Plutinsus joins Big Data Alliance

The Big Data Alliance (BDA) has been emerging from the Horizon2020 MATRYCS project as a structured collaborative space with the aim to bring together policy makers, research institutions, private companies and industry associations in order to increase the use of data to solve building lifecycle management challenges.

Plutinsus is joining this important alliance to contribute innovative concepts and resources as we have been developing a software for the data-driven operation, maintenance and optimization of buildings and energy systems. The challenges to implement the decarbonization can only be solved by a concerted effort of the various stakeholders. We welcome the efforts of the BDA to facilitate and oversee the creation of challenge-driven partnerships and consortia, and the joint development of solutions.

“Electrojoule Heating System Manager powered by Plutinsus” awarded “SmartGridready” label

Electrojoule specializes in advanced diagnostic methods of heating and cooling systems in buildings in order to make the operation and maintenance of such systems more efficient, effective and climate friendly. Plutinsus has been developing the software for interactive infrastructure diagnostics that is powering Electrojoule’s Heating System Manager. As part of this collaboration, Plutinsus has completed the beta tests to fulfill the requirements for the “SmartGridready” label. Electrojoule and Plutinsus are among the first companies to receive the official confirmation of self-declaration for systems with the “SmartGridready” label.

The successful implementation of the energy transition requires Smart Grids. The association “SmartGridready” has been founded on 29th March 2019 and develops standards and a certification in order to support the connectivity of electrical devices with the distribution grid and energy resources.
This standardization helps to reduce the cost and effort to implement innovative solutions to control and monitor multi-vendor energy systems. Based on the work of SmartGridready, Plutinsus can enable novel business services such as Electrojoule’s heating system maintenance.
