Azure ML Powers the Brain of the Modern Smart Grid

What could big data have to do with the reliable flow of electricity? As it turns out – a lot.
Electrical grids include power plants, transmission lines, and a network of substations that serve thousands of buildings and a lot of our public infrastructure. These are complex networks powered by data stored in building meters, customer information systems and in the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems used to manage the grid. Although there’s a lot of data available, pulling the right information is a challenge as there are many disparate systems and applications involved which do not talk to each other. Getting trustworthy insights on all of this data is therefore difficult.


District energy – the smart route to urban efficiency

As a leading player in district energy solutions, Danfoss presents know-how and future smart technologies at the Nordic Efficiency event in Paris. The solutions help increase energy efficiency in cities and the potential is huge.
Every day, more than half of the energy used for generating electricity vanishes into the air. This colossal energy waste has spurred the development of district heating and cooling systems that can utilize surplus energy to heat or cool people’s homes and to supply domestic hot water.
