MUNICH & PFORZHEIM, Germany - Thursday, 01. June 2023 AETOSWire 

(BUSINESS WIRE)--The energy transition does not just change the energy generation technologies we use, but also requires the power grids to be updated. Today, instead of a dozen large-scale power plants, an enormous swarm of power plants all feed into our grid: Several thousand wind farms and over 2.6 million PV systems have been installed in Germany alone – and there is a steep upward trend. This makes our power generation weather dependent: On windless or cloudy days, the energy supply may not match the demand, leading to bottlenecks – or worse – blackouts. To keep the grid frequency at a stable 50.2 hertz, grid operators need yield forecasts. Artificial intelligence (AI) helps process this highly complex information and integrate it into the energy system.

With millions of solar installations, wallboxes and heat pumps, home storage systems and car batteries that will ... Read more »
