Elhub and smart meters are enabling a more efficient Norwegian energy system
Efficient management of meter data is the key to unleashing the potential of smart meters. Data must also be protected against cyber-attacks, while still being easily accessible for market actors. A data hub, such as Elhub in Norway, is able to meet these needs. In Norway, an innovative start-up company has also shown that it is possible to use meter data, along with electricity price profiles and smart home components, to help customers save electricity costs, and at the same time ease the bottlenecks in the power grid. The goal of zero emissions by 2050 requires new and smarter solutions, and Elhub’s powerful system can provide a significant contribution.
