Australasian renewables company Tilt Renewables has signed a deal to use Cloud technology for data analysis of its wind, solar and hydropower plants.
Tilt operates eight windfarms in Australia and New Zealand and has another seven wind projects, three solar farms and one hydro plant under development across the two countries.
It has selected Swedish technology firm Greenbyte for management and data analysis of its projects. Greenbyte’s solution Energy Cloud works by remotely connecting power plants to a Cloud platform via onsite SCADA systems. Greenbyte says that currently 14 GW of renewable energy across 30 countries are monitored by the software. The deal with Tilt marks the first time that Greenbyte Energy Cloud has been deployed in Australia and New Zealand.
Last month German energy company Encavis chose Greenbyte Energy Cloud for its renewables data management of 236 wind and solar PV projects in nine European countries.
