Schneider Electric, a French multinational company that specializes in digital transformation and energy management and automation, is calling on energy decision makers to prioritize rapid deployment of smart grids to accelerate the energy transition.
These so-called “grids of the future” are powered by data and integrated network models, offering increased sustainability, resilience, efficiency and flexibility. According to Schneider Electric, grid modernization can support the growth of distributed energy resources (DERs), microgrids and energy communities.
Schneider Electric’s experts attending Enlit Europe 2023 in Paris argue the outdated grid infrastructure is holding back the energy transition, and they propose increased network automation on smart grids run by smart electric utility companies can shape the future of a low-carbon energy sector.
“The real challenge of the energy transition is increasing network output and efficiency, doing that in t
