Tomorrow's technology, today.

Enabling the energy transition with connectivity

Heat pump, photovoltaic system, electricity storage, charging infrastructure for electric vehicles ... Only when you optimize energy flows across sectors do the individual energy management systems deliver real added value - both for end-customers and for your network.  

You know as well as we do that more and more houses and settlements are equipped with renewable energy systems. So far, so good. The much more recent development is the shift from the increasing number of individual devices to the combination of two and more systems - connectivity. This can be, for example, the coupling of a photovoltaic system and a charging station for eVehicles, or the combination with a heat pump. 

«Connectivity is not a luxury. It is a fundamental requirement for the successful energy transition!»
— Kiwigrid

So it's all about connecting the multitude of devices and intelligently controlling coupled systems. Always with the aim of making the most effective use of the available energy - and saving thousands of kilograms of CO2. 

Getting the end customers behind the wheel 

The more complex the decentralized energy world becomes, the more crucial it is to control it intelligently. What is supposed to be smart in concept must feel all the simpler in the everyday lives of customers: The keyword here is customer centricity. Only if the energy systems can be controlled with ease will the optimization possibilities be exploited, additional systems implemented and end customers happy. 

Of course, despite all customer centricity, additional requirements that affect the entire energy system across all sectors (electricity, gas, heat) must not be neglected, but must be included in the optimization. In general, the initial expenses for the digitization and connectivity of decentralized energy systems are still very high today, since there are only corresponding standards for small subsectors (e.g. SunSpec protocol for inverters) and these are not yet compatible with each other. For example, inverters speak a different language than charging stations and use different communication media. We offer a solution for that

The whitelabel solution Energy Manager VoyagerX 

The lynchpin for smart sector coupling is the whitelabel solution Energy Manager VoyagerX. The VoyagerX collects the device data, which is processed in the associated cloud-based platform for monitoring, analysis, or remote maintenance purposes. In turn, the VoyagerX accepts commands and schedules to control energy devices according to various optimization goals. Furthermore, in addition to connectivity at the device level, this platform-based system also allows third-party solutions to be integrated via the respective backend. 

According to the plug-and-play principle, the coupling is completed in just a few minutes for both end customers and installers.  

The contemporary end customer portal involves 

The high-performance Kiwigrid end customer portal is equipped with numerous features. Users can see their energy flow in an individual diagram at a glance. They always know exactly how much electricity they are currently generating and where the self-produced energy is going. The degree of self-sufficiency calculated from this, and the proportion of self-consumption are particularly popular metrics. 

One level down, Kiwigrid provides further data on the individual sectors and devices. From this, concrete optimizations such as the switching of smart plugs can be derived. 

Our partner Kiwigrid

For optimized energy management in single and multi-family homes, we work with our German partners from Kiwigrid. They have been working for the energy transition for more than 10 years and have nothing less in mind than "delivering the platform so you can change the world". We are happy to support you in this endeavor.
