PRIME Alliance BPL Workshop – September 3 to 4, 2019
In Germany, the energy transition and the digitization of energy networks are progressing steadily to achieve the CO2 climate targets. On the one hand, energy production is becoming increasingly fragmented; on the other hand, energy networks for the integration of producers and consumers are becoming more complex. More buildings, plants, machines, and vehicles must be reliably supplied with electricity and gas. This can only succeed if producers and consumers work together intelligently in the data and energy networks. For this purpose, secure and sustainable communication solutions are needed, which are available directly at the energy-technical measuring points and the communication endpoints relevant for network management.
The Powerline technology has been successfully used worldwide for many years to connect more than 20 million measuring points and other network elements. Comparable with services in the public mobile networks, the performance of the Powerline technology has developed rapidly for our use cases in the last decades. The Powerline technology can meet the communication requirements in the smart grid and smart meter environment in a technically and economically sustainable way.
PRIME Alliance is currently working hard to continue developing the operating models and technical standards for Broadband Powerline. We want to share our experiences with you by presenting and discussing our current concepts, products, and operating models of the Broadband Powerline technology with you. Please click here to visit the programme for the Workshop on September 4th, preceded by an optional informal welcome dinner on September 3rd.
The workshop is free of charge to attend and the German utilities participating need not be PRIME Members. It is an open event for executives and specialists who deal with the communication networks in the energy supply on a technical level. Please kindly R.S.V.P. to the workshop, by filling out this registration form by August 26th.
