Our Energy Insights

Distributed Energy Resource Management Systems (DERMS) are becoming popular as the industry evolves from aging central plants to decentralized energy resources.

While some industries have been quick to adopt blockchain technology, the energy generation sector has been relatively slow to embrace the opportunity.

As the EU sets the pace in the global race against climate change here is a forecast about the key trends for energy in 2019…

Jürgen Resch, our Industry Manager for Energy and Infrastructure, explains that energy storage isn’t just for those rechargeable household AA batteries.

24 per cent of the world’s total energy comes from hydro-electric power. But how to handle the advantages of hydro-electric power over other renewable sources?

Give static geoinformation a new breath of life. The combination of GIS and SCADA controls rooms of transmission and distribution networks, of municipal services, and of industrial facilities.

What does zenon have to do with distribution networks and what is a DMS? Here you can find the answers.

zenon features, such as substitution or data types, ensure efficient engineering, especially with very large projects in energy automation.

Wizards for faster and easier creation of IEC 61850-based energy automation projects.

Ethernet networks for critical high-speed applications in substations. PRP and HSR redundancy protocols in IEC 61850-based systems.

Automate recurring switching actions with the Command Sequencer. Configure, test and execute them in the graphics editor directly.

COPA-DATA is certified to SIL 2 in accordance with the requirements of the IEC 61508 standard.

The process control system, zenon, enables the combination of different standards – for example, DNP3 and IEC 61850 - and guarantees high performance.

SNMP ensures that you have an overview and control of a network. zenon features its own SNMP driver and can be both an agent and a manager.

zenon is supporting the standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) IEC 60870, IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25.

Whether it is IEC 61850 or IEC 60870 standard, DNP3 or a special driver: zenon is applicable for the control of energy, water, traffic and telecommunications.
