Proven to lower costs & increase energy efficiency in deregulated markets

The clean energy transition is accelerating — but the reliability of renewable energy supplies from solar, wind and water is key. Thus, accurate load forecasting and asset optimization are valuable advantages in the market.

What tools let you preview the consequences from decisions you may make about your energy portfolio? What if you can foresee the effects on resources from generating stations and power plants?

Progress toward the delivery of sustainable energy at the lowest possible cost and highest profit, and let our industry-leading, secure IT innovations help you conserve resources and minimize CO2 emissions.

Be a successful energy market participant as our SaaS or enterprise software optimizes your assets and the lifecycle of your systems with regard to new construction and expansion planning as well as daily operations.

    Flexible application / use in many areas

    Use our forecasting and optimization solutions in all areas of energy generation, storage, procurement, supply and distribution:

    • Conventional power plants

    • District heating generation, supply networks and storage

    • Gas portfolio optimization

    • Industry (energy supply of the production plants, material flows of the production)

    • Hydroelectric power stations and storage facilities

    • Renewable energy generation, transport, conversion, storage (solar and wind)

    • Virtual power plants

    • Cross references of sector coupling

    Apply this IT for short-, medium- and long-term planning as well as evaluating expansion and new construction plans as you take into account the respective cross-references.

  • Easy to use, configure and automate

    Easy to use, configure and automate

    Model the entire spectrum of the energy industry using a visual / graphical interface and many pre-configured modules (e.g. for generation and industrial plants, renewable energies, supply networks, trading). The solution translates your insights into a mathematical model that takes all essential technical and economic restrictions into account. Then, it provides realistic, feasible results.

  • Cloud solution for more flexibility

    The complete forecasting & optimization solution is available via web browser over a secure connection.

    This software as a service (SaaS) or the ability to use the software online — all or just parts of it, by a specific number of users and over a specific period of time — makes our innovation more affordable than the actual purchase.

    Additional SaaS options include backup service, monitoring, on-call service, update service and administrative support.

    Our ISO-certified KISTERScloud, co-located with our international headquarters in Aachen, Germany, makes setup easy and IT maintenance a fraction of the cost of ownership.

    Of course, you can also choose an on-premises concept, which will integrate seamlessly into your ancillary processes and systems like trade and control systems.
