„We can’t change the wind but we can adjust our sails“

five continents. one solution.

ARISTOTELES is a cloud based IoT platform using the possibilities of Smart Data Analytics and Predictive Data Simulation by aggregating and correlating all technical, meteorological and, crucially, financial data with the goals of: permanently maximizing the asset performance, minimizing investment risks, simplifying portfolio monitoring and benchmarking and giving the possibility to implement lean organizational set-ups. It is designed as the digital solution to support several players in addressing their challenges in an increasingly competitive environment.

The ARISTOTELES platform is following an executive level approach. The intention of this digital platform is providing insights to the top level of the management by focussing on the granting transparency to the technical performance without being an energy expert. Furthermore ARISTOTELES has its USP in the ability to integrate all financials as our clients such as capital investors and financing institutions require a full financial overview.

We partnered with SAP as we believe that winners in the area of digital start-ups will be the ones investing in business ideas rather than in technology. The USP of Aristoteles is the capability to aggregate the technical, meteorological and financial data by displaying smart data analytics in bespoke designed dashboards.

Portfolio Management

The power behind renewables

As part of our portfolio management, data aggregation is one of the central elements of digitization “made by Kaiserwetter”. By creating a structured database that cannot be manipulated, we are able to implement Big Data Analytics in a user-oriented manner. Our innovative strength lies in the fact that in addition to technical data, we present above all the financial data of wind and solar parks in a cloud-based Internet-of-Things solution. 

Aristoteles enables us to prepare the performance data of the generating units as well as the financial data for our customers at arbitrary aggregation levels, from a single turbine all the way to country portfolios, so that they can be displayed transparently in dashboards with a simple mouse click. The clear benefit for our customers is especially evident in the functionalities for the financial data, including the cash flows and the budget analysis. This allows them to optimally control their individual portfolios or assets at an executive level. 

Integrated variance analyses based on meteorological data can quickly identify “underperforming assets”. This makes it possible to take immediate action to maximize the performance accordingly. In addition, we also offer a richly varied presentation of the aggregated data which opens up completely new possibilities for controlling, benchmarking and reporting. All this without geographical limits thanks to our cloud-based IoT approach which allows us to aggregate data from almost anywhere in the world.

With Aristoteles, Kaiserwetter has developed a digital innovation for portfolio management and consistently takes advantage of the possibilities offered by IoT and Big Data Analytics. Thus, we are able to take the added value of digitization and implement it for our customers in order to generate efficiency and cost savings. 

Risk Management

Maximising returns. Minimising risks.

Kaiserwetter-Risk-Management fulfills all national and international legal requirements (KonTraG, BilMoG, AktG, HGB, TransPuG, OR, etc.) and regulations (Basel II/III, BWG, MaRisk, Solvency II, AIFM, ESMA, Level 2 measures etc.). It also complies with all guidelines and standards (COSO, ISO 31000, ONR 49000, IDW, CGC, etc.).

The IT-based Kaiserwetter-Risk-Management service was created in collaboration with Opture AG, a company specialized in Risk Management (ERM) and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC). Opture® is one of the leading providers of professional and company-wide risk management systems in Europe. Under the slogan "Kaiserwetter-Risk-Management powered by Opture®", the product offers new efficient possibilities within the Risk-Management for renewable energies. The close integration of data from Kaiserwetter-Portfolio-Management with the high-performance risk management tool from Opture® is unique. Risk-Management consequently becomes a portfolio-wide management tool and thus goes far beyond the mere fulfilment of legal requirements and regulations that has been predominated so far.

Predictive Analytics

Predictive Analytics as a further component of Big Data Analytics will be one of the most important services for renewable energies in the future. This will be the only way in the future to significantly reduce the necessary CAPEX and OPEX. Another important starting point is to minimize the production downtime, which will play a crucial role for example in the offshore wind park segment. Kaiserwetter will consistently use and promote the possibilities of the Internet-of-Things in the implementation of Predictive Analytics in the field of renewable energy.

In addition to the data from the classic Condition Monitoring System (CMS), Kaiserwetter also integrates the performance data in an algorithm-based simulation model. Based on the data collected, we are able to suggest and implement risk prevention for our customers’ energy parks since the existing data pool allows us to categorize risks for different types of energy parks, so that Predictive Analytics in combination with the aggregated data from the portfolio management means much more than the minimization of production downtimes.

„With ARISTOTELES we can help minimise risk by simply showing whether or not an asset is performing at the optimum level.“
