“Grid Awareness – applied from Copper to Cloud

Electrical Utilities are facing the challenges of integrating an increasing number of renewable energies. At the same time the rise in the electrification of heat and transportation is changing people´s consumption habits, which puts a growing risk on network stability.

Addressing these challenges, E.ON :agile accelerator and Gridhound invite you to learn about grid awareness and to discuss solutions that enable Distribution System Operators to proactively avoid problems and optimize grid operation.
