Electricity grids

The majority of grid lines and power transformers are over 25 years old. These outdated infrastructures suffer from the rapid increase in renewable energy resources that are connected to the grid.

Key challenges

Supply driven system

The energy system was demand driven, when demand increases, more electricity is produced. Now it moves to a supply driven system, when there is a lot of electricity production demand should increase (and vice versa). This should be done whilst still continuously and perfectly matching demand and supply just as before.

Managing grid congestion

The grid was originally not designed for a doubling of electricity demand and decentralized electricity production. This causes congestion and wear on grid components.

Getting the work done

Upgrading and expanding the electricity grid requires work. A lot of work. This work needs to be carried out whilst at the same time the number of skilled technical personnel is becoming even more scarce.


Lower risk profile

Up to 30% lower operational costs (Opex)

Up to 10% longer asset lifetime (Capex)

Up to 90% more efficient workforce
