ERS will focus on sales and consulting of KISTERS’ solutions for forecasting, virtual power plants, big data & data analytics, and asset optimization. The solutions support the business of energy retailers, generators, network operators and energy intensive end users. ERS is now the primary contact for all British companies interested in KISTERS’ cutting-edge solutions. Moreover ERS will represent KISTERS at energy events and conferences, and will organize specialist webinars in the energy domain. The agreement is effective from the 1st January 2018.
"The cooperation is a recipe for success. We are pleased to have ERS experienced consultants on our side and rely on its knowledge of the UK market" says Klaus Kisters, CEO of KISTERS AG.

Pioneering software solutions for the energy industry
The comprehensive KISTERS portfolio includes solutions for energy data management, forecasting, virtual power plant management, portfolio management, metering, smart grid/control technology/SCADA and lifecycle and asset management of plants and grids. In particular, the efficient Virtual Power Plant Manager VPPM has now proven itself in use throughout Europe. VPPM allows companies to operate their volatile small producers of renewable energy more efficiently, economical and ecologically friendly, and to participate at several markets. Of course, KISTERS’ precise forecasts - e.g. load forecasts to predict and plan energy consumption and prices - are integrated to VPPM.
Following the success of the first webinar on energy demand forecasting organized by ERS, plans are now in progress to offer a webinar about virtual power plant management soon. Above that, joint activities for energy events e.g. E-world in Essen/Germany are already underway.
