Quantum Computing – An Emerging Technology for the Power Grid?
- Jul 21, 2021 3:46 pm GMT
The ongoing energy transition away from fossil fuels brings difficulties in its wake. If we have lots of different power systems from large-scale electricity plants, to DERs and EVs, how are utilities going to organize it all, and ensure that the power is generated and distributed to the right place at the right time?
This is going to be a serious issue.
The increasing demand for renewable energy calls for highly-optimized grid management systems. Although renewable energy resources are free source, they are hard to predict because of various factors such as solar fluctuation, weather and wind speed. Other factors include battery storage, interconnection between transmission grids in different countries, and the integration of EVs in a bi-directional system.
