As the energy landscape and our power systems are becoming increasingly complex, traditional, siloed grid planning practices are no longer suited to make well-founded investment decisions. Utilities need to acquire a holistic view of the energy system and on potential energy carrier options and alternatives. This empowers them to evaluate different planning scenarios against their efficiency and sustainability goals. Join our webinar to learn how Siemens’ end-to-end GT&D planning approach can help you derive a solid, targeted development plan towards a low-carbon energy future.


Key topics:

  • Meeting the uncertainty of the energy transition with adaptive investment planning
  • End-to-end GT&D planning: Determining the “global” optimum for both generation and grid infrastructure
  • Designing an energy efficiency strategy and roadmap to achieve sustainability targets
