Company also announced new digital integration opportunities with Bazefield and sponsorship of the first ever hackathon at WindEurope
Smart energy management firm Envision Energy has formed a strategic technology alliance to advance research in renewable energy forecasting.
The multi-year partnership, reportedly the first of its kind, will see Envision collaborate with the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), the Met Office (the UK’s national weather service), and Aarhus University (BTECH CET) on new methods, models and technologies.
Envision also announced at WindEurope, the annual meeting of the European wind energy industry, new platform integrations between EnOS and energy software company Bazefield.
Acquired by Envision last year, Bazefield customers will now have access to Envision’s Ensight, with further integration of Enlight, Envision Apollo performance analytics, and the Bazefield capabilities on the EnOS platform in the future.
Cloud-based EnOS is a smart, scalable and open energy Internet of Things (IoT) platform which helps manage over 100GW of energy assets globally. Through real-time computing, machine learning and big data analytics, the platform provides digital solutions to monitor and control how, where and when energy is produced, transmitted, stored and consumed.
At the meeting, Envision partnered with WindEurope and InnoEnergy to co-host WindEurope’s first-ever hackathon, Hack the Wind, with Envision’s EnOS platform.
The aim of the hackathon was to help shape the future of the wind energy industry by facilitating the development of innovative new algorithms and applications, with wind farm data provided by Envision, EDP Renewable and InnoEnergy.
Envision mentors were on hand to support teams in their quest for a €20,000 prize.
Envision Energy claims to have more than 100GW of connected energy assets to its energy IoT platform and is among the 10 largest turbine companies in the world with more than 12GW of smart wind turbines in operation.
Based in Shanghai, the company has regional offices across Asia, Europe, North and South America and has established global R&D and engineering centres in Denmark, Germany and the US.
