Sweden’s fifth largest energy company Kraftringen chooses the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to meet future challenges and scale IT resources as needed

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – June 13, 2023 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise announces that Kraftringen, Sweden’s fifth largest energy company with operations in southern and western Sweden has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to modernize its IT infrastructure to quickly scale its capacity as needed in a competitive market.

Kraftringen is the fifth largest energy provider in Sweden with around 300,000 energy customers. The company’s vision is to create the most sustainable energy solutions for today and tomorrow. To achieve this vision, Kraftringen needed a modern and agile IT infrastructure that could support its critical mission of delivering energy to its customers and its digital transformation goals.

The company chose HPE GreenLake, the market-leading hybrid cloud platform which delivers cloud services that can run on-premises, at the edge, in a colocation facility, and in the public cloud. Additionally, Kraftringen will rely on HPE GreenLake to improve utilization levels, avoid the waste of overprovisioning, and minimize the resources required for power and cooling.1

Telia Cygate, the local partner of HPE in Sweden, has played a critical role in defining the technical aspects of the solution and delivering it. Telia Cygate has extensive experience in providing IT solutions for the public sector and has been working with Kraftringen for several years.

“As an IT manager, I wanted a solution that would ensure the availability and security of our IT operations, as we provide critical energy services to our customers. That’s why we chose HPE GreenLake and Telia Cygate,” said Richard Mauritsson, Head of IT operations and security at Kraftringen. “With HPE GreenLake, which offers a pay-as-you-use model, we can modernize our IT operations and support our business goals thanks to a better control of our costs and scalability of the platform, which enables us to adjust our capacity depending on our needs. This is crucial for our business, as we need to be agile and quick to respond to the market and deliver services to our customers at the required speed.”

Additionally, as an energy provider for thousands of citizens, Kraftringen needs to ensure that its data infrastructure is protected from cyberattacks and disasters. HPE GreenLake offers industry-leading ransomware protection, disaster recovery and data protection as a service for any application and any cloud.

“We are proud to support Kraftringen in their mission of providing sustainable energy solutions for their customers,” said Linda Swärd - Managing Director HPE Sweden. “HPE GreenLake will provide them with a flexible and secure IT platform that can scale with their needs and help them achieve their business goals.”

“The digitalization of the energy sector is critical for the continued electrification of society. Telia Cygate is delighted to be part of this journey and bring our expertise in cloud services, security and network solutions to Kraftringen,” said Fredrik Sidmar CEO at Telia Cygate. “We look forward to working closely with HPE to deliver a robust and secure IT-infrastructure that will allow Kraftringen to deploy new technologies and accelerate their digital transformation.”
