Secure data exchange and collaboration
for smart city planning and grid infrastructure

Analyze, simulate, and accelerate plans to add new DERs to the grid.

The evolution of grid planning

The electric grid has traditionally been centralized. Now, the ever increasing number of distributed energy resources (DERs) has begun to transform the grid into a decentralized system.

DERs can include solar panels, storage assets (EVs and batteries), building energy management systems, and more. As a result, grid planners need operational visibility into a variety of data sources and formats, especially as they try to integrate evolving DER planning technology with existing infrastructure.

A trusted data collaboration platform

When making decisions about grid planning, operators need to be able to visualize and inspect energy data on a granular level. This sensitive grid data could include data from or about power lines, substations, transformers, and more. 

Intertrust allows grid operators, grid planners, and partners to accelerate  grid planning  by making energy data securely available for collaboration.

Ensure secure data interoperability

  • Orchestrate grid data across multiple internal and external sources
  • Connect and correlate internal and external data sources
  • Securely share sensitive grid data with pre-authorized partners
