The involved players like municipalities, local communities or metropolitan cities are adapting their strategies, but also new partners such as private businesses rethink their approaches. Globally operating companies are developing initiatives which focus on reducing the energy consumption, driving down energy costs and integrating wind & solar power in the overall mix. Best example: Siemens.
The company has its goal on turning its operations carbon neutral by 2030, also to set a clear signal even before the adoption of the Paris Agreement. One key measure to achieve this ambitious goal is to invest in Distributed Energy Systems (DES) and to implement these at their own facilities and office complexes all around the world. The concept of a DES encompassing and managing a diverse array of power generation, storage, energy monitoring, and control solutions in a single semi-independent energy system is a promising solution for finding answers to new challenges companies are confronted with all over the world.
