Smart Grids


Smart grids are one of the technical challenges of the coming years. For the “Internet of Energy”, energy production, energy storage and energy consumption must be coordinated. The automation and communication technology superimposed on the classic energy networks is a typical area of application for telematics.



Smart Grids = Electrical infrastructure + communication + automation technology

Smart Grids = Electrical Infrastructure + Telematics
