Smart tasks with #PIONIERGEIST

Three terms that go hand in hand: #PIONIERGEIST, research and technology. This requires passion. innogy developers are "pioneers by nature". We are intensely working on the energy supply of tomorrow – and we are developing new technologies in the process. We set up exciting projects to prove these technologies: with Smart Operator, for example, we test distributed grid control. Or we use our newly developed wind measuring buoys to determine the best conditions for building new wind farms.

This is exactly your field. Future technology driven by your #PIONIERGEIST. When will we meet?

Smart Operator – control centre for flexible distribution grids

An innogy employee holds up a box-shaped smart operator. In the background: a distribution transformer.

Focus smart grids: we develop new concepts and technologies for flexible and high-performance distribution grids. One example is the Smart Operator. Approximately the size of a paperback book, it acts as the switching point between households and the local distribution grid. It continuously monitors electricity supply and demand, balances the two and maintains voltage quality. #PIONIERGEIST for intelligent distribution grids!

Innovative wind measuring buoys for more efficient wind parks

 #PIONIERGEIST is building the new technology to make wind more predictable. That's the motto for the buoys of the Offshore Wind Accelerator initiative. Our Offshore Wind division has a stake in this project. The smart measuring buoys are located off the Welsh coast in the Gwynt y Môr wind farm and other sites. The buoys, equipped with cutting-edge technology, accurately capture local wind conditions. Better measuring instruments, better yields, more green electricity.
