The electrical grid is facing massive challenges in the future. There is a strong need for higher capacities and introduction of new components for consumption, storage, and generation. The total cost of energy will be increasingly driven by capacity supply peaks more than total energy delivered. All energy users need to be incentivized for lower consumption in peak periods to avoid driving up the investment costs in the grid.
In a webinar about energy efficiency, Joakim Sveli, eSmart Systems’ Business Manager, shares his thoughts on how to empower users to optimize value from local production and storage, as well as supplying flexibility to the grid. In short – how to transform energy consumers into prosumers. Watch the webinar session in the video below.
The rise of the prosumers
With the technology and flexibility in place we are on a good way to transform energy consumers to prosumers. Starting with your home, office building or process plant could be the first step towards a new era of energy efficiency.
