Measurement as the foundation for the transformation of energy generation, storage, distribution and consumption.
v. Siegfried Gross, Vice President and General Manager Energy Solutions
The energy generation industry is in a disruptive transformation from central energy generation concepts based on traditional sources like fossile or nuclear technologies towards a highly distributed system with new energy sources like wind, solar technologies.
On the consumption side the massive expected growth of electrical mobility as well as the transition to smart consumption fuelsthe transformation as well. The distributed nature of batteries in cars as an example match the nature of new energy generation well.
These trends require new grid qualification, structure and management as well.
All thee innovations are supported by new power semiconductor technologies which allow drastic reduction in size and increase the efficiency of building blocks.
Now – every innovation in technology needs measurement as a basic principle to gain insight and improvement – in order to innovate.
The talks describe the trends in a quantified manner deeper and connect the dots to measurement principles.
