Energy transfer and distribution
Global energy consumption will grow
The entire power supply is based on a large network of transmission lines, substations and power plants that supply our households and businesses with electrical energy. This is one of the great technical achievements of the 20th century.
But the current distribution network is inefficient in many ways and conceptually has changed little since the days of Thomas Edison. Up to ten percent of the electricity generated is lost in transmission alone. Many power plants are kept in continuous operation, but are only a reserve, often the ones that cause the greatest pollution and only generate a very small proportion of the energy hours required per year. This means an unnecessary environmental impact of such power plants and at the same time the creation of additional costs for consumers.
An "intelligent" power grid enables households and businesses to use, produce and sell energy in a much more technologically advanced way.
The trend shows that investments in plant monitoring are necessary for new and existing transformers and on-load tap-changers.
Did you know that
65% of global warming is caused solely by energy production and distribution.
Up to 10% of the energy generated during transmission is lost.
