- Mar 16, 2021 8:57 am GMT
Episode 46: After several black outs in the past months, the irresistible growing trend towards electrification and the relentless rise of renewables, the grid has become the indispensable nervous system of the energy transition. How can the grid manage more intermittent and decentralized sources while ensuring more resiliency in dire and more recurrent weather extremes.
With Gerhard Salge, CTO Hitachi ABB Power Grids, we encover a modernised XXIst Century super-grid, strengthened through interconnectors and AI, but also integrating new usages such as emobility, heating, and industrial uses like steel and mining. This is a journey where digisation, virtual inertia, mini-hubs are the new tool to build, manage and strengthen the XXist century supergrid. Massive investments and new mindsets will be key to a cleaner and more resilient electrical world.
