Shaping a smart energy world at the grid edge – exploring opportunities for municipalities and DSOs
In this paper, we present 5 hands-on use cases which illustrate how current technologies help to integrate new players and assets to improve the core business of municipalities and DSOs and allow them to tap into innovative business models.
Energy intelligence for a more adaptable, sustainable power gridSmart grids use digital technologies and IoT solutions to intelligently respond and adapt to changes in the grid. Infusing energy intelligence is the key to leverage the data in the grid that allows to make grid operation reliable, cost-efficient, flexible, safe and therefore sustainable.
Staying ahead of change
Our lives and the way we do business depends on sustainable energy supply. Yet, decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization lead to a radical transformation of the energy landscape. Increasing integration of power from renewable sources, often decentral with multidirectional energy flows, poses challenges to power grids. Despite all these changes, participants of the energy system still need to maintain grid stability, ensure power quality, enable sector coupling, deal with aging assets, and reduce costs.
Bringing energy intelligence to the grid not only helps to master these challenges, but also generates new opportunities to increase asset and cybersecurity, efficiently balance generation and demand, and create new revenue streams. This includes the grid edge, from where the transition towards a decentralized, distributed, and decarbonized grid starts.
The Siemens approach – benefit together
The transformation of energy systems creates new opportunities that can be best used together. Grid operations must be seen in the context of increasing complexity through decentralization, highly volatile power generation, and multi-directional power flows. We make energy smarter by integrating energy intelligence across the energy supply chain shaping energy supplies that are cost-efficient, safe, reliable, and flexible. Our holistic approach helps you to stay competitive in a changing world. No matter what’s your role in the energy system.
