The partner of choice for DSOs worldwide
The partner of choice for DSOs worldwide
We help electricity distributors move into the future of energy, providing digital technologies and solutions that transform today’s power networks in tomorrow’s smart grids.
The pace of change in energy production, distribution and consumption is posing a challenge to Distribution System Operators worldwide and to anyone who wants to accelerate the energy transition by starting with the digitalization of electricity distribution networks. Reaching carbon neutrality by 2050, when global energy demand is also projected to increase by 50%, calls for massive electrification across all sectors, and for an exponential growth of renewable energy. This, in turn, makes the modernization of power grids a global priority.
Designed over a century ago, today’s grids are not prepared for the growth of electricity demand, the intermittent flow from renewables, the integration of active prosumers and distributed generation.
At Gridspertise, we partner with DSOs all over the world to upgrade their distribution systems by adding intelligence and preparing them for the future. Our mission is to deliver a new era of sustainable and reliable smart grids through innovative, flexible and customer-driven digital solutions that are circular by design.
Our vision is to upgrade grid users’ experience through cutting cloud-edge sustainable solutions for the digitalization of electricity distribution networks, making energy infrastructure fit to meet the evolving needs of grid users and electricity end customers, accelerating our electric future.
Trusted partner for the digitalization of electricity networks
We were founded in 2021 as a subsidiary of the Enel Group, the world’s leading privately owned distribution grid operator. Since December 2022 we have been jointly owned by Enel and the leading global alternative investment manager CVC Capital Partners, who support our mission of digitalizing power grids to accelerate the electric future.
Our DNA combines the agility of a startup with distinctive expertise in the world of smart grids.
We leverage Enel’s powerful legacy in operating distribution networks around the globe, testing new technologies in a variety of contexts and rolling out effective solutions. We have also inherited a significant intellectual property portfolio of more than 430 patents and our solutions are field-proven thanks to the over 20 years’ experience of the Enel Group, which is a world leader in advanced digital metering with more than 45 million installed smart meters, over 2.3 million kilometers of electricity transmission and distribution grids, and hundreds of thousands of remote control points serving more than 75 million customers.
Thanks to a decentralized global organization, our highly skilled, diversified and dynamic team is perfectly positioned to work with DSOs everywhere in the world, understanding their needs and offering tailored solutions. We serve developing as well as developed countries and manage infrastructure from rural areas to megacities.
We partner with DSOs to help them advance their power distribution networks. We develop end-to-end digital platforms that include metering, grid management, field operations. Our portfolio is designed as an open ecosystem, easy to integrate with Distribution System Operators' legacy systems, combining intelligent grid devices with ready-to-use modular applications, running at central level as well as on the edge and can be adapted to existing or emerging needs, also thanks to our network of research labs and partnerships. We work with world class technological partners, startups and innovators to constantly improve and expand our products and services. To this, we add in-depth knowledge of regulations, technical norms and requirements in different parts of the world.
Our solutions bring benefits to all actors in the electricity ecosystem:
For DSOs They increase service quality, reduce operating costs, optimize investments in new infrastructure, and enhance safety, productivity and sustainability.
For grid users They provide a platform to integrate distributed energy resources and facilitate the development of the energy service market.
For end customers They increase the reliability of the electricity supply, facilitate electrification, foster energy efficiency and make it easier to become active in energy markets.
Meet our management team
Understand the needs of DSOs worldwide
At Gridspertise, we are uniquely positioned to understand DSOs requirements in different regions around the world. We work with more than 50 DSOs of different sizes and in different geographies, and in 2022 we delivered over 5 million intelligent devices. Our headquartered is in Italy with offices in Spain, Brazil, India and the United States. We have a strong presence in Europe and Latin America and we are ramping operations in North America, while we are expanding towards Asia-Pacific and Africa, where investment in smart grids will drive infrastructure upgrade projects in the near future.
We are an accelerator of the energy transition
As an accelerator of the transition to clean and renewable energy we strive to deliver integrated solutions that are sustainable by design. All our technologies are intended to help DSOs reduce their carbon footprint facilitating a zero-emission future, while boosting the achievement of the UN SDGs.
