Transformer Substations

Alfen has been the primary supplier of transformer substations for many grid operators. Based on a close cooperation, there is a very high chance that the energy you are using at this very moment, was at one point transformed and divided by an Alfen substation.

Grid Automation

Erado is a module that is integrated into transformer substations to easily connect them to the cloud. It offers grid operators real-time insights in and control over the electricity grid. The grid operator can easily switch public lighting on or off over the internet, while checking how much energy is used exactly and immediately notify any malfunction.

Energy Storage


In order to future-proof the electricity grid, Alfen offers a complete system for storing electric energy. This allows for the storage of energy that was generated in decentralized setting, for instance by solar panels, wind turbines and other sustainable sources. Peaks and troughs in the grid are absorbed by batteries, so that every bit of generated energy is optimally used.
