“We needed an innovative approach to develop a future-proof next-generation grid management solution in Norway. Working with Siemens, we deployed an advanced and future-proof product within weeks that will help us to accelerate and handle the energy transition. With increased flexibility and oversight over our grid, we can now manage our low-voltage system in a much more efficient manner – from planning to operations and maintenance,” said Erik Jansen, Head of Grid Operations of Elvia.
Co-innovation was crucial to the rollout of both products at Elvia. During the process, Elvia alongside additional European DSOs, tested prototypes of the software to develop user-centric solutions that are easy and intuitive to use. This agile approach led to the development of a product that supports modern and robust grid control architecture.
The new SaaS product, LV Insights® X, is part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio – an open digital business platform that enables customers to accelerate their digital transformation easier, faster, and at scale. It provides the foundations for flexible, adaptable, and scalable low-voltage grid management and helps reduce outage times by up to 30 percent. Elvia is able to leverage the full benefits of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio using LV insights® X as it seamlessly integrates into its existing system landscape, including Spectrum PowerTM 7 ADMS.
