Energy storage and distribution
New solutions for making supply meet demand
Some of the key aspects of the energy transition relate to energy storage and distribution: How does energy reach the consumer? What is the right amount and when is the right time? What do we do with energy that is not being used at the moment? These questions are being answered with complex, automated energy supply structures and innovative solutions - the implementation of which is made more efficient with standards.
Whatever the weather
Renewable energy sources are not always available in the same amount - a lot depends on weather conditions. An intelligent infrastructure - such as the smart grid - is needed to ensure that energy is distributed in the right amounts at the right time. In this way, supply meets demand efficiently. DIN is actively contributing to the development of new energy storage and load management solutions.
DIN project groups are structuring and shaping the energy transition standardization process. A number of DIN bodies are dealing with "intelligent" solutions such as the smart grid, the smart home and the smart city. Energy supply plays a central role in these areas. The easier it is to implement these smart solutions, the greater the benefit for the consumer. Standards help - and they also help bring German technology to the global market.
Because they are affected by weather conditions, wind and solar energy systems have to deal with unknown factors. This is why the storage of renewable energy is an important topic at DIN. A focus is being placed on the further development of technologies such as thermal storage and mechanical storage which reliably meet the user's needs.
