The energy ecosystem is increasingly characterised by decarbonisation, decentralisation, and digitalisation. These three factors are inseparable. Digital technology provides the means to manage the increasingly complex system sufficiently.
At the same time, digitalisation itself would be inconceivable without electrical power. But while the digitalisation of industrial processes, homes, and even vehicles, the so-called ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), has already made it into public awareness, the unfolding smart energy infrastructure powered by IoT technology went less noticed so far. It’s a networked system of smart energy technology and applications across generation units, storage, substations, automated distribution equipment, energy meters, buildings, and power consumers that we call the ‘Internet of Energy’ (IoE).
Siemens experts unpack how IoE in MV and LV distribution can easily be realised with zero engineering onboarding and cybersecurity inbuild. Get new, data driven insights through retrofit of an HV/MV substation – as a Power Utility Company in India optimised their processes. Another example is a Dutch DSO. They get insights into the LV grid – transparency on consumer and prosumer LV grid interactions.
