Rejlers to present digital twin for the electricity grid on Energy Market Day

Digital energy solutions are an area where Rejlers’ energy experts are at the cutting edge of developments. On Tuesday 22 May, experts Claes Böös and Jonas Lundgren will explain how Rejlers is using digital twins* to develop the country’s electricity grid and systems. Electric Market Day is being organised by Dagens industri with the themes of digitalisation, business models and customer benefits. Head of the Energy Division, Jenny Edfast will also attend and take part in a panel discussion with the theme “The electricity market hub of the future - consequences and opportunities for energy companies”. 

During Energy Market Day, leading industry players and innovators will assemble to discuss and share their knowledge and insight into what the energy business of the future will look like. Marc Hoffman, CEO at E.ON, and Ulla Sandborgh, Director-General at Svenska Kraftnät, are just two of the other speakers who will take part during the day. Rejlers will present its work relating to digital twins.

“Everything is now in place to assess the benefits that digital twins can offer in the energy system together with forward-looking installation owners. We are ready to go live,” says Claes Böös, energy expert and group manager at Rejlers.

With a digital twin for switchgear or grid in place, it will be possible to extract information from the system, which would otherwise require travel or safety measures. Claes Böös sees major benefits as regards both finance and the environment. Obviously it is possible to obtain information such as work orders or data for use in decision-making without interrupting electricity supplies.

“We are only at the beginning of this development and it is particularly exciting, as the entire electricity market is facing major changes,” says Jenny Edfast, Head of the Energy Division at Rejlers Sweden.

Facts: The panel which will discuss the topic “The electricity market hub of the future” will include, in addition to Jenny Edfast, Ulla Sandborgh, Director-General of Svenska Kraftnät, Alf Engqvist, CEO of Göteborgs Energi and Hando Sutter, CEO of Eesti Energia/Enefit. They will be on the stage at Grand Hotel from 10.20am to 10.40am. Claes Böös and Jonas Lundgren will be on stage discussing “Digital models for the electricity grid” during the session from 1.30pm to 2pm.

*A digital twin is an exact replica of a particular machine/plant in the form of software. The physical machine supplies its digital twin with information concerning its status. Inspections and troubleshooting can then be carried out on the digital twin in many cases. This way, the physical machine does not have to be stopped except when absolutely necessary.
