Innovation Applied.

From utility to energy service provider

 
We support our customers in securing their market advantage with new business models by offering innovative, cloud-based technology and services to create, operate and visualize new digital energy services with added value, 

BN’s energy management systems are intelligent, open and scalable platforms with diverse applications and interfaces connected to market-leading manufacturers of meters, PV systems, batteries, charging stations or heat pumps and offer a real alternative to cost-intensive and rigid isolated solutions.

Scalable platform provides market advantage

Cloud-based technologies that enable the creation and marketing of new, value-added services are the future of the energy market. 
In the process each location is equipped with a gateway whose software performs decentralized functions and ensures data exchange with the cloud, processes the received data and creates a generic data archive. 
In addition, the integrated platform offers cloud services and applications for central tasks, as well as a variety of interfaces to backend systems, third-party clouds and individual front-end displays for different user groups. If you would like more information on energy management systems, you can download our white paper here.

Decisive advantages of the BN Energy Management Platform

  • Reduces integration risk as it is standardised, open, vendor-agnostic and maximally scalable
  • Ensures long-term investment protection through the large potential of different energy services on one platform (e.g. interconnection for self-consumption, smart e-car charging solutions, self-consumption optimization)
  • Connection options for different devices on site, such as PV inverters, batteries, charging boxes or charging stations, meters, heat pumps or boilers
  • Abstraction of data and creation of a future-proof data model that ensures the storage of real-time data in the cloud in full width and resolution 
  • High level of standardization and thus flexible setup of new applications based on the existing data model without having to resort to the interfaces of individual devices or tweak the data model. 
  • Provision of complete data for ex-post analyses
  • Integration of third-party systems, central, cross-system asset management and data storage in one platform
  • Continuous development of the platform in close cooperation with the user community 

Generally, broadband communication is required for the operation of energy management systems but remote buildings can also be connected via modems with 3G / 4G / 5G, PLC or radio.

Customized solutions and implementation

At BN, we support our clients in the conception, testing and introduction of company-specific energy applications on an individual basis depending on their requirements:

  • Intelligent charging solutions for electromobility and other Energy+ services such as tools for upselling and customer retention, self-consumption optimization for photovoltaic systems, energy communities and P2P electricity trading 
  • The interconnection for self-consumption management including meter management, asset management, meter reading, balancing and billing and visualisation
  • Multi-sector meter reading (gas, water, heat), billing and visualization and digital services 
  • Smart grid applications: Supervision and monitoring of grid level 7, software-based ripple control and decentralized grid control (self-healing), dynamic tariff system, incentivization of grid users, demand side management (making customer assets usable as grid resources).

In addition, we offer various services to help you support and operate your energy management platform. You can find more information about the available services here
Because of our understanding of the industry, our profound experience in digitalization and market liberalization in the ICT sector and as a long-standing provider of telecommunications solutions for wired and wireless access networks, we are proud to generate added value for our clients.
