Energy 4.0 - Unimagined flexibility through optimal processes!

audako digitizes your generation, distribution or consumption process with its IoT technology for the energy industry.

Energy transition or digitized energy?

The German federal government passed the Act on the Digitization of the Energy Transition (GDEW) a few years ago as part of the energy transition and laid the foundation for digitization of the energy sector. There is increasing talk of "virtual power plants" in connection with the Energy 4.0 debate. In our view, it is not enough to achieve the energy transition quickly and efficiently by expanding renewable energies alone. We therefore welcome the Act on the Digitization of the Energy Transition (GDEW), because digitization is the only driving force for a successful energy transition. The potential it offers is huge for the energy industry. The path to the digital enterprise can bring flexible new business models or further innovations to the market.

Whether energy generation by conventional or renewable energy sources, energy distribution via energy networks or energy consumption - we cover the entire industry along the value chain with our audako solution portfolio. Regardless of the energy source (gas, coal, district heating, oil, etc.), audako can be used. Monitoring, control and supervision can be applied to any energy medium with our software. Do you already have a digitization strategy or do you know what you want to digitize? Get the market leadership or strengthen your position with our Energy 4.0 strategy.

audako IoT Platform and Energy 4.0

With audako, you can connect any number of decentralized generation or consumption plants, machines or the supply network via a central digital control system and monitor them. With automated optimization, you can evaluate acquired data volumes associated with the digitization of measurement systems on plants or machines. You can use your data (smart data) more efficiently than before, for example, to optimize energy consumption or identify customer needs. Data evaluation and use is becoming increasingly cost-effective thanks to our IoT technology through network communication. audako offers you countless opportunities to optimize processes and consumption through the use of IoT monitoring systems, which can have a positive impact on operating costs.

This is what audako can do for the energy sector:

Energy Efficiency

The potential lies in the analysis of energy data, which is carried out by recording the actual state of individual measuring devices and sensors followed by a comparison of a target state. The comparative values form the basis for the creation and visualization of measures to improve the energetic and often also the process engineering plant and process status.

Determine key figures of your plants Key Performance Indicators (KPI)

audako automatically calculates the required KPIs of your power plant or your plants. KPIs are key figures used, for example, to determine the availability or efficiency of plants so that measures can be taken to improve them. KPIs help you measure and optimize process decisions that are critical to success. Real-time online monitoring gives you access to customizable key performance indicators such as availability, performance and quality degradation, and bottlenecks.

Predictive Maintenance

audako creates forecasts about plant conditions based on learned empirical values in "Condition Monitoring". audako detects faults, anomalies, critical events and their causes at an early stage and provides reliable forecasts about the remaining useful life of plants. Based on these forecasts, you can plan needs-oriented maintenance and servicing actions in advance.

Monitor and control data   IoT Monitoring

audako collects data e.g. in a power grid about peak loads, voltage fluctuations, capacities and outages in real time. Our IoT technology enables the collection of a huge amount of data (Big Data), which is presented in an analysed and simplified way on the visually high-quality dashboard as intelligent data (Smart Data). Utilities can adjust and optimize response and processing times accordingly.

Control with IoT remote control technology

The audako Edge Gateway for your plants, machines and processes gives you flexibility in data acquisition. The benefit results from being able to react quickly and in a coordinated manner to the statuses and measured values of your plant. By bundling the functions of a telecontrol system and using audako Edge Gateways, a cost-effective data transport is achieved that offers you a wide range of possible applications. The compact solution is suitable for centralized and decentralized use in critical infrastructure areas due to its reliable and secure communication. The remote access solution is easy to implement, user-friendly and offers a high security standard.

audako Smart Metering

Our smart metering solution consists of audako Egde gateways and the IoT platform. The gateway reads the data from the smart meters and sends it encrypted via 5G or other IP-based ways to the IoT platform. The audako Egde Gateway takes into account privacy and data security compliance. You can use audako to make energy consumption transparent and optimize your energy management with the help of consumption data. audako can perform accrual of electricity quantities forwarded to third parties previously identified as third parties in the company, in the sense of the third-party accrual of the EEG. You have an energy monitoring system with numerous application possibilities.

Define individual alerting steps

With the audako IoT platform, you get an integrated alerting and notification tool that responds to your needs. audako sends notifications taking into account the available personnel according to the work plan, responsibilities and the alarm escalation rules. Critical events such as system alarms and alarm cascades are sent to on-call services thanks to intelligent alerting with notification profiles. These applications can be managed via management tools and set according to user needs. audako provides support for maintenance workloads with individual settings and assistance. audako works efficiently with different user roles, which are assigned different rights, duties and views depending on their responsibilities.
