As connectivity and energy are the core functionalities of smart grids, those are the latest trends in this market:


Smart grid communication

Ensures flexible grids bringing communications into and from the household

An intelligent network, the Smart Grid, allows the flexible regulation of energy flow. In this instance, the integration of energy users plays an essential role for in the future.

Metering and smart metering

Energy consumption measurement refering to electrcity, gas, heat and water

Meter upgrade to a smart meter adds the process where reading of the meter is carried out automatically and continuously. This is not only rational but also allows the continuous gathering of usage data in very short intervals of time.

Solar energy

Solar PV systems work best in energy-efficient homes and buildings

Solar panels convert solar energy into direct current (DC), then an inverter then converts it into the appropriate sinusoidal alternating voltage or alternating current (AC) used in the connected electric grid.

Wind energy

Wind energy conversion into electrical power

The generation of wind-produced electrical power begins when the force of the wind pushes against the turbines’ blades, causing them to rotate and thereby creating mechanical energy. Gearbox in turn connects via high-speed shaft and to an electrical generator.

Energy storage

Electricity storage is the holy grail of the electricity generation and delivery industry

If electric cars would be on larger scale production for sure the price of batteries would accelerate further applicational segments. Battery Management System (BMS) solutions are designed to monitor, balance and protect large scale battery stacks in many applications.

E-vehicle charging infrastructure

An intelligent charging infrastructure is the prerequisite for the broad adoption of EVs

The success of EVs will strongly depend on a sophisticated charging infrastructure that supports mobility which can compete with that of conventional combustion engine driven cars. This will require an extended availability of “normal” charging stations at work, shopping, dining and residential areas as well as innovative fast charging stations along highways and in remote locations. In addition charging needs to be user friendly, safe, cost efficient and standardised.
