Data-driven network management
Input and correlations relevant to theme
The addition of IT makes it possible to manage fluctuations in energy supply and demand and respond to evolving market relationships in a reliable, efficient and safe manner.
The use of IT makes it possible to manage fluctuations in energy supply and demand and respond to evolving market relationships in a reliable, efficient and safe manner. Smart networks and data technology help us to make targeted and effective investments in networks as well as to prevent outages and repair faults faster. Customers expect a network that enables them to feed in energy without any problem. They also expect us to make the network more reliable and transparent by means of innovative technology.
Our long-term objective
Alliander is working on an integrated IT architecture to be able to accommodate future processes and enable the energy transition. One of the objectives is to articulate a vision on our IT landscape. Liander’s activities plan includes digitalisation programmes.
Contribution from Alliander
We are working at various locations to make our energy networks smarter. These initiatives include the integration of smart technology into medium-voltage stations, the roll-out of a switching system for public lighting, the large-scale roll-out of smart meters and the implementation of ICT applications and sensors for managing the flexible flow of energy. Smart networks support a more efficient use of capacity and infrastructure, and are also more reliable. By expanding our smart energy networks, we are laying the groundwork for the digital services of the future.
