Siemens Takes a Look into the Future of Electrical Power

by Ulrich Kreutzer
Summary: 

The way power is generated and distributed is set to change fundamentally all over the world. However, even experts don’t know exactly how distributed power systems will be structured in the future. Researchers at Siemens and RWTH Aachen University are therefore simulating possible future energy systems on the basis of millions of diverse data sets. In this manner, they are creating digital “twins” of future energy-system structures in a project that is unlike any other in the world.
