The energy landscape is changing toward an increasingly distributed energy system

The agreement foresees the provision of a full digital service package for smart energy management, including data management for digital billing and operation and maintenance (O&M) solutions.

“There is significant potential in the distributed energy market, both in Brazil and globally. Today, industrial companies have new opportunities to take control of their energy costs, security of supply, and reduction of CO2 emissions with local energy solutions,” said John Kovach, global head of Distributed Energy Systems, Siemens Energy Management division.

“In addition, by utilising digital and customised services, we can help to leverage the full potential of these systems,” he noted.

The Siemens solutions have been developed in the smart grid environment. They use digitalisation to make local energy systems more efficient, reliable, and sustainable.

Brazil is now able to further advance in this area, preventing failures in the calculation of energy consumption and avoiding extra personnel costs by utilising remote predictive and preventive maintenance offerings.

As an example in this context, these solutions allow for a very accurate net metering process. According to recent Brazilian Electricity Regulation Agency regulations, excess electricity generated can be used as credit, which can then be used on subsequent energy bills.

Siemens supports customers across all businesses and industrial sectors in realising individual energy supply systems.

The services include design, installation, and operation of distributed energy systems based on renewable energy, as well as digital solutions and consulting for intelligent energy management.
