Gearing Up for Digitization in the German Energy Sector

Dec 2, 2019

Although it is common in several industries to perceive digitization as a threat, it does not hold true for the energy sector. Energy industry experts believe that digitalization could prove key in addressing several pressing challenges in Germany’s energy sector. In Germany, power consumption is poised to increase due to the electrification of transport, heating, and the rise in industrial processes. Furthermore, the share of renewable energy derived is also on the rise. Even if energy efficiency grows in Germany’s energy sector, the demand for electrical power is expected to grow. Moreover, Additionally, Germany will have to electrify more industrial processes to ensure that the country’s ambitious targets to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases are met. This could considerably increase the demand for power in the region.

Handle growing complexity

The way power is produced and distributed is largely changing. Although renewable energy is an effective way to produce energy, they cause increasing volatility and complexity. Also, there is an increase in the number of players at both ends of the power line. Using digital platforms, the energy sector can handle these complexities and promote new forms of collaboration and encourage better trading relations.

Matching demand and supply

Power consumption is commonly a linear process. However, this pattern is set to change with smart power-consuming devices. Smart power consumption devices are constantly connected and leverage the internet in order to transmit information end-to-end. The information available can make smart devices to enhance their performance by optimizing their own consumption. This helps balances the overall power load.

Managing surplus power

The ongoing decentralization of power generation in the energy sector will result in surplus power being generated. This energy must be put to immediate use or must be stored. The growing surpluses can be handled by creating heat, producing synthesized heat, storing in batteries, using smart consumption to match peaks in supply, or through smart distribution that can be enabled through digital platforms.
