To offer its software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, enersis needed an efficient cloud infrastructure to handle data from multiple sources and datasets of up to 3 TB. By building its solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS), enersis gains scalability, saves time, and enhances security.
Founded in 2011, enersis provides gaia to over 1,800 municipalities in Germany and Switzerland, impacting over 13.1 million inhabitants. enersis combines its own curated data from public governmental sources with customer data to create a digital twin of a city, which can include years of utility measurements.
To manage this confidential data and help comply with the General Data Protection Regulation, enersis needed a secure, scalable infrastructure that was cost effective and offered advanced visualization capabilities. In 2018, it started building gaia on AWS. “We chose AWS because we thought it was the most technologically advanced solution,” says Thomas Koller, founder and CEO at enersis.
Although countries have reported their climate actions since 1990, the Paris Agreement, a treaty aiming to reduce climate change, mandates a consensus climate goal for all signatories starting in 2024. To facilitate the transition for cities, regions, and utility providers, Swiss climate-technology pioneer enersis built gaia.
