Energy management in a small network is still easy to oversee, but with each asset you add, the complexity also increases exponentially. You get buried in Excel sheets and the if/then rules keep you from sleeping at night. But what if we tell them it can be easy, too? Our Energy Management System (EMS) translates complex data into clear strategies that transform your energy infrastructure. You can read how that process works in this article.

Navigating the world of energy management can be overwhelming, especially when faced with complex networks and a multitude of data. That’s why Tibo Energy has developed a simple, step-by-step system to guide you through every aspect of energy management: from data collection to simulation, control and monitoring. In this article, we take you through the steps from simulation to control and tell you what sets our EMS apart today.

Step 1: Importing data

Energy management is all about data. Importing your data is an important first step our EMS to function effectively. You start by loading your energy consumption data into the system. This allows the software to get a detailed overview of your energy use and production.

Loading this data into the Tibo EMS makes it possible to identify and analyze patterns in energy consumption. This information is essential for building an accurate Digital Twin of your energy infrastructure. By understanding how energy is consumed and generated, you can develop more effective energy management strategies specific to your needs.

This first step of data collection is fundamental because it lays the foundation for all subsequent analyses and simulations. This data allows us to make accurate predictions and more intelligent decisions that help optimize energy flows and reduce energy costs, while supporting your sustainability goals.

Step 2: Simulate

At Tibo Energy, simulation is all about creating an accurate representation of an energy infrastructure using a Digital Twin. This digital copy mimics the actual energy assets and their interactions within the network. This allows you to test scenarios and predict how different setup changes – such as adding new assets or changing energy consumption patterns – will impact energy efficiency and capacity utilization.

These simulations are driven by a sophisticated algorithm that takes into account variables such as energy consumption, energy generation, storage capacities and dynamic energy prices. This helps companies make strategic decisions about their energy management, with the goal of optimizing energy efficiency, minimizing costs and contributing to sustainability goals.

What makes Tibo EMS unique is that what is simulated can actually be controlled. The system makes real-time adjustments based on the collected and analyzed data to continuously optimize energy efficiency. This makes Tibo EMS particularly effective in complex energy networks where rapid response to changing conditions is crucial.

Step 3: control & management

The third step in the process is to drive and manage your energy assets. After conducting a thorough simulation and understanding the optimal energy management strategies, the next step is to implement these strategies in practice.

The Tibo EMS uses real-time data to actively manage energy flows within the user’s infrastructure. This means that the system can continuously make adjustments based on current conditions, such as changes in energy consumption, fluctuations in energy prices or changes in weather that can affect the production of renewable energy sources. And that’s really by the millisecond.

The management function of the EMS ensures that all energy assets, such as solar panels, battery storage systems and any other connected equipment, are used optimally. For example, the system can automatically decide to store energy in batteries during periods of low energy prices and release it during peak hours when prices are higher.

This dynamic management not only helps optimize energy costs and improve energy use efficiency, but also contributes to grid stability and supports the broader goals of sustainability and carbon reduction. Tibo EMS makes all this possible with a system that is both powerful and flexible, ensuring adaptability to different scenarios and customer-specific needs.

Step 4: monitor

Monitoring is crucial for both managing and optimizing your energy infrastructure. It allows you to continuously oversee the performance of all connected energy assets. With Tibo EMS, you gain access to advanced monitoring tools that provide real-time insight into energy production, consumption and overall system efficiency.

Our tools provide detailed visualizations and reports that clearly explain how energy is flowing through your facility, where potential losses are occurring and where optimizations are feasible. These insights are crucial for making informed decisions that improve your energy management both reactively and proactively, with a focus on future-proofing and lowering your carbon footprint.

In conclusion

Tibo EMS is transforming the way companies approach energy management. With a clear, step-by-step approach, we make it possible to manage complex energy networks efficiently and effectively. From collecting critical data to dynamically controlling assets and real-time monitoring, our system provides the tools you need to minimize your energy costs, support your sustainability goals and increase the reliability of your energy supply. With Tibo EMS by your side, advanced energy management is not only possible, but accessible, so you are ready for the energy challenges of today and tomorrow.

  • Wat is capaciteitsdeling en waarom is het belangrijk?
Capaciteitsdeling binnen energyhubs betekent dat bedrijven hun energieverbruik nauwkeurig laten monitoren en analyseren. Een slim energiemanagementsysteem balanceert vervolgens de vraag en het aanbod, waardoor alle deelnemers gezamenlijk gebruikmaken van de totaal beschikbare netcapaciteit. Dit optimaliseert de benutting van aansluitvermogens en stabiliseert de druk op het elektriciteitsnet.
De voordelen van netcapaciteit delen
Netcapaciteit delen heeft heel wat voordelen. Naast de efficiëntere inzet van de netcapaciteit en het verminderen van de noodzaak voor energietransport via het centrale net, biedt het ook financiële prikkels voor het gebruik van lokale, duurzame energie. Bedrijven die meer energie opwekken dan nodig, kunnen hun overschot delen met lokale gebruikers of verkopen aan traders.
Daarnaast maakt capaciteitsdeling het mogelijk voor bedrijven met een grotere netaansluiting dan nodig, om hun capaciteit tegen een vergoeding beschikbaar te stellen aan anderen binnen de hub.
