Digitalization and decentralization are changing the face of the energy world for good. Renewable energy has become a crucial part of our energy supply system, with global investments in renewables surpassing those made in fossil energy sources for the first time in 2015. If renewable energy is to compete against conventional sources of energy, it is not enough to simply improve how it is generated. Instead, the fields of generation, energy storage, distribution and consumption must be connected seamlessly and intelligently.
Innovative power plants for sustainable energy supply and efficient energy storage systems take home this year’s The smarter E AWARD.
BayWa r.e. renewable energy GmbH, mondas GmbH and Siemens AG are the winning contenders in the Outstanding Projects category. In the Smart Renewable Energy category, the accolade goes to Axiotherm GmbH, SolarGaps and Stäubli Electrical Connectors GmbH.
