The ennexOS cross-sector platform supports the planning, setup and operation of energy systems with complex asset hierarchies. As the world's first software orchestration for commercial and private energy consumers, it optimizes energy management of photovoltaics, battery storage, heat pumps, boilers, and combined heat and power plants. The platform offers clear and fast user-flows through all system hierarchies such as portfolio, plant groups, plants, units, and devices. Efficient analysis dashboards and UX-monitoring functions, as well as customized modules, make ennexOS the leading energy management system of the future.
