The utilization and networking of data is an indispensable tool for implementing the energy transition, as the paradigms of the energy system are shifting: The provision of energy through large-scale power plants is superseded by a system of volatile power generated from wind and solar energy in which a balance between supply and demand must be constantly maintained. This complex interplay of synchronized energy production, the coupling of the electricity, heat, and transport sectors, the temporary deployment of flexible generating plants, and the storage of energy, is only possible with the aid of digitalisation. The permanent exchange of data allows forecasts to be made for production and consumption and enables the management of this complex system. At HUSUM WIND, companies and specialists introduce the technologies of tomorrow.
Digitalisation is one of the main drivers of the global transition toward renewable energy.
Digitalisation: Foundation of tomorrow’s energy system
Even today Germany is already being supplied with power from approximately 1.6 million decentralized energy facilities. Without digitalization, distribution and control would not be possible.
It is required to coordinate and align data streams, feed-in, smart metering, as well as grid operations. Efficient, swift, and automated processes are the objective.
Energy providers must become data specialists, as this is the only way they can learn about the customers’ needs and develop products and services accordingly. Digitalisation helps speed up internal processes and save costs. This complex task must be accomplished in compliance with legal requirements, and at the same time, also serve to integrate the energy industry infrastructures in Europe.
