E4SAlliance  Expands Grid Digitization Ecosystem

Today, Gridspertise is joining the Edge for Smart Secondary Substations (E4S) Alliance, created to develop a standard, flexible, manageable and interoperable platform for next-generation Smart Grids. Having some of the largest distribution system operators in the world partnering with technology providers to co-develop an entirely new solution will revolutionize the energy transition and help achieve a climate-neutral economy. The E4S Alliance is helping digitize the grid and make it data driven in order to meet carbon neutrality.   Distribution System Operators (DSOs) will benefit from an open standard based secure and highly scalable platform to monitor, protect and control the electrical grid. Virtualization of applications, in combination with edge computing leads to lower total cost of ownership, faster time to market for new applications and more efficient management and delivery of electricity.

About Gridspertise
Gridspertise offers grid intelligent devices, end-to-end cloud-edge platform solutions and services to accelerate the digital transformation of electricity distribution grids across three main areas: metering and grid edge digitalization, network infrastructure digitalization, field operation digitalization. The Company’s portfolio is designed as an open ecosystem, easy to integrate with Distribution System Operators' existing infrastructure, combining intelligent and automated grid devices with ready-to-use modular applications, running at central level as well as on the edge. The Company was set up in 2021 as a carve-out of Enel’s twenty-year-long experience in developing, testing, and scaling up digital technologies to transform legacy distribution networks into smart grids. Gridspertise is today jointly controlled by the Enel Group and the leading global alternative investment manager CVC Capital Partners. The Company has inherited a significant intellectual property portfolio of over 430 patents and combines its expertise in grid digitalization with cutting-edge solutions from leading technology partners to tackle the evolving digitalization needs of the energy market. Gridspertise is headquartered in Italy with subsidiaries in Spain, Brazil, India and the United States. Current target markets include Europe, Latin America and North America, expanding towards Asia-Pacific and Africa, where investments in power grids will drive infrastructure upgrade projects in the near future.
