for the rollout of intelligent measurement systems. Among other things, this act regulates the safety, storage, and use of the data generated, so that data privacy and data security are ensured. Initially, measurement systems will be replaced in households that have their own energy production systems [...] their actual requirements, and make it possible to optimally coordinate generation and consumption. Hence, smart meters are also an important building block for the increasing digitalisation of society, which continues to pervade everyday life.

dena analysis: Testing and seizing artificial intelligence opportunities for the integrated energy transition

at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, adds: “In the future, we will see more and more AI components at every stage of the value chain. To ensure successful interplay between these in the overall system, it is necessary to quickly develop knowledge that will form the basis of a holistic [...] AI. The technology also offers increasing opportunities in optimised grid operation, especially as a result of the increased dissemination of sensor data in future. For example, AI can improve local grid utilisation and detect critical conditions earlier. In contrast, the areas of maintenance and safety [...] applications for the energy sector will be tested under real-world conditions, using digital technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence or big data.
