Berlin, August 15, 2022 - PSI Software AG has been nominated for the Innovation Award of the German Gas Industry 2022 in the category "Intelligent Infrastructure". The PSI business unit Gas Grids and Pipelines had applied for this in advance with the software product PSIcontrol/Greengas. This supports network operators in converting their gas networks for the transport of renewable gases.
With PSIcontrol/Greengas Version 8, control specifications for energy-equivalent gas deliveries can be calculated in the required gas quality. Hydrogen hubs, bio-methane and LNG deliveries can thus be integrated into the energy system by gas network operators via the well-developed gas network. For the grid infrastructure, hydrogen compatibility requirements as well as its compatibility states are visualized. Feed-ins of hydrogen, bio-methane or LNG can be simulated.
This year's Innovation Award of the German gas industry focuses on Re:Inventing Energy. The jury of the 22nd Innovation Award of the German Gas Industry has nominated 12 projects from 52 applications in the four categories "Application-oriented Research", "Efficient Application Technology", "Intelligent Infrastructure" and "Sustainable Generation" for the Innovation Award.
The nominated projects will be presented in digital events from September 14 to October 5. The Innovation Award ceremony will take place on October 12, 2022 in Berlin.
The sponsors of this year's award are the industry associations Bundesverband der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft (BDEW), Deutscher Verein des Gas- und Wasserfaches (DVGW) and Zukunft Gas. The Innovation Award's competence partner is the Association for the Economical and Environmentally Friendly Use of Energy (ASUE). The company Wintershall Dea supports the award as a partner.
The PSI Group develops its own software products for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy grids, energy trading, public transport) and industry (metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). The industry-specific products, which are built from standard components, are sold both directly and via the multi-cloud PSI App Store and can also be customized by customers and partners themselves. PSI was founded in 1969 and employs over 2,200 people worldwide.
