Kaiserwetter focuses on AI and IoT in the fight against climate change

This enables to minimize investment risks in renewables while maximizing returns. To do so, large sets of technical and financial data from wind and solar energy installations are aggregated, structured and analyzed. On the platform itself, these analyses are enriched with information from external sources such as meteorological and soon, electricity market data and are translated into key performance indicators (KPI) and dashboards.

Investors, asset owners and financing banks have the opportunity to grasp and determine their portfolios’ operative and financial status, current and future returns, the degree of potential performance s, as well as emerging challenges regarding investments and loans granted, Kaiserwetter said.

The integration of artificial intelligence, particularly machine learning, within the ARISTOTELES platform enables a predictive analytics approach that allows for an early detection of operative risks and potential technical failures before becoming effective. On this basis, the future performance of renewable energy installations can be precisely forecasted. With this new level of transparency, investors and financiers can immediately react to new developments and redefine their own investment strategies based on the aggregated data, Kaiserwetter continues.

"Achieving the Paris climate targets is essential. Only by using IoT and AI can we respond effectively and immediately to this global challenge. The SAP Innovation Award not only recognizes our technical achievements, but also acknowledges our contribution to the global energy revolution", said Kaiserwetter CEO Hanno Schoklitsch, delighted with the award.
