A NETWORK THAT NETWORKS

The electricity network of the future must become smarter to enable it, for example, to predict when everyone wants to charge their cars and to find the best solutions on a cold night in January. With higher consumption, active customers and more weather-dependent production, the electricity network of the future must simply become much better at communicating, analysing and taking action than the networks we have today. This is becoming possible thanks to smart information technology. We get more information on how electricity is used and continuous updates on the supply produced by all power sources at a precise moment. And predictions on what the supply will be tomorrow. Monitoring of network stations, transformers and other components also makes it easier to predict load peaks, balance flows and carry out maintenance at the right time.
