Siemens Provides Solutions for Distributed Generation and Integrating Renewables into the Grid
The increasing demand for energy will need to be managed to a greater extent by renewable sources to protect the climate and conserve ever-scarcer natural energy resources. The Smart Grid enables smart generation by tapping into the potential of wind and solar power as well as geothermal energy, clean coal, energy storage and micro-turbine technologies. Successful integration of distributed and renewable generation relies heavily on effective planning and operation. The output of renewable generation (such as wind turbines or photovoltaic (PV) units) is highly intermittent with comparably few full-load hours, and it is difficult to predict. Siemens offers solutions for smart generation that make access to energy more dependable, consistent and sustainable.
