50% of all energy costs are caused by large scale grids.

Microgrids based on standardized systems and integrated design will develop stronger in city areas and will decrease overall energy transport costs. Big data e-solutions for every application will make energy smart.

Smart Energy Generation:

  • Big data solutions will make energy consumption precisely predictable in households and factories.

Smart Supply:

  • Internet of things will completely change energy market. From demand defines supply to supply defines demand.

Smart Consumption:

  • Trading and smart usage of electricity will be on an adhoc basis automated for everyone, private and industry.

Smart Distribution:

  • To trade energy we will need an optimized and efficient energy storage infrastructure with flexible storage capacity on a short and long term basis. City disctricts will form urban microgrids.
  • Electrical vehicles will form a massive storage cloud with immediately available energy.

The grid of tomorrow needs more storage cpacity, flexibility and more dynamic reaction time:

  • Larger scale renewable energy production creates overcapacities
  • Storage required to bridge renewable energy fluctuations from seconds to month
  • Mobility & Transportation has to replace fossil fuels
  • Smart grids require flexible and durable storage solutions

Vision: Electric vehicle storage cloud

To utilize this storage potential, batteries are required to live through a significantly higher number of charging & discharging cycles.

Example:

In 2020 2.5 Million private cars are forecasted for Shanghai. If each car would have a 40KWh Battery, Shanghai cars would provide a 100 Gigawatt storage cloud.

To utilize this storage potential, batteries are required to live through a significantly higher number of charging & discharging cycles.
