Digital Technologies & Innovation

Artificial intelligence steers the energy business toward the future

The international energy markets are becoming increasingly digital and connected. Digital Technologies & Innovation is actively driving forward this development for all the players connected to the electricity grid. Our products and services are based on state-of-the-art methods for real-time solutions and on artificial intelligence.

load control and management

We transform technology into innovation

We combine real-time data management and algorithms with our decades of experience in the energy market. You too can benefit from our digital knowledge, our industrial experience and flexibility.

Digital knowledge

With our extensive portfolio of algorithms, products and services, we connect the entire energy ecosystem and offer our customers individually customised digital solutions.

Industrial experience

With our experience in energy generation, energy trading and building technology we cover multiple aspects of the energy business offering comprehensive added value across the entire value chain.

Flexibility

Our approach and solutions are flexible. We connect decentralised energy generation units and put their flexibility to use. Our dynamic products are designed to achieve cost reduction, profit maximisation and the facilitation of smart grids.

The network that thinks – our Energy AI

Our integrated Energy AI platform processes information in real time. It collects data from energy generation units and information relating to prices, markets, the weather, processes and the grid. The Energy AI platform provides forecasts and decision alternatives or even makes decisions on its own. On this basis, it controls, facilities and manages storage capacities. The added value it provides benefits households, companies, energy suppliers, grid operators and power plant operators. We customise our solutions to fit our customers’ requirements or work together with customers to develop new solutions.

Home Solutions

We offer prosumer households solutions for energy consumption management, energy cost reduction, charging infrastructure for e-vehicles, monitoring of solar units and energy storage solutions.

Enterprise Solutions

Industrial companies rely on our know-how and range of solutions for the monitoring and forecasting of electricity generation and consumption as well as for enhanced market access or the possibility for peak shaving and the trading of flexibility.

Dynamic charging solutions

For municipalities and companies, we install the complete technical and digital e-mobility infrastructure, including the process management system and an access and accounting system for the end customers.

Asset management solutions

We offer energy suppliers and traders, power plant operators and operators of distribution grids and transmission grids portfolio management services, asset monitoring, asset management solutions as well as forecasts and optimisation in real time.

Supplier solutions

For energy suppliers and retailers, we offer a package of solutions that reduces the increasing complexity of the market and opens up new opportunities for the end customer. Amongst other things, the package includes an off-the-shelf solution for energy retailers and real-time consumption forecasting.

Energy AI uses multiple data sources and combines some of our own solutions from GridSense – a service provider for state-of-the-art smart home and smart grid technologies, Xamax – the partner for integrated optimisation systems and energy efficiency, Flexitricity – UK’s market leader for demand response, EESP (European Energy Solution Platform) – a service provider for energy market and customer service processes and Alpiq E-Mobility – the Swiss market leader for charging infrastructure solutions.

We set milestones. Together with our partners.

Our solutions manage millions of transmissions and hundreds of mathematical operations. Our global team received the Good Practice Award of the year 2017 from the Renewable Grid Initiative for our innovative approach. Our customers include the City of Zurich, DSM, Aluminium Rheinfelden, the SBB Swiss Federal Railways, Porsche, Netz Ober-Österreich, Vorarlberger Energienetze and Energiewerke Worms. Our partnerships enable us to offer a real added value. These partnerships focus on the fields of science and technology.

Science

We work together with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich within the framework of projects to optimise power plants and with the University of Sussex, we have an ongoing partnership for the field of pricing. Together with AED, Adaptricity and Landis+Gyr, we are researching the efficiency enhancement of decentralised electricity generation systems.

Technology

We develop software in collaboration with a leading IoT provider and have a partnership with has.to.be in the E-Mobility billing and access system Easy4u.

We are here for you.

Benefit from our energy know-how, digital expertise and extensive network. We are constantly working on developing new solutions to power the digital transformation across the energy industry and are open to preliminary studies and pilot projects. Contact us to learn more.
