Electris is an electricity provider that supplies electricity to over 5,000 customers in Luxembourg. As a forerunner in the industry, they wanted to tap into new market potential by addressing customers' changing needs and offering them innovative digital energy services. This would allow both Electris and end users to benefit from lower costs and more holistic, integrated and sustainable energy systems.
Electris opted for gridX's XENON platform as the technical enabler for all future solutions along the entire energy value chain. As a manufacturer-independent communication gateway, the gridBox forms the basis for the integration of all distributed energy resources, enabling open yet secure interoperability between energy devices. Our XENON platform facilitates the rapid development and use of big data in the field of energy.
XENON is also being leveraged in the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology's (LIST) Combi-Cast project, in which Electris is involved. Our platform will be used to improve and further develop forecasting models for the prediction of short-term photovoltaic output. To achieve this, gridBoxes are installed directly in customers' homes to enable smart household energy flows.
The project applies gridX technology to a completely new use case and highlights the flexibility of our technology stack. It also shows how XENON enables companies to realize ambitious digital projects. Eventually, Combi-Cast will provide the groundwork for an intelligent energy management system that enables future-oriented smart business models in energy.
gridX's manufacturer-independent platform allowed E.ON to develop a dynamic load management solution to optimize energy by taking the real-time load into account and prioritize charging without manual input.
Upon electrifying its fleet, Bielefeld-based construction company, Goldbeck, realized the EV charging stations would exceed their grid capacity. XENON overcame this issue with an energy management system that enables smart charging.
