“The aim of the partnership is to accelerate the creation of a platform that facilitates the digitalisation of the grid and enables adaptive control of the smart grid”
TECNALIA promotes the smart transformation of electrical substations together with the E4S Alliance
TECNALIA has joined the Edge for Smart Secondary Substations (E4S) alliance, a collaboration that promotes a secure and scalable architecture based on open, interoperable and secure standards to monitor and control the electrical grid. The aim of this alliance is to accelerate the creation of a platform that facilitates grid digitisation and enables adaptive control of the smart grid, enabling operators to manage energy demand and improve reliability in all areas. Virtualisation of applications helps to reduce marketing time and facilitates the creation of new applications, as well as more efficient electricity management and supply.
