BEIJING, China – March 29, 2022 – Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) and Gridspertise announced a partnership to improve the resilience and quality of smart grids around the world. Gridspertise is a provider of advanced sustainable solutions for Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and is part of the Enel Group. The two parties will collaborate on the development of new hardware and software to support the self-healing and adaptive capacity of the distribution grid to address major changes in energy supply and demand around renewable energy.
Over the past fifteen years, ADI and the Enel Group have worked closely together for a long time to create smart metering and grid digitization solutions. Based on this, ADI’s partnership with Gridspertise will provide more accurate metering and monitoring by leveraging real-time data. This not only increases grid reliability (thanks to faster response times), improves grid resiliency, and improves customer service, it also increases utility operating efficiency, service flexibility, and accelerates the transition to clean energy. process. These technologies are suitable for improving legacy infrastructure in different regions and at different life stages without costly rebuilding efforts; in addition, they minimize the impact of assets on the environment, making digitization a key driver of greater sustainability in distribution grids .
Robert Denda, CEO of Gridspertise, pointed out: “Through an open innovation strategy, Gridspertise has established partnerships with key players in different industries to jointly promote the process of industrialization and provide advanced hardware and software solutions for the distribution network digitization market, supporting Global DSOs accelerate the energy transition. We are proud to follow Enel’s footsteps in a friendly partnership with ADI. We will continue to provide cutting-edge grid edge technologies to help operators better manage the overall demand for residential and commercial buildings and transform customers into future energy systems for productive consumers.”
Gridspertise’s groundbreaking solution, Quantum Edge® Equipment (QEd), is at the heart of the digitization of secondary substations, where ADI’s power and precision technologies provide enhanced analog-to-digital conversion, protection, precision measurement, metering and isolation. The Quantum Edge® device is an industry first to fully virtualize the physical components of a secondary substation, turning it into a customizable edge-side application, enabling new use cases and improving management of critical grid functions.
Patrick Morgan, vice president of the Automotive Electrification and Sustainable Energy Group at Analog Devices, said: “ADI technology spans the entire electrification ecosystem, from vehicles to energy storage to charging stations, and is increasingly important to the distribution grid. In the power grid, high-precision measurement and digitization are integral to increasing flexibility and resiliency. We are excited to extend our collaboration with Gridspertise to a new generation of advanced energy measurement, isolation, sensing and control solutions.”
