Energy management for complex systems
The key to climate-friendly manufacturing and a stable grid.
Factory production lines, office buildings, local grids – they all need a dependable energy management solution, optimized to suit their purposes.
The march toward a greener energy mix is well underway, but renewables are volatile. Operators of complex systems have to balance the scales, tapping other sources to offset lulls in wind and solar availability and finding uses for excess power produced on windy days. These operators require tools to plan, forecast, and coordinate power consumption and production.
They are also keen to seize the opportunities offered by sector coupling and generate new solutions based on current trends such as the increasing adoption of electric vehicles.
Distribution network operators, in turn, have to adapt to a world where power no longer flows from one central source. And they have to cope with mounting instability as more and more decentralized plants join the grid.
IoT use cases for energy management
The Bosch.IO Energy team helps manufacturers optimize the power supply for their production lines. These solutions serve to control decentralized plants and support operators’ efforts to transition to a smart distribution grid.
