Innovation dynamic remains strong in Germany’s power grids
Despite the significant changes in Germany’s energy system, the reliability of the power grid shows that there is a strong innovation dynamic in system services, writes the German Energy Agency (dena) in a report, citing redispatch measures as an example. A “hidden technological revolution” in the power grid, driven by the energy transition, is “a big opportunity for Germany as a research and development location,” said dena head Andreas Kuhlmann in a press release. According to the agency, numerous research and pilot projects continue to employ new technologies and processes.
