    Operators of industrial power grids face two major challenges: They need to optimize their average production costs –including reducing CO2 emissions – and at the same time ensure a secure and reliable power supply for production. The use of renewables to supply industrial facilities reduces both CO2 emissions and the requirement for imported electricity. This lowers operating costs, especially since surplus electricity can be sold. If storage systems are used, it allows operations to take the form of an electrical island, ensuring smooth production, regardless of a public power supply that in many locations may be insufficient.

    Fluctuations in electricity generation in a microgrid demand intelligent control mechanisms, reliable forecasts, and – especially in island mode – a balance between available power and power consumed. To meet these needs, Siemens supplies scalable Microgrid Management Systems.
