Grid edge technologies can be essential to the transformation of global energy facilitating the adoption of renewables, turning consumers to prosumers, and mitigating climate change. This episode examined the grid edge, its significance in driving the energy revolution, and signposted business and infrastructure owners right along in the energy value chain to valuable information about regional opportunities.
Many factors influence which solutions are appropriate for a region, or how prepared they are to deploy them at scale. Siemens is ready to share the work it has done with leading academics in creating an index to assess need and readiness for grid edge solutions, so that barriers and opportunities in different regions can be identified and the grid edge revolution can be accelerated.
Attendees will learn what grid edge means, both in terms of technology and its societal implications. They will gain practical insights into how grid edge solutions can and are being deployed providing vital intelligence for businesses and institutions.
