E.On adopts Ventyx smart grid for control center in Sweden

Ventyx, an ABB company, will provide smart grid technology for Germany-based energy services provider E.On.

The energy company, which serves more than 26 million customers in 30 countries, will use Ventyx software solutions in a new smart grid control center in Sweden.

Building upon its existing deployment of Ventyx’s SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system, the following IT solutions from the Ventyx portfolio will be implemented, developed and tested: business analytics, network optimization, load forecasting, demand response and distributed resource management.

Combining information (IT) and operational technologies (OT) in E.On’s smart grid control center will deliver a higher degree of grid automation, sensing and visibility; achieve greater control of distributed generation; and further support regulatory compliance.

The new smart grid control center will be installed in Malmo, Sweden, and is anticipated to be operational in early 2014 for test and development purposes.
