Unlock the potential of digitalization

It’s time to set the course for the future in the increasingly decarbonized and distributed energy landscape. Digitalization provides the key to success in this complex environment that is characterized by a large number of market players as well as multilayered energy, information, and finance streams. It enables predictive planning, enhanced network operation, and additional value creation beyond the provision of grid capacity.   During this year’s CIGRE session, Siemens experts explained how to seize the digital opportunity and take the lead in the transition to a safer and even more efficient energy system.    Thank you for visiting us!

Whitepaper "Digitalization of energy systems"

The Whitepaper “Digitalization of energy systems” by Bloomberg New Energy Finance is focusing on how digitalization is shaping the energy industry. The paper examines the current impact of digital assets in the power infrastructure and gives an outlook on future drivers and opportunities in this business field.

Make efficient use of new opportunities

Predictive planning

Comprehensive consulting, planning, and simulation form the basis for future-proof infrastructures that promise lasting economic success. Innovative financing approaches from Siemens help minimize the impact of capital investment on your equity and liquidity.

Digitally enhanced operation

Siemens’ future-oriented portfolio combines traditional power transmission technology and digitalization skills. It provides you with lasting solutions for efficient and reliable power transmission across long distances, for the economical incorporation of renewable energy sources and grid stabilization, and for the development of resilient transmission infrastructures that will stand up to current and future risks.

Additional value creation

Added value is increasingly generated through interaction with other market players. Typical examples are energy trading, demand response, and customer engagement. If you want to leverage these potentials, you can build on data communication and intelligent data analytics using applications powered by MindSphere.

Digital substations take grid operation to the next level

Siemens has developed trendsetting, integrated solutions that help you unlock the potential of digitalization by making use of the ongoing IT/OT convergence as well as the wealth of data that have become available at all points of the grid.

A prime example is the unique 360° portfolio for digital substations that ensures that your digital substations come with the future built in – enabling greater business agility and increased operational efficiency while contributing to better grid availability and reliability as well as an optimized management of investments. 

See how digitalization helps you understand, maintain, and optimize your grid and create added value beyond the provision of transmission capacity.
