Systems supplied by Capula control the transmission and distribution of electricity to meet the energy needs of over 14 million people.
We are one of the largest suppliers of substation control systems for the electricity network across the UK, supporting upgrades of critical national infrastructure to the most up to date industry standards, and have been at the forefront of technology innovation and digitalisation of physical assets for over 50 years.
As the UK focuses on a drive to net zero, transmission and distribution network operators play a critical role in maintaining operational resilience and reliability of supply, whilst learning how to manage in what will be an increasingly complex and dynamic environment.
Digitalisation is seen as the key to ensuring network stability in a fast changing energy landscape where an exponential growth in renewable energy generation, IIOT devices and sensors, electric vehicle charging, heat pumps and larger small scale battery storage are all predicted to be connected to the network in the next decade.
All of these factors demand new approaches in stabilising and optimising the network’s management and operations:
