LiveEO Launches Grid-Wide Satellite-Based Vegetation Monitoring for E.DIS

LiveEO Launches Grid-Wide Satellite-Based Vegetation Monitoring for Network Operator E.DIS

Following the completion of a successful pilot project, Earth Observation company LiveEO and German grid operator E.DIS announce the rollout of LiveEO’s satellite-based vegetation monitoring solution to the entire medium-voltage network of the E.on subsidiary.

LiveEO’s software uses artificial intelligence to analyze satellite images of the entire network and automatically detect the location of trees near power lines. These insights enable E.DIS’ vegetation managers to reliably and efficiently minimize risks from trees coming into contact with power lines.


The two companies had previously completed a pilot project covering 6000 km of power lines. The project reduced vegetation management costs by 30% in identification, planning, execution, and reporting, while improving system reliability by 15%. Consequently, E.DIS is now taking the next step and rolled out the vegetation management solution across its entire network.

E.DIS is a traditionally innovation-friendly company. For some time, it has been exploring new technologies such as augmented reality and IoT, as well as drones for inspecting power lines – so using rapidly developing satellite technology is only natural.

Project manager and innovation manager, Sven Mögling, said:

“The possibility to check our network with satellite images and AI as well as the strong customer focus of LiveEO have excited us from the beginning. Innovative partners like LiveEO and new technologies are an important pillar for us as a grid operator to make our network even more efficient and reliable.”

For LiveEO, the collaboration with E.Dis, one of Germany’s largest grid operators, is an important milestone.

LiveEO's co-founder and CEO, Daniel Seidel, commented on the rollout:

“To achieve our goal of monitoring every major infrastructure network by 2025, we need to develop a deep understanding of our customers' industry-specific challenges. The outstandingly constructive collaboration with E.DIS has greatly helped us to tailor our service even better to the needs of network operators. We look forward to further cooperation!”
