Wartsila has entered into a cooperation agreement with Greensmith Energy to further strengthen its energy system integration capabilities.
Greensmith Energy, a leading provider of energy storage software and integration services, will provide the full optimization software needed for hybrid energy systems.
Through this partnership Wärtsilä broadens its portfolio to cover system integration solutions for all sources of energy. The Greensmith Energy GEMS platform is the world’s most widely-deployed and proven energy integration software.
With its robust yet flexible feature functionality, GEMS continues to set the standard for grid-scale, behind-the-meter, and micro grid storage control architecture.
Wärtsilä Energy Solutions president Javier Cavada said: “Considering the market trends and our vision of being the best overall energy solutions provider, this partnership is a natural, yet significant step for us in becoming an even more attractive market player.”
As a combined solution, Wärtsilä’s Smart Power Generation and solar PV, together with Greensmith’s integration capabilities, will provide sustainable, reliable, and affordable power — particularly in countries and regions with limited or small-scale electricity grids.
Cavada said: "We selected Greensmith Energy as a technology partner because of their extensive industry know-how and expertise in delivering safe and reliable grid-scale system integration solutions."
Greensmith Energy president and CEO John Jung said: “We are honoured to establish this partnership with a world-class organization like Wärtsilä as we continue to fulfill our vision to deploy the world’s most advanced energy storage solutions to every corner of the world.”
