Elia Group launches re.alto, the first European marketplace for energy data
 
Elia Group has announced the official launch of its own start-up: re.alto. This digital marketplace brings together data from suppliers and consumers and exchanges it via standardised energy APIs. This makes energy data accessible and more quickly integratable, enabling the energy industry to take a huge digital leap forward towards customer-centric business models that offer energy services. This is a key stage in the transition to a sustainable energy system.

Boucle du Hainaut
Video about the Boucle du Hainaut project

Elia has completed a series of information sessions for the Boucle du Hainaut project in Hainaut Province. Stretching approximately 84 kilometres, this will be one of Elia's largest infrastructure projects in Belgium. The planned 380-kV line between Avelgem and Courcelles is a missing link in the Belgian high-voltage grid. Why is the project needed? How was the proposed corridor determined? What were the alternatives and why have some not been used? Elia addresses the most frequently asked questions in an educational video.

MOG weather station restored via augmented reality
Elia's offshore team has successfully tested the Hololens 2 Remote Assist programme. These new-generation augmented reality headsets enable remote technical support. Thanks to the headsets, experts in the office can see through the eyes of the technicians in the field. Via the headset they can display manuals, technical drawings and navigation arrows in augmented reality. This new method was recently tested when the Norwegian supplier of the Modular Offshore Grid weather system had to cancel planned repairs due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Elia team was able to carry out maintenance itself with remote support from the supplier.
