Digitalizing electricity distribution networks to support the energy transition
Low voltage networks, a new frontier for the energy transition
Low voltage distribution networks are not monitored neither remotely operated. The planning for reinforcing and modernizing is based on the presumed wear and tear of the assets, theoretical load curves, basic tools. This implies high safety coefficients.
However, low voltage networks represent 70% of the assets and generate 50% of the operating costs.
The new challenges of electrical distribution networks
Grids in transition:
Accelerating and sustaining the energy transition in industrialized countries.
200 GW of PV generation to be added to European low voltage networks to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025
7 million electric vehicles charging stations to be installed on European low voltage networks by 2050
Grids in development:
Contributing to the achievement of UN's SDG #7 in developing countries
For the approximately 700 million people living in urban areas, where the electrical infrastructure suffers from a highly unbalanced voltage plan, as well as a high price for productive needs such as the cold chain, rotating machinery, etc.
Supporting the deployment of mini-grids for the 600 million people living in communities isolated from the grid in Africa
A unique opportunity: the smart meters roll-out
For the first time in the history of electrical networks, the massive deployment of smart meters will provide operators with access to a large-scale observation tool related to low voltage networks
Smart meters in Europe by 2030
Smart meters in Africa by 2030
