Challenges

When machines talk to each other

The increasing decentralization of the electricity industry leads to major challenges in the control, communication and maintenance of various microgrid components. These are the biggest hurdles.

Black boxes

How your hardware and software works and what it does exactly remains hidden. This lack of transparency leaves little or no scope for adjustments and improvements and leads to a high risk of stranded assets.

Limited computing power

In general, edge gateways are not designed to perform complex real-time calculations. However, these are indispensable for many applications.

Incompatibility

Hardware and software are often incompatible. Very limited alternatives or expensive bad investments are the result.

Security risks

Security against attacks and data confidentiality: The digital security aspects when operating a microgrid are diverse, complex and difficult to handle.

Data transfers

Many providers, many LTE gateways. The contract and data transfer costs skyrocket. Security suffers, too.

Resilience

Lack of redundancy: If one component fails, this has implications for the entire system. Frequent failures and a lack of technical reliability threaten operational safety and profitability.
