24th Nov 2022:
Today, ABB, E-REDES, Kalkitech and VMware are joining the Edge for Smart Secondary Substations (E4S) Alliance, created to develop a standard, flexible, manageable and interoperable platform for next-generation Smart Grids. Having some of the largest distribution system operators in the world partnering with technology providers to co-develop an entirely new solution will revolutionize the energy transition and help achieve a climate-neutral economy. The E4S Alliance is helping digitize the grid and make it data driven in order to meet carbon neutrality.
Utilities will benefit from an open standard based secure and highly scalable platform to monitor and control the electrical grid, especially in low voltage. Virtualization of applications, in combination with edge computing leads to lower total cost of ownership (TCO), faster time to market for new applications and more efficient management and delivery of electricity.
