GPM Horizon has been designed to enable future-proof fleet management by bringing digitalisation technologies and integrated renewables systems together in one platform, key drivers for advancing the global energy transition.
Global energy forecasters, including the International Energy Agency, foresee a rapid growth in renewable sources. In its 2018 Energy Transition Outlook DNV GL forecasts that by 2050, well over 80 percent of electricity will be generated by renewable sources with wind and solar PV each contributing over one third to the mix. Well over 40 percent of primary demand will be met by renewable sources by 2040 according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). This will in turn stimulate a rise in demand for combined storage plus renewables platforms, meaning that the integration of renewable energy systems via the use of digital technologies will be key in order to realise the full potential of clean energy in the years to come. GPM Horizon has been designed to capitalise on this trend by delivering a 360-degree integration of systems and technologies.
The Artificial Intelligence and machine learning applications of GPM Horizon enable users to transform their data into actionable insights. The platform gives asset operators a comprehensive control room experience for their renewable assets with key information delivered through dashboards tailored to the needs of each user type. In addition, advanced alarms ensure no exceptional events are missed.
“GPM Horizon will accelerate the transition towards a cleaner energy future” said Ditlev Engel, CEO of DNV GL – Energy. “A future in which digitalisation will be a key enabler for effective performance of renewable assets, but also an increasingly complex future in which it will be more difficult for owners, analysts and operators to access the specific data for managing large portfolios with a mix of technologies”.
Beyond the control room, GPM Horizon enables customised operation and management workflows. This allows renewable energy developers and owners to monitor and manage their fleet in real-time covering multi-technology renewable energy portfolios for current and future systems.
Functionality for managing wind generation and energy storage will be rolled out later this year. DNV GL will be demonstrating GPM Horizon’s capabilities at Intersolar Europe in Hall B2, stand 113.
