Schneider Electric announced a technology advancement that extends digital twins from the design and engineering stage into the operations and maintenance stage of renewable energy installations.
EcoStruxure for Renewables – announced at the Innovation Summit World Tour, Schneider Electric’s annual customer and partner event — is designed for companies developing renewables projects — including hybrid projects that mix solar, wind, and storage. It is also ideal for industrial businesses that are seeking to decarbonize their operations by integrating hybrid power sources such as on-site solar plus traditional gensets.
“Our latest digital twin technology in EcoStruxure for Renewables gives companies the digital continuity to make it work,” said Frederic Godemel, Executive Vice President of Power Systems and Services at Schneider Electric.
EcoStruxure for Renewables now enable renewable energy asset managers leverage the same data and digital twins to operate their renewable installations. It facilitates everything from the supervision of a single renewable farm hyper vision decreasing (MTTR) and increasing mean time between failure (MTBF).
The digital twins of EcoStruxure for Renewables can further feed actionable, real-time data to AVEVA Unified Operations Center for Renewables. This approach enables agile and responsive management of wind and solar operations by making the complete enterprise visible.
