DNV GL is launching GPM Horizon, a data monitoring platform with full integration of renewable energy systems, including solar PV, wind power and energy storage.
According to DNV GL, GPM Horizon enables future-proof fleet management by bringing digitalization technologies and integrated renewables systems together in one platform.
The new solution builds on the combined experience of GreenPowerMonitor and DNV GL: GPM’s Plus solar asset management software and DNV GL’s Windhelm wind farm portfolio management software tool.
DNV GL acquired GreenPowerMonitor in June 2016, uniting DNV GL’s existing wind energy data tools with GreenPowerMonitor’s digital solar solutions. To date, GreenPowerMonitor is managing 10 GW of solar PV plants in over 51 countries globally. Functionality for managing wind generation and energy storage will be rolled out on the platform later this year.
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, says DNV GL. In addition, advanced alarms ensure no events are missed.
Beyond the control room, GPM Horizon enables customized 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.
Juan-Carlos Arevalo, CEO of GreenPowerMonitor, says, “We now offer the first solution to collect and manage data from multiple assets and multiple technologies in one single platform. It is flexible and easily scalable to accommodate customers who want to expand their portfolios in the future with more assets or new technologies.”
