지속 가능한 에너지 시스템의 운영 능력에너지 효율성을 개선하기 위한 노력은 늘 산업의 핵심 동력이었습니다. 또한 생산된 전력뿐 아니라 화석 자원과 재생 자원의 더 나은 활용에 기여하는 혁신적인 기술을 제공하는 데 있어 엄청난 발전이 있었습니다. 하지만 이것으로는 여전히 미래의 목표를 달성하는 데 부족합니다. 미래의 에너지 시스템은 현재보다 훨씬 적은 온실 가스를 배출해야 합니다. 이를 위해, 재생 에너지자원, 변동적 공급량 및 소규모 발전소에서의 분산된 생산에 대한 비율을 훨씬 더 높여야 합니다. 또한, 여러 시장 참여자와 기술이 한데 힘을 모아 새로운 비즈니스 모델로 복잡한 전력 공급 시스템을 형성해야 합니다. 따라서 미래의 디지털화에서의 핵심은 에너지 전환 사슬을 따라 하드웨어의 각 부분을 개선하는 것 외에도 안정적이고 지속 가능한 에너지 시스템 및 해당 요소를 운영하는 것이 될 것입니다.
"에너지 시스템을 다루는 것이 결코 쉬운 적이 없었습니다. 하지만 디지털화로 인한 새로운 가능성 덕분에 지속 가능한 에너지 시스템 관리에 대한 요구가 훨씬 커졌으며 이는 앞으로도 계속될 것입니다. 이와 동시에 더 많은 시장 참여자가 더 높은 수익성으로 참여할 수 있는 훨씬 많은 기회가 창출될 것입니다."
DTU(Technical University of Denmark)의 전력 및 에너지 센터(Center for Electric Power and Energy) 센터장인 Jacob Ostergaard 교수가 IT 개발의 주요 동향과 IT 개발이 시장 참여자들에게 미치는 영향을 설명합니다.
스마트 디지털 기술이 제공하는 새로운 가능성
점점 많은 시장 참여자들이 어느 때보다 훨씬 많은 데이터를 생산하고 있습니다. 예를 들어, 대규모 가스 터빈에서만 수백 개의 센서가 매초마다 온도, 압력, 유동 경로 및 가스 성분을 측정하고 있습니다. 또한 미래 에너지 시스템의 안정적인 운영을 위해서는 모든 참여자(생산자, 프로슈머 및 소비자)가 지능적으로 유대해야 합니다. 디지털화의 기회를 잡는 것 외에 다른 방법이 없다는 점을 고려하면 이러한 데이터가 지능적으로 평가되고 활용되도록 하기 위해 첨단 분석 방법이 필요합니다.
The cleanest energy is the energy that isn’t needed. There is a huge potential for energy conservation, especially in buildings, industry and transportation. Saving energy and using energy more efficiently are the two main factors involved in creating a sustainable energy supply for the future. This can be achieved by controlling energy consumption and integrating energy-saving products and solutions in buildings, industry and transportation.
Electric engines account for nearly two-thirds of the electric energy used in industry, for example for conveyor technology or pumps. With optimized solutions, the energy consumption of industrial drives can be lowered by up to 30 percent. Worldwide, about 40 percent of energy is consumed by buildings. Here too a lot can be achieved: through heat insulation and pumps, smart building technology, or efficient lighting.

Today’s energy mix leads to fast-changing imbalances between generation and load, impacting grid stability and power quality. Battery storage can act as an energy consumer as well as producer. This combination helps to improve grid stability and enable greater integration of renewable energy sources. Thus the grid can utilize more available energy.
Alternative you can feed surplus power into an electrolyzer, which uses electricity to decompose water into hydrogen, and oxygen and generates heat. The obtained hydrogen can be stored and used to fuel a gas turbine and in several industrial processes.Since the supply of power from wind is

systems will be a necessity.
Wind, photovoltaik, small hydropower plants and biomass greatly contribute to meeting power demand and environmental awareness. Especially offshore wind power plants with an installed generating capacity in the triple-digit megawatt range are already in operation and deliver great amounts of electricity with a high degree of continuity. But a growing number of onshore wind farms are being sited in regions with moderate to low wind speeds. Therefore we offer a new generation of wind turbines, which extract the maximum energy yield from low to moderate wind velocities.
Also solar energy has a great potential and is an inexhaustible energy source. As a long-term, reliable source of energy, the sun provides a huge annual amount of energy. Thanks to the technological advance of recent years and the development of the photovoltaics market, PV systems are now ready for large-scale production of electricity. And if we would like to turn water into energy small hydropower plants have proven to be a sustainable source of energy as well.

