Helin Achieves Dutch RfG (RTI) Certification: Leading the Way in Smart Grid Innovation

We are all facing the increasing challenges of managing the current power grid's capacity with the grid congestion. RfG stands out as a crucial driver for creating harmonized solutions and products essential for an efficient pan-European (and global) power grid, where we need more direct control and flexibility. Helin's innovative Industrial Edge Intelligence Platform is uniquely positioned to assist clients in navigating these complexities with its cutting-edge Smart Grid Manager.

Helin’s plug-and-play Smart Grid Manager offers, besides RfG compliance (RTI in the Netherlands), comprehensive solutions, including Curtailment API, Asset Data Management, Energy Management System, and 100% secure data ownership.

The platform ensures full control over proprietary energy strategies and top-tier cybersecurity, while Helin manages the middleware. With a fully managed, worry-free infrastructure, clients can focus on energy management. This approach accelerates time to value and boosts revenues through inverter curtailment and peak shaving, significantly increasing solar energy income and enabling spot market trading.

Martijn Handels, CTO of Helin, expressed his pride in the team's achievement, stating, “We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the frontrunners in the world with this certification. The fact that none of the established vendors are certified yet indicates that we have a very innovative solution. The great thing is our platform is already fully prepared and operational for the future requirements of the RTI in 2026, where secure internet connections will play a critical role. So, our clients can be assured we have a proven, future-ready setup."

Marijke Vos, Chair of the RTI steering group, added, "We are very pleased that after the publication of the Dutch Real-Time Interface standard, a handful of parties, including Helin, are offering a Real-Time Interface product, giving owners of solar and wind parks a choice!"

Helin's commitment to innovation and excellence continues to position it at the forefront of the industry, providing clients with the tools and technologies necessary for a sustainable and profitable energy future.
