Access to a stable and secure supply of electricity is an important piece of the future sustainable society. In a lab at Lund University’s Faculty of Engineering, an idea for using advanced data analysis to support a robust smart grid, took form. From there, dLab has grown into a global provider of a decision support system enabling DSOs to move towards data-driven operations and a robust, and reliable smart grid.

The dLab research project begins at Lund University of Technology (LTH) under the leadership of Magnus Akke. In the wake of Gudrun, a devastating storm that hit Southern Sweden in 2005, the idea took root to find a smart, sustainable solution enhancing proactive measures, reducing power outages and creating a more resilient grid.
The first measurements and analysis of real faults on the grid are performed. The company builds a data base for developing the analytics platform, using real data instead of simulations.
dLaboratory Sweden AB is created in order to commercially market the research results, and the first contracts with customers are signed. The unique software solution called dAnalyzer is launched. dAnalyzer transforms big data into useful information, easily accessible through a device of choice, supporting both grid operations and planning department.
Regional energy company Kraftringen equips almost its entire power grid with dAnalyzer. The roll out begins in 2017 and ends in 2021. By then more than 25 of Kraftringens substations are equipped with the sensor dBox and the data analysis software, dAnalyzer.
Now the company grows fast and new applications such as dQuality, are launched. In 2019, with a set of new investors, the company embarks on an internationalization – reaching out to markets across Europe as well as Asia.
First international customer signs up for dLabs solution. And steady grow in market, both in and outside of Sweden, leads to a planned IPO in early 2021.
