Our services for grid operators
The energy transition is not only fundamentally changing the way electricity is generated – the German as well as the European power grids are also undergoing a period of transformation. The transmission grid is becoming increasingly integrated across Europe, upgraded to accommodate the north-south gap in renewable generation in Germany, and a reconfiguration of bidding zones in Europe is being explored. In the distribution grid, the increasing decentralization of generation plants in recent years (in particular due to the addition of photovoltaics), the digitalization of energy grids, and sector coupling are characteristic of the German energy transition. While the role of heat pumps and electric mobility is important for the energy transition, the intelligent and efficient integration of high additional flexible loads is equally challenging.
