Sense Reply was founded in 2017 by a team of professionals with extensive experience in the Energy & Utility sector and with a clear vision of the evolution required by global operating models and technological components in all segments of the value chain.
Sense Reply’s mission is to provide its customers with the complete set of skills necessary to design, implement and adopt, on a large scale, new processes and services for generation, transport, distribution, sales, self-generation, storage and energy optimisation.
an IoT leader in Europe, has specialised its technological capabilities for each business sector.
The new management models of the Energy & Utilities sector require real-time control of an increasing number of operating variables and the collection and analysis of an ever-growing volume of data.
The Internet of Things paradigms and solutions have become central to today’s system architectures, enabling the new processes and mission-critical services on which all operators in the sectors rely.
We have witnessed a major evolution of regulatory frameworks over the last few decades. In Europe, this has resulted in the European Green Deal, the climate law that enshrines the commitment to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 and the intermediate target of reducing net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. Achieving zero emissions by 2050 undoubtedly requires fundamental changes in every sector of our economy by the end of the current decade. Moreover, this major transformation calls for an unprecedented acceleration of public and private investment in the research and implementation – on an industrial scale – of new technologies for the generation, distribution and efficient use of energy based on IoT architecture.
Sense Reply has led important projects in Italy and abroad to adopt these technologies in the various segments of the energy value chain, using architectures in line with the most modern principles of platformisation, microservices and virtualisation.Sense Reply has designed, developed and implemented solutions to enable large industrial customers to acquire the ability to monitor the energy consumption of industrial plants or private installations (including customers belonging to energy communities or consortia) and to couple micro-generation and storage systems to these. Sense Reply has also had the opportunity to support operators of low-voltage distribution networks in the introduction of IoT technologies in order to acquire data from measuring systems, to monitor the operating status of electrical components such as transformers and of physical assets such as secondary substations.
In addition, decarbonisation requires a drastic change in the transport sector, which will have to face a significant penetration of electric vehicles. Electric transportation business models are based on the ability to rely on open IoT platforms that enable interaction between drivers, service providers and charging infrastructure. Sense Reply has enabled communication with more than 40 different types of charging systems, integrating them into complex management processes on an international scale. In addition, Sense Reply has designed, developed and implemented demand aggregation systems for operators intending to participate in energy flexibility events and large demand response systems for global operators, serving more than 30 flexibility and storage programmes in many countries around the world.
Sense Reply is an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, and has obtained the AWS Energy Competency status. Thanks to its proven experience in the implementation of successful projects using AWS technologies, Sense Reply is able to provide support for energy monitoring and optimisation, energy aggregation, micro-grid management, electric car management, IoT smart metering, the monitoring and optimisation of production from renewable energy sources and more.
Sense Reply relies on its IoT Accelerator to speed up the implementation of Industrial IoT Solutions for large companies, thus allowing customers to reduce the costs, timelines and risks related to the transformation of their processes, as well as enabling the design and launch of new products and services. The IoT Accelerator builds on the existing AWS capabilities, including AWS IoT and AWS Greengrass, and is ready to integrate with the new AWS IoT SiteWise, AWS IoT Event, and AWS IoT Things Graph services.
Sense Reply leverages its Cloud automation,
IoT and energy sector expertise using AWS PaaS microservices for the development of fully automated IoT platforms and for the creation of business applications natively integrated with these, as well as with the most advanced asset management, data analytics and machine learning services, specific for the Energy & Utilities sector.
