Data-driven network management
Input and correlations relevant to issue
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. We are making medium-voltage stations more intelligent, rolling out a switching system for public lighting, offering smart meters and implementing IT applications and sensors to flexibly manage the flow of energy. Smart networks support the efficient use of capacity and infrastructure, and are also more reliable. Expanding our smart energy networks lays the groundwork for the digital services of the future.
