Decarbonization goes hand in hand with increasing electrification of transport and heating sectors as well as industry which leads to a growing demand for renewable electricity. E-mobility and heat pumps bring additional challenges for system integration while also offering additional flexibility potential. The energy transition will only succeed if we harness this potential through the efficient integration of millions of decentralized feeders and millions of flexible consumers and storage units into the system. This cannot be achieved without a rapid expansion of the transmission and distribution grids and without an extensive digitalization of the distribution grids with intelligent control of grid connected plants. Cybersecurity and data protection "by design" are indispensable building blocks for this development to happen.
The work behind the transformation towards a "climate-neutral grid" is being done by expert groups in VDE FNN which are working closely together and weighing in their different perspectives and interests to develop well balanced and forward-looking technical solutions.
VDE FNN has drawn up a vision of the energy system 2030 and provided a concrete roadmap for implementation. This gives concrete details on the main topics of the work from VDE FNN and thus addresses future challenges at an early stage.
