Evalan’s BACE IoT Platform is one of the innovations that the jury identified in its selection report. BACE is a versatile plug-and-play IoT connector that enables fast implementation of remote monitoring and SCADA solutions. This is relevant, for example in managing the electricity grid and optimizing energy use at sites. Use cases such as curtailment, peak shaving, battery use optimization and adherence to feed-in limits all contribute to reducing grid congestion. With BACE these functions can be easily implemented in solar power facilities, and expanded with add-ons like smart power management to reduce costs
