What is Smart Grid?

Smart-Grid-solutions from Siemens blaze the trail to the future of the energy business

Smart-Grid-solutions from Siemens blaze the trail to the future of the energy business. Innovative technologies and services in the fields of IT, data communication, energy automation, and rail electrification pave the way for efficient grids, intelligent power distribution, intelligent consumption as well as electromobility and smart buildings.

Siemens Smart Grid provides
a complete end-to-end spectrum of technologies, products, services and solutions, designed for all partners in the energy industry. Siemens works closely with energy producers, grid operators, industrial companies, multiutilities, cities and rail operators to help them meet the challenges of the new era.
Siemens Smart Grid incorporates
the industry’s most innovative IT solutions to optimize information and communication. The more intelligent these systems are, the more useful and valuable the information generated from field data becomes. Incorporating digital sensing and automated analytics across the entire energy system will revolutionize the industry.
Siemens Smart Grid transforms
cities into prosumers and private households into energy dealers in a new, bidirectional energy system – moving towards a more efficient, reliable, resilient and responsive grid. Rail operators become energy suppliers as excess (brake) energy is fed back into the grid. The megacities of the future bear a huge potential to become efficiency leaders in generating and storing electricity.

Siemens Smart Grid enables
a paradigm shift away from a centralized, reactive and producer-controlled network. The future of efficient power generation and delivery will come from decentralized, interactive and demand-controlled systems. Fundamental modernization of current installations is necessary to master growing demands and to operate safely in the increasingly complex environment of the future.
