Innovation with Energy.

Smart Energy Systems

Energy systems will become smart to meet the requirement of a stable electricity supply even when the energy sources, such as wind- and solar power, are highly volatile. This will enable a 100% electricity supply by RENEWABLE ENERGIES for most countries in the world. Furthermore smart energy systems are needed to make the overall system more EFFICIENT in order to reduce use of resources and capital. To achieve this, smart devices are necessary to interconnect renewable energies with the grid operation and SMART CONSUMERS. Smart consumers will be especially large INDUSTRIAL or COMMERCIAL facilities, ELECTRIC VEHICLES and other types of STORAGE [Not the so called smart meter for end customers]. The matching of supply and demand for energy will happen automatically and will not involve a change of usage patterns for end customers. Thereby it also constitutes the first complete application case of the Digitalization of a whole industry.

To foster the introduction of SMART ENERGY SYSTEMS we provide consulting solutions for the following areas:

  • Industrial Micro Smart Grids – Renewable, reliable and sustainable onsite generation
  • Economic optimization of industrial energy consumption
  • Energy management solutions
  • Future energy system and market design for 100% renewables
