Energy Transition Project
Energy Transition Project

The energy transition is a project of the century that can only be successful if various components of the energy system are adapted and interact with each other.

 

A central component of this is the smart grid. The term describes an electricity system that is optimized on the basis of data and links automated decisions with suggestions for changing behavior. Smart meters are a key component of the smart grid. These can measure household energy consumption in real time and provide valuable feedback to consumers.
