Smart Grid

Power from an array of intelligently linked sources

Smart grids are the future of energy supply. They are eco-friendly, efficient and extremely flexible. Apart from purchasing power from several centralised suppliers, consumers can also feed electricity into the public network, for example, from solar power systems or cogeneration units. Both these small power generation units owned by power consumers and large-scale plants such as offshore wind farms increase the share of volatile energy sources. This is where the Smart Grid comes in, reliably matching energy supply and demand.
