For a typical medium-sized European DSO with.
- Turnover of €1B and operational Profits of 30%.
- RES increasing to 40%,
Network issues and outages have the potential to reduce this profit by 25%, i.e. at least €70m of operational profits lost every year.
An Active Distribution Management System enables a distribution Smart Grid that can cut those losses by 20%, i.e. save €14m/year. Potential profit impact of the Active Distribution System Management system on a DSO could be about €70m over 5 years.
To restore that €70M profitability, the DSO would need to monitor at least half of its ground based MV/LV substations (say 20,000). Over 5 years, at an average cost of €1,500 to equip each substation, the Active Distribution Management System installations would cost about €15M.
An amazing ROI > 450% for the DSO ! – if the cost target per substation can be achieved !
The ADMS Active Distribution Management System achieves those cost targets and allows a DSO to increase its Smart Grid Capacity.
