoming increasingly important for an efficient, sustainable and secure energy supply and for the use of new business models,” said SMA Chief Excutive Officer Jürgen Reinert.
“We offer our customers comprehensive and tailored API-solutions, e.g., in the areas of grid operation management and planning, marketing of PV electricity and home energy management. In doing so, we use a database of more than 1.5 million connected devices that is unrivalled worldwide. Our data is particularly valuable where artificial intelligence, big data analytics and digital solutions are used to solve challenges in the energy industry,” added Jochen Bornemann, Executive Vice President Digital Center at SMA.
The services offered by SMA Energy Data Services include real-time prosumer data down to micro grid level, prosumer forecasts, grid state data and customer-specific data packages. Of course, SMA always takes care to protect its customers when supplying data. For example, the aggregation of current measurement data for PV power generation is based on postal code areas, which is an effective means of preventing the identification of individual systems. The transmission grid operator TenneT is already successfully using anonymized, real-time data from over 50,000 PV systems to integrate the PV electricity generated in its grid area smoothly and efficiently into the electricity grid.
You can find out everything about the solutions offered by SMA Energy Data Services from February 5 to February 7, 2019 at E-world in Essen, Germany, booth 2-314.
