The energy world of tomorrow is one with hardly any conventional fossil fuel power plants. For the grid area of 50Hertz, this represents the challenge to keep the electrical system secure and stable at all times, even without central suppliers and with the aid of state-of-the-art technology. Today, the company is already a pioneer in uninterrupted power supply, even with a lot of the energy in the system is based on renewable sources.
Complex digital technology may not transport electricity, but it does play an increasingly supporting role in exploiting all potentials within a flexible grid with ever greater loads. When establishing generation, consumption and load forecasts for the grids and operating facilities, 50Hertz will make greater use of artificial intelligence in the future.