If clouds block the sun or the wind dies, power fluctuations must be balanced out quickly. Gas-fired power plants that can be started up quickly are ideal for this. Combined with a steam turbine, the world´s most efficient combined heat and power plant (CHP) from Siemens can convert approx. 61,5 percent of the energy from natural gas into electricity. Thanks to its CHP concept the overall fuel efficiency increases to 85 percent.

When cities and buildings look for technologies to reduce their energy consumption, smart financing solutions are often needed to overcome the shortage of funds. When engineering and financing solutions come together, buildings can unlock huge energy saving potential – in consumption and in cost. A good example of this is Siemens' energy performance contracting for building technologies – a combination of consulting, modernization services and customized financing. With this, customers do not need to make any initial investment; they simply use the energy cost savings to pay the installments.
Worldwide, Siemens has modernized more than 5,200 buildings this way, with more than €1 billion in savings and more than ten millions tons of CO2 reductions.

In the future, not only large plants but also millions of small and medium-sized power producers will feed electricity into the grid. More and more former consumers of energy are becoming producers as well. This fact, and the fluctuating feed-ins of renewable energy, make intelligent power grids necessary for power distribution. With “Smart Grids” like these, Siemens helps to achieve the right balance between electricity production and demand - throughout the world, and here in Germany.

Natural gas accounts for around 25% of the global energy demand. The proven reserves climb new highs, based on deep sea exploration and unconventional resources. As the cleanest fossil energy resource natural gas will continue to increase its share of the global energy mix, growing at 1.8% per year until 2035. Gas trade is primarily carried out as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and by pipelines. Mission critical technology from Siemens makes the total process from production of gas via transportation to electrical power more safe and efficient.

Should primarily be used where they occur in abundance: solar energy in sun-drenched areas and wind energy on the high seas. Therefore, long-distance networks must be further expanded, beyond national boundaries, using classic overhead lines, cables or gas-insulated lines. Besides classical high-voltage AC connections, high-efficiency power superhighways with high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) technology can be used for very long distances.
For example, in a HVDC Technology project in China, Siemens has shown that around 95 percent of the electricity makes it to the consumers, even over a distance of 1,400 kilometers and at a transmission capacity of 5,000 megawatts.
The requirements on power distribution and therefore on medium- and low-voltage grids are increasing continuously. Changing directions of power flow, load and voltage fluctuations, which are caused especially by the strongly growing number of power supplies from volatile power sources, e.g. photovoltaic/biogas plants and wind farms, make the distribution grids of today go to their capacity limits. The solution is an active distribution grid with intelligent transformer substations as key components. These contribute to an active load management in the distribution grid and enable an automatic and fast fault clearance in case of disturbances.

Grid Control & Applications
Information technology is what we need to get the meter data and the consumption data into the system so that we can measure consumption and draw the necessary conclusions. Automation technology makes the meter data available for outage management and outage measurement in the grids. So this is where operations technology and information technology become one. The collected data is stored and analyzed, in the interests of stable and efficient power supply.
The enabling factor for all of Siemens’ cross-sectoral solutions is a smart grid that allows an intelligent energy management.

Oil consumption is expected to grow and crude oil remains the dominant primary energy source for the next 20 years. Especially transport fuel is dominated by oil, its low relevance in electrical power generation will further decrease. Oil reserves are enough not at least thanks to exploration and production in deep sea regions and opening production from unconventional resources like oil sands. Furthermore, enhanced oil recovery technologies for mature fields enable to get more out of a field. Siemens innovative technology makes production, transportation and processing more efficient and environmentally compatible.
