Even in challenging times, future crises must be addressed:
How can the challenges for the energy sector and the energy-intensive industry resulting from the coal phase-out be mastered?
Scientists at the new Fraunhofer Center for Digital Energy in Aachen are researching answers to these questions. This week the starting signal was given for the construction of the center (construction work is expected to start in 2022 on the Melaten campus). Under the leadership of Fraunhofer FIT, our chairs Automation of Complex Power Systems (Prof. Monti) and Active Energy Distribution Networks (provisionally Prof. Moser) are also involved.
According to Prof. Wehrspohn, Fraunhofer Executive Board member responsible for technology marketing and business models, this launch will make an important contribution to the innovation-oriented structural change in the Rhenish region. The aim is to lay the foundations for technically reliable, hacker-proof and economically attractive digitalized energy infrastructures in the Rhenish mining area and to put them into operation.
