Establishement of smart grid solutions AG:
Spin-off of the largest Smart Grid demonstration project in Switzerland
The project partners of GridBox, the largest smart grid demonstration project of Switzerland, have now established smart grid solutions AG. The company aims at the industrialization of an innovative grid management solution and its further development. Using the new platform smartbox, the pioneering GridBox technology as well as the acquired knowledge of the successful one-year-trial are being unified in one solution.
Thus, smart grid solutions AG offers the distribution grid operators an intelligent and scalable solution, which is able to manage current and future technical challenges. Anton Gunzinger, entrepreneur and member of the board of directors of smart grid solutions AG, explains the use of the real time management systems as follows: “Due to the increase of decentralized producers, battery storage solutions and E-mobility, grid operators will face new challenges, or are already facing them. The smartbox is a tool to master these tasks and does not only serve one single purpose, but as a platform it supports a variety of tasks, services and business models of the grid operators.”
The smartbox technology is the comprehensive platform for a modern distribution grid management. As a coordinated and spread solution it guarantees for a safe yet economic network operation. Thereby the smartbox covers a multitude of requirements. Applications like fault detection- and localization, extended network monitoring, support of the asset management, prosumer-applications as well as market functions, featuring real time characteristics are being unified on just one platform.
By applying this generic approach, smart grid solutions AG offers a flexible and scalable measuring-, communications-, and control platform, which allows for a rapid implementation of new business models and therefore already has the answers for tomorrow’s challenges.
