Efficient grid access is the key to the economic feasibility of renewable energy. Only when the cost of renewable energy will be clearly reduced, will a greener energy system be able to develop and succeed. And the contribution that the ever more efficient connection of renewables to the grid can make in economic terms is enormous.
Generating power from renewable sources, such as wind and the sun, is one thing. It is a completely different thing, however, to feed the generated power into the grid efficiently. Siemens has developed new solutions that increase the reliability and economic efficiency of onshore and offshore wind as well as large photovoltaic plants by providing new and compact technical approaches in AC and DC grid connection, as for example the new Offshore Transformer Module (OTM) for AC transmission, and reliable, economical one-stop solutions to supply power from an environment-friendly grid infrastructure to industrial processes.
Siemens conducts studies that help determine the most technically efficient and economically feasible way of connecting an offshore wind farm to the grid, provides the suitable technical solutions and also offers reliable services that ensure maximum flexibility and economic efficiency.
High-voltage substations are the important node at which the power is fed into the grid. Siemens provides suitable turnkey solutions comprising all technical, financial, and ecological aspects of the station’s entire life cycle, customized to meet the most challenging demands.
Siemens provides ways of reliably and economically supplying large-scale consumers with clean power from the grid, this way boosting energy efficiency and further reducing the need for onsite power generation from fossil fuels.
