The current and future challenges for grid operators can only be managed by accelerating digitalisation. With increased generation from renewable sources the number of producers is growing - both decentralised and in the private sector. At the same time the number of conventional power producers is decreasing due to the phasing out of nuclear energy and coal-fired generation. With the ramp-up of electromobility new access points of power consumption are emerging which could also serve as storage facilities. Driven by the increasing decentralisation of the generation landscape as well as the commingling of generation and consumption in the private environment ("prosumers") the requirements for safe and efficient grid operation are increasing. In addition there are new regulatory requirements, e.g. the amendment of the Grid Expansion Acceleration Act (NABEG), especially the so-called Redispatch 2.0. This results in the need for an increasing digitalisation of grid operations. The objectives of further digitalisation are grid stability, security of supply, cost optimisation, improved protection of operating resources, optimised maintenance and repair planning, increased reliability, process reliability, increased efficiency and avoidance of work-related accidents.
Potential areas of digital grid operation:
We know both the core processes of the grid operators and the starting points for digitalisation. We know how to "digitally think" processes end-to-end in order to identify and avoid inconsistencies and system discontinuities. A close cooperation with the suppliers of the grid control systems is an important prerequisite for this. This is where we know our way around. This is how we help you to digitize the right processes in your company and to achieve optimal effects.
