How the Smart Grid Manager will help your installation

Fully managed middleware for your solar farm

The Smart Grid Manager is a fully managed middleware solution. It is a scalable and secure bridge between your solar farm and asset & energy management systems.

Edge computer

Our solution comes with a customizable edge computer that will be installed at your solar farm. This weather resistant box includes connectors to your digital and analogue systems, plus the connectivity to offload the data into your database.

Streaming data

The telemetry data from your inverters, batteries and sensors will be securely streamed to the desired endpoint. That could be in the cloud or directly into your asset & energy management systems. Streaming occurs up to once per second.

Smart Solar API

The solution comes with the Smart Solar Control Module, allowing you to manage the inverter and battery settings from your Energy Management System (EMS). Curtail the inverters or peak shave any excess solar energy. It’s your choice.


Creating a smart solar grid

Sunrock is the largest solar energy company in The Netherlands. We implemented our smart energy middleware solution to monitor and control their solar farms in the most optimal way.

Benefits for Sunrock

Our Smart Solar Solution puts Sunrock in charge of their solar energy management. Integration with their asset management increases uptime. Control over inverter management increases revenues by trading energy output for spot market prices.

Why Helin's Smart Grid Manager?

We put you in charge of your solar farm

The fast-evolving solar industry demands agility in operating solar assets and in optimizing production. The Smart Grid Manager helps you take charge of your different assets with your uniform energy strategy.

Standardize assets

You need to standardize your operation, but want to be able to use different brands of inverters and batteries. We enable you to select the right brand for your farm, while keeping your management unified.

Increase revenues

Curtailing your inverters and peak-shaving your production increases your revenues by up to 25%. This will become even more important as increasing congestion causes increasing issues on the grid.

Manage costs

The Smart Grid Manager is plug-and-play, low-overhead middleware. It means you don’t have to build a large infrastructure team and allows you to pay full attention to the analytics and control instead.
