Impressions from European Utility Week 2018
We would be pleased to welcome you again at our booth soon.
Connecting an all-electric world – Strategies for 3D grids in the IoT ageEnergy market developments, political targets, and an increasing degree of customer centricity require utilities to redefine their role and their business processes in the changing energy landscape. Digitalization has become the key enabler to create additional value in the fast-changing energy system that is driven by decentralization, decarbonization, and the proliferation of the Internet of Things. An agile mindset plus connected solutions for electrification, automation, and digitalization make it possible to benefit to the full from the opportunities that the increasingly multilayered, distributed energy infrastructure. We are looking forward to meeting you in Vienna.
Internet of Energy
The future energy system will be characterized by a high degree of distributed generation and bidirectional, constantly fluctuating energy flows that need to be managed. The Internet of Energy links power producers, power infrastructure operators, and consumers to master this difficult task.
Smart applications such as EnergyIP Analytics, EnergyIP DEOP for decentralized energy optimization, and SDM for substation device monitoring take full advantage of IoT connectivity and MindSphere, Siemens’ cloud-based, open IoT operating system. This way they provide the information required to coordinate supply and demand and to ensure grid stability and security of supply.

Substations with the future built in
Digital technology really excels when it comes to the automation, monitoring, and protection of a substation. That’s why Siemens digital substations offer considerable added value: they come with the future built in. Thanks to comprehensive IoT connectivity, the heart of the power supply also becomes the heart of energy data communication. Siemens digital substations enable greater business agility and increased operational efficiency. At the same time, they contribute to better grid availability and reliability as well as an optimized management of investments throughout the entire life cycle from planning to operation and maintenance.

Digital twins from Siemens are available for single products and for entire utility IT systems. They help utilities optimize planning and operations for increased power quality, supply security, and grid resilience at minimal cost. Using sensor data, multi-physics simulation, data analytics, and machine learning capabilities, they determine real-time performance, operating conditions, and changes throughout the product life cycle.
The vendor-neutral, standards-based Electrical Digital Twin from Siemens even creates a single source of truth for model data across an entire utility IT landscape. This puts an end to data silos that are difficult to handle and compromise system performance – an important step toward improved network model accuracy and consistency.

Intelligent, automated management and control mechanisms as well as reliable load and generation forecasts are essential for distribution grids in highly decentralized energy infrastructures. Siemens provides scalable systems to automate, display, and control all elements in grids that are increasingly challenged by the medium- and low- voltage infeed of power from intermittent renewable sources. Innovative solutions such as EnergyIP DEMS for the management of demand response and virtual power plants as well as trendsetting energy storage solutions help balance generation and load to maintain and enhance the reliability and availability of distribution grids.
