About this talk

Traditionally, energy production has been designed to strictly follow demand. Yet there is steadily growing interest in options for managing consumption in the electricity network. In areas with limited transfer capacity, "peak shaving" can avoid overloading the network leading to black outs. There are also situations in which demand exceeds what can be produced in economically and environmentally preferred plants. The growing amount of distributed green power generation will make it more difficult to balance other production since, for example, windmill production may shift rapidly and peak production times seldom match peak demand times. This session discusses the role of the energy gateway in addressing this situation by bringing intelligence to the borders of the grid.
