The energy networks in Switzerland are intelligent, secure and efficient
The energy networks (electricity, gas and heating) generate digital data and information and use these for data-intensive optimisation of network planning and operation. For example, the networks are developing new functionalities and form the intelligent link between energy production and energy consumption. Intelligent energy networks make it possible to cope efficiently with the increasing complexity of the decentralised, renewable energy production system. They support open energy markets as well as consumers by meeting the needs of digital business models in the market and transporting energy safely. Digitalisation enables close interaction among the networks, resulting in efficiency gains as well as cost savings.
