Intelligent energy distribution.

What is Smart Energy? It is a type of energy management that uses modern wireless connectivity, telemetry and data science to deliver cost-effective, efficient and data-driven energy distribution. It combines sustainable, renewable energy sources and industrial IoT energy management solutions and devices.

Innovative energy ecosystems must extend beyond intelligent electrical grids and metering to achieve:

  • Reducing peaks in power load
  • Sharing of energy which is not currently needed
  • Accessing a dynamic energy market with daily price updates
  • Trading energy - purchasing when it's cheap and selling when the price is higher

The World is POWER hungry.

Just one example is a recent massive EV deployment - a process that puts enormous pressure on electrical grids worldwide. How to manage infrastructure to serve all those new electric cars? As the planet's energy needs increase, more and more problems are materialising:

  • The exponential growth of consumption
  • Ageing infrastructure
  • The rising cost of outages
  • Rising of consumer expectations around energy availability

Smart Meter Technology.

Smart meters provide real-time energy availability and consumption data. This data helps utility providers distribute energy to maximise benefits and reduce outages. Improved accounting and billing transparency let customers modify energy usage to save money and be more environmentally conscientious.

Since smart meters are always wirelessly connected, the need for manual reading of energy consumption is gone.

Case Study: Smart Battery. Payback time.

WolkAbout is helping a prominent dutch startup Friday Energy to revolutionise energy distribution. At the first look, the idea is simple: collecting solar power and storing it in a battery when the energy obtained from the grid is cheaper. The stored energy is sold later for a higher price. The complete process is fully automated as the digital ecosystem connects to a national energy market. After some time, the system is aware of the consumption practices and can predict higher energy prices. In most cases, the Friday Battery ecosystem pays for itself in around five years. Also, the payback time of the connected solar panel system is significantly improved.
