Are business intelligence maturity models relevant for the energy sector?

Picture

Business intelligence (BI) maturity models are used to find out how far along a company is in terms of digitalisation and data use. In our blog post, we will explain how maturity models help with classification, whether the Interaction Room is an alternative way to apply them and, if it is, whether it can be used as a basis to successfully improve BI in the holistic consultancy process.

Fan heaters – is the amount of electricity they consume a risk?

Picture

The energy crisis has seen electric heaters and fan heaters become a much-discussed alternative to gas for quite a few months now – not to mention the criticism of them and concerns about a blackout. But how justified is this concern and what impact did the appliances have on our electricity grid when we moved into winter? We will answer these questions in our blog post.

Winter and renewable energies – is that a contradiction in terms?

Picture

The German energy transition is pursuing the goal that the share of electricity consumed from renewable energies should be at least 80 per cent by 2030. But can renewable energies also reliably generate electricity in the cold, dark depths of winter when outside is a never-ending barrage of rain, ice and snow? To what extent do these factors impact the power plants and what solutions are out there? In this blog post, we will take a look at the most important influences and impacts on renewable energies.

APV – the best of both worlds

Picture

The expansion of photovoltaic plants needs to be accelerated to make the energy transition a success. But with an increasing lack of suitable land, the question arises whether to use it for agriculture or to generate electricity. Agrophotovoltaics allows areas of land to be used for two purposes simultaneously: photovoltaic modules on stilts generate electricity and at the same time, the land beneath them can be used for agriculture. But how does it work and what are the advantages and disadvantages?

VideKIS: a year of research

Picture

Conventional power plants, such as nuclear or coal-fired power plants, still provide a large portion of the system services in the electricity grid these days, for example frequency maintenance. Our blog post about the VideKIS research project will reveal how these system services should also be provided using renewable energy sources in future.
