TerniEnergia, a smart company listed on the Italian Stock Exchange’s electronic share market (MTA) and part of the Italeaf Group, communicates that the digital company Softeco Sismat has signed a partnership agreement with Ailux Srl, a digital connection company, to develop innovative solutions for flexible aggregation services of electrical resources (UVAM).

The strategic alliance provides for the development and distribution of a platform for the management of Virtual Mixed Aggregated Units (UVAM) called LIBRAX, to participate in the Dispatching Services Market (MSD) of the Electric System as envisaged by Terna’s pilot projects.

The agreement aims to create an end-to-end solution for the entire operating process of BSPs (Balancing Service Providers) that automates the entire operating process (measurement, communication with Terna, execution of orders, monitoring of commands, offers on the MSD/MB market) and is largely interoperable with business processes. In order to provide a complete outsourcing of BSP operations, the project also provides for the creation of a Virtual Control Centre in compliance with the requirements of the “UVAM Regulation” and the management and marketing of LIBRAX and the service provided through the Control Centre itself.

The three-year partnership will make it possible to exploit the know-how of two leading companies in their markets of reference: Softeco in the development of ICT technologies and hardware and software solutions for digital energy and Ailux in the design and implementation of solutions based on most digital communication technologies.

LIBRAX will focus on the development of a new market segment consisting, among others, of potential customers such as service companies, market operators, utilities, traders, managers / operators of production or consumption sites, consortium companies for purchase, sale and resale.

The solution can be provided either as an in house installation at the BSP data centre or as a service (UVAx-aaS), in order to relieve the customer of the need to set up his own highly reliable and manned service centre.
