Management solutions for renewable energy systems: how operators are optimising the energy transition
Whether it’s funding for electric cars, charging points, fuel cells or subsidised loans for renewable energies: the energy transition is becoming a reality. Operators of renewable energy systems are responsible for the lion’s share of this development, because photovoltaic or wind power systems don’t come factory fitted with solutions for the smooth, plannable and secure feed-in of electricity into centrally organised grids.
Economic and regulatory criteria for critical infrastructure, i.e. in terms of revenue and operating safety, create requirements that are sometimes contradictory. However, there are specialised solutions for optimising the operation, monitoring and maintenance of renewable energy systems.
Even a superficial look at renewable energy sources reveals the challenge. Power generation depends on weather conditions: wind turbines stand still without wind – just as they do when there is too much wind. And without sunlight photovoltaic plants feed in little or no electricity.
Unfavourable initial situations make it necessary to manage renewable energy systems on a larger scale – otherwise their load and feed-in can’t be brought into a relationship where security of supply is achieved.
Unexpected breakdowns don’t make matters any easier – in addition they negatively affect the profitability model on which operators base their calculations. Such breakdowns include not only technical defects but also plant security and even cyber-crime. Controllable critical infrastructure systems also urgently need certifable security solutions.
With almost 30 years of experience in the field of innovative data communication, INSYS icom supports numerous operators of energy plants with its expertise and customised solutions “Made in Germany”. The industry-specific design of solution scenarios based on our own hardware and software, VPN security solutions – including for use in critical infrastructure environments – and the integration of an own or standardised monitoring, operating or management software create optimal all-in-one solutions for operators of renewable energy systems.
INSYS icom makes your renewable energy systems remotely maintainable with model security solutions, offers suitable routers for all application scenarios and enables the operation of individual or standardised software and control systems – on site or remotely.
A range of VPN options offer maximum security for critical infrastructures, ensuring that all necessary requirements are met effectively and reliably as part of your overall solution.
The implementation of a renewable energy data management solution is based on the following assumptions:
