Italian smart grid specialist Gridspertise has teamed up with Analog Devices on the development of new hardware and software self-healing, adaptive electricity grids.

Gridspertise is a subsidiary of the Enel Group in Italy and has already announced a deal with Qualcomm for smart grid technology for distribution system operators (DSOs). This QEd Quantum Edge device for secondary substations, developed with Qualcomm, also uses ADI’s analogue-to-digital conversion, protection, precise measurement, metrology, and isolation devices.

“ADI technologies span across the electrification ecosystem, from vehicles to energy storage to charging stations, and today they are becoming even more important for the electric power distribution grids, where precision measurement and digitalisation is essential to ensure greater flexibility and resilience,” said Patrick Morgan, Corporate Vice President of Automotive Electrification and Sustainable Energy at Analog Devices. “We are pleased to expand our collaboration with Gridspertise into our next generation of advanced energy measurement, isolation, sensing, and control solutions.”

The deal with ADI is built on a smart meters and grid digitalisation collaboration over the last fifteen years with Enel, where ADI has been enabling more precise and accurate measurement and monitoring capabilities through real-time data. The faster response times result in enhanced grid reliability, improved resiliency, and higher quality of service to customers, while allowing utilities to improve their operational efficiency and a rapid transition to clean energy.

A key factor is that the technologies being developed are suitable for the enhancement of legacy infrastructures of different geographies and life stage, and do not require costly rebuilds; also, they minimise the environmental impact of the assets, making digitalisation a key driver for more sustainable power distribution grids.

“Leveraging an open innovation approach, Gridspertise collaborates with key players from different sectors to industrialise and deliver the most advanced hardware and software solutions in the market for the digitalisation of power distribution grids, supporting DSOs around the world to accelerate the energy transition,” said Robert Denda, CEO of Gridspertise. “We look forward to continuing offering the most up to date grid edge technologies that enable operators to better manage aggregated demand from residential and commercial buildings and support the future of the energy system in which our customers become prosumers.”
