WE CAPTURE ENERGY IN REAL TIME, CREATING THE EFFICIENT SMART GRID OF THE FUTURE.
WHAT IS A SMART GRID AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The ways in which we perceive and use electricity are changing. Large-scale energy production is gradually moving away from a centralised model to an ever more decentralised one. Apart from the increasing environmental awareness of society, this is also supported by developments in electronics and communications, the ever-growing penetration of renewable energy sources, the onset of electromobility and the ability to manage the consumption of many household appliances.
This transformation is leading to more and more households and buildings being equipped with modernised energy consumption systems and some have even moved over to their own energy production. At the forefront of this energy innovation are smarter grid solutions. But how does this technology work and what can it offer us?
WHAT ARE SMART GRIDS?
The ways in which we perceive and use electricity are changing. This was confirmed by the World Energy Congress in 2019, which officially confirmed the trend that new, environmentally friendly and energy efficient technologies already dominate conventional sources, which are now becoming obsolete. This transformation is leading to more and more households and buildings being equipped with modernised energy consumption systems, while a growing number already include their own energy production.
At the forefront of this energy innovation stands a set of solutions, which are known as smart grids. But what exactly is this and what can it offer us? The best way to explain a smart grid is to think of it as a modified power grid. In order to optimise the distribution and consumption of energy, it uses various energy measures such as smart appliances, smart meters and renewable energy sources. This allows it to operate and adapt to energy requirements in a manner that is impossible for a conventional grid.
The beauty of smart grids lies in the fact that they use modern technology to ensure better energy distribution. They can optimise energy consumption, increase the share of renewable components and allow consumers better control of their own energy consumption. Thanks to this, companies, households and even whole neighbourhoods can manage their energy much more efficiently.
HOW DO THEY WORK AND WHY ARE THEY USEFUL?
Smart grids use a wide range of technologies to find the most efficient method of production, transmission, maintenance and utilisation of energy. This is made possible by special monitoring systems. With these, and with predictions and optimisation procedures, users can see how much electricity costs, how much they use when and where, and how much can be moved to a cheaper tariff.
The potential advantages and use of smart grids are practically unlimited. First and foremost, they are more environmentally friendly and the system is easier to modify and control. Thanks to careful monitoring and correct installation, they can, for example, increase the energy efficiency of whole powered regions. As you’ve probably guessed, this method of energy use is more cost-effective, a fact that is certain to delight the pockets of many individuals and companies, to such an extent that the smart grid can also, and often above all, be optimised for industrial customers such as factories and large production companies.
