The development of technologies and regulatory boundary conditions as well as the changes in customer behaviour are main drivers for a sustainable transformation of the energy system. It is still unclear how the
Changes in power generation
Increasing additions in renewable capacity, decrease in generation and increase in flexibility for conventional power plants.
"Decarbonization" of heating and transport
Operation of electrical components which are supplied by increasingly CO2 free generated electricity (e-vehicles, heat pumps)
Decoupling of generation and consumption
The consumption of electricity will be synchronized with generation to some extent via storage and demand side management.
An integrated infrastructure for information and communication will be the backbone of such a distributed energy system and links together the various components in residential areas, offices and industry.
Using existing technology for new business models, for example Electrolyzer for Power to Gas.
Develop and deliver new technologies for new business – for example E-Mobility Vehicle to Grid.
Keep and extend business options with new technologies – for example new floating foundations for Offshore Wind.
Maximize existing business performance – for example advanced condition monitoring combined-cycle gas turbines (CCGT).
