Bernd Schüttler (Head of MDB Municipalities, Siemens AG) explains the meaning of an all-electric world.
Schüttler notes that digitalisation has become the key enabler to create additional value in the fast-changing energy system that is driven by decentralisation, decarbonisation, and the proliferation of the Internet of Things.
As energy demand increases due to more electricity consumers, it becomes vital to boost asset transparency, enhance customer service and incorporate decentralised resources with minimal impact.
Meshes are needed to balance the grid, especially in an age of unpredictability caused by EV charging or intermittent supply.
