Global electricity consumption from street lighting could be slashed with smart cameras and sensors turned on, reducing emissions and advancing the energy transition, says the International Energy Agency.
Decentralised generation will serve shifting electricity requirements, but also brings unique challenges. How can microgrids help deliver reliable, sustainable solutions? And what lessons are being drawn from Siemens own microgrid, powering its campus in Vienna?
For communities looking to achieve energy resilience and engage in the energy transition, an intelligently managed microgrid system can optimise flexibility, while cutting costs and carbon emissions.
Data shows the EU's pipeline of solar and wind is 1.2 times greater than existing capacity.
The transition to electric vehicles requires significant expansion of infrastructure and network capacity to accommodate charging. How will distribution systems keep up with demand, while being future-proofed against evolving mobility requirements?
All new cars on the European market must be zero-emission vehicles from 2035, says the European Commission in its ‘Fit for 55’ package, but questions over affordability and infrastructure are proving difficult to answer.
Climate campaigners say the move will penalise society’s most vulnerable, while the chair of the European Parliament’s environment committee calls it “politically suicidal”.
