The transition to an all renewable and fossil free energy production means the electricity system has to adapt to new challenges. A smarter electricity grid features both innovative technical solutions and new players on the market.
The electricity system of today is built around a centralised large scale electricity production. But the energy system is facing a shift. The production from renewable sources, including small scale production, is increasing. Consumers can become more active participants on the energy market and even have the possibility to produce and sell their own electricity.
Depending on renewable energy sources also means that it becomes more difficult to predict and plan the electricity production. At the same time our energy consumption is rising. This is why new technical solutions, along with new services on the market, are necessary for a smarter use of the electricity grid, making the system more flexible and efficient.
