Ampacimon is a leading provider of Grid Enhancing Technology
Widespread rollout of renewables and growing energy demand are pushing existing grid infrastructure to its limits. Utilities are increasingly using grid enhancing technologies to better match supply and demand in real time, while minimizing costs and maintaining the stability and reliability of the grid.
Ampacimon was founded in 2010 as a spin-off of the University of Liege. The company offers hardware (sensors) and software to allow real-time monitoring of high-voltage lines, enabling TSOs to manage congestion on the grid. As a result, TSOs can prevent lengthy and expensive cable replacement investments, while integrating more renewables on the grid. Thanks to Ampacimon’s patented DLR technology, TSOs can increase capacity at peak moments up to 30%.
Ampacimon has deployed a large number of DLR systems at major utility companies in Europe (Elia, EDF, Red Electrica, RTE, etc.), North America (PPL, Hydro Québec, etc.) and beyond (National Grid, Tepco, etc.). Customers select Ampacimon based on the unparalleled quality of its technology.
Enforced by regulatory stimuli and its large societal benefits (a.o. avoiding re-dispatching), Ampacimon is now rapidly scaling its technologies internationally.
