Developing Smart Grids

Sia Partners assists DSOs from the definition of their Smart Grid development strategy to the full implementation of innovative use cases in industrial business processes.
We intervene as operational support on projects as well as technical experts.


Developing Smart Grids for the benefit of all network users

Now more than ever, electricity networks are at the heart of energy issues. They are being digitized and transformed to meet new use cases and become more efficient.
In this context, the emergence of Smart Grid solutions should allow Distribution System Operators to guarantee and optimize the fulfillment of their core missions and to adapt in order to better meet the new expectations of network players.

Smart Grid solutions we helped our clients implement

The following are some examples of Smart Grid solutions for which we supported our clients throughout all phases of implementation.

Supporting the integration of renewable energy sources

This tool gathers and processes data from the network for the construction of renewable energy prospective scenarios. It helps to find the optimal positioning of solar panels without network reinforcements. Moreover, it computes the virtual capacities in order to create global scenarios of network planning.

Using Big Data and AI to predict incidents and improve the network

Thanks to sensors on the network and Big Data, this tool offers a better understanding of the state of the infrastructure and the presence of various vulnerabilities. This information can be used for maintenance purposes to avoid incidents due to abnormal stress on assets.
