We are Aidon
We are an established supplier of smart grid and smart metering technology and services in the Nordics. From our earliest days in 2004 to the present, we have been helping distribution system operators (DSOs) boost the reliability of electricity distribution.
We create the future of smarter grids
We want to be at the forefront of developing and deploying Industrial Internet and smart grid technology to Nordic DSOs, our customers. Our people in Finland, Sweden and Norway work together with them to digitalise their services and run their operations more efficiently.
Our customers operate, maintain, and develop the energy distribution systems in their area. Based on smart metering, as well as on the refinement and utilisation of grid data, our solutions enable DSOs to achieve their primary responsibility: to ensure the faultless delivery of electricity to end users. We help them better manage risks, detect and fix problems faster, and cope with the demands of the smarter grid.
We lead the way
Big changes are under way in the energy sector. In recent years, global conditions have continued to challenge it.
The issue of climate change, for instance, has become a defining feature in energy policy-making. To meet emission goals, it’s necessary to generate electricity from renewables, reduce its consumption and improve its efficiency.
Rapid technology development is also changing the way energy is produced and consumed. Digitalisation is altering the energy market, and the move is leading to the elasticity of demand, the emergence of automated networks and processes, the availability of data, analytics, and preventive and predictive maintenance actions.
Managing these shifts is now more crucial than ever before.
Aidon recognises that the transition towards more renewable energy is creating both opportunities and challenges to secure the global energy infrastructure. As a dynamic company, we understand what’s valuable for our customers. Together with DSOs, we work out a future-ready proposal that suits their needs and at the same time, enables consumers to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
