Whitepaper: Energy storage – providing industrial automation solutions to the energy sector

Renewable and efficient energy is vital when it comes to facing the challenges of global warming. However, renewable energy generated by wind, water, or solar power is not continuously available. Therefore, the energy needs to be stored, e.g. in hydrogen-based electricity storage solutions, so it can be made available on demand.

Such modern energy storage solutions need full machine data transparency, an open, extensible software control system, and secure remote access. As they are often located in remote areas without connection to the electrical grid and sparse internet connectivity, implementing industrial automation solutions is extremely challenging. TTTech Industrial’s open edge computing platform Nerve helps to successfully overcome these challenges.

In a technical whitepaper, TTTech Industrial shows how energy storage solutions provider GKN Hydrogen uses Nerve to enable easier real-time machine data access, better software management, and offline operation. Find out more and download the whitepaper here.
