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 decentralized 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.
