More than ever, power grids have become the backbone of modern power systems. As such, they represent a guarantee for the continued integration of renewables to accelerate the energy transition. Grid stability and reliability have become central topics.
BUILDING THE GRIDS OF TOMORROW
The power sector is fundamentally changing, driving development of multi-directional, intelligent and interconnected grids with greater inter-regional integration. Grid operators are facing multiple challenges, from the increasing share of renewables in energy generation, to cyber security threats and anticipated increases in power demand to meet the needs of electric vehicle charging.
