Intelligent energy networks are diminishing the borders between energy suppliers and energy consumers. They require innovative systems for collecting and processing consumption data. Smart metering creates a multi-functional bridge between the grid and the household using intelligent consumption meters for electricity, water and gas. As a result, energy producers and suppliers of electricity meters now face the challenges of an increasingly flexible electricity market. By analysing real-life case studies, the goals of the workshop aim to provide the participants with an introduction to state-of-the-art network management especially in smart metering, and encourage discussions on the approaches in establishing smart metering in their own business.
The challenge: Security which builds trust
Data security plays a decisive role in large-scale energy network to prohibit misuse and to optimally protect the privacy of all participants. As a competent partner, TÜV SÜD supports public utility companies to protect data transfer and data storage against unauthorised access and manipulation. TÜV SÜD tests the security of the data stream between energy providers and users with installed, intelligent meters - an important factor to establish long-term relationships with customers.
