US Ambassador to Poland visits the NES office in Gdansk, Poland to learn more about NES and how the NES System is being utilized in Poland to help create smart grids and cities.



Smart city needs smart grid

There are lots of energy grid solutions which have the label
“smart“, but are they all really “smart“ And what does
“smart enough“ mean? Find out in this whitepaper.



Making the smart grid intelligent: Using apps for power reliability

Experts from Swedish utility Vattenfall and global smart energy leaders Networked Energy Services (NES) and E-Smart Systems demonstrate how intelligent, local apps enable utilities to benefit from real-time, autonomous decision-making, where data can be shared across a variety of devices and platforms in a smart grid.

It is important to utilize open standards, which promote interoperability including interoperability with other meter manufacturers and other systems. This allows for flexibility, cost effectiveness, and future expandability in an effective manner. While Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP) supports true interoperability, this is not true for many protocols. So while complying to open standards is a basic condition, unfortunately, as many in the industry have learned, it is not sufficient to reach interoperability. Therefore I recommend that tenders should not mandate specific standards or specific technologies. This approach does not guarantee interoperability or a successful project. Instead, tenders should specify interoperability, functionality and performance. This will ensure success as well as encourage innovation in the marketplace. It is through innovation that vendors and providers will be able to create and offer utilities new applications and services that will support long term objectives, such as cost reductions, energy efficiency improvements and improved grid reliability.
