The global energy demand is growing considerably and will double by the year 2050. This challenge can only be solved through higher energy efficiency and with intelligent load management. With the Paris UN climate treaty, global warming has been limited on a political level. As a result, nuclear and coal-fired power stations are increasingly being shut down and renewable energy sources are being expanded. However, such a move makes power supply and quality of power more volatile. Intelligent storage solutions have to offer a better load management in order to prevent current fluctuations and failures. Energy-efficient solutions are therefore a necessity. In future, our active energy management will not only connect smart grid with smart industry but also M2M networks.
