With its software modules for forecasting and optimizing energy, the Thuringian technology company ifesca supplies important components for an intelligent energy consulting solution from Linde Material Handling. With the help of the innovative solution from ifesca, Linde Material Handling customers can better plan and ensure the energy consumption of their industrial trucks.
The economical and efficient use of energy is increasingly becoming the focus of attention - not only due to rising prices for electricity and fuel, but also to save CO2 and thus contribute to climate protection.
Ifesca GmbH specializes in the prediction and optimization of energy data and has developed AI-based solutions for energy management in the industrial environment. Together with Linde Material Handling, the Thuringian start-up company now wants to open up additional customer segments. Advantage of the software: charging time windows for industrial trucks with lead acid or lithium-ion batteries can be precisely planned and demand peaks smoothed out in order to save costs. In addition, the solution enables management of the entire operational energy requirement.
A first joint pilot project by ifesca and Linde Material Handling has already started successfully, with others to follow and ensure that the solution fits the specific requirements of Linde customers even better.
There was a first joint presentation of the holistic energy solution at the E-world energy & water trade fair in Essen (February 11-13).
