The partnership will initially focus on establishing the foundational principles, data model and integration design of the ENOWA operating system.
NEOM’s energy, water and hydrogen subsidiary ENOWA partners with US-based AutoGrid to co-design its revolutionary digital energy platform.
A pioneer of AI-driven energy internet applications, AutoGrid enables energy providers to manage and optimise renewable and distributed energy resources, at-scale and in real-time, according to a statement from ENOWA.
The partnership will initially focus on establishing the foundational principles, data model and integration design of the ENOWA operating system; a series of use-case simulations will seek to extract capacity from distributed energy resources, thereby increasing the productivity and value of energy assets.
ENOWA to realise digital energy vision
“ENOWA is out to create a 100% renewable energy system, embedded within an AI-powered digital energy platform,” said Jens Madrian, executive director of Energy at ENOWA.
“As a global leader in the space, AutoGrid’s credentials are unmatched, and its team has precisely the experience and expertise to bring our ambitions to life,” he added.
