Innovative energy services, which meet the needs of energy consumers and promote the development of energy efficiency markets, can make a major contribution to achieving demand side energy efficiency targets.
Taking electricity use by way of example: the number and areas of use of electrically powered appliances and systems is growing in all consumption sectors. Electricity, a high quality product, is and remains the basis for ever more services, without which our everyday life is inconceivable.The central challenge is to meet electricity demand economically, reliably and with the least impact on climate.
At the same time, statutory minimum energy efficiency standards and more market transparency in terms of energy usage in its many and varied applications create the essential foundations for making full use of the existing potential energy efficiencies on the demand side.
Intelligent energy systems require innovative energy services
dena is working with cooperation partners from politics, business, and associations on strategies and solutions for modern energy services, as well as innovative products for intelligent energy systems, in order to meet the challenges of a sustainable and reliable energy supply. For the growth market of private households, these are primarily standardised products which make it possible to become a Smart Home and therefore clear the way for the necessary conversion of the supply infrastructure into an intelligent grid, into a Smart Grid.
