New technology - New education

The German energy system is changing. More than 20 percent of electricity is meanwhile covered by renewable energy, which is mainly fed into the distribution and transmission grid, apart from needs. Thus the power supply clearly fluctuates, which has to be aligned with an ever swaying demand. – How good this challenge is met will decide whether or not the energy transition is successful.

Qualified electricity specialists needed

In order to provide high quality power supply, new information and communication technology within the grid is necessary. Smart Grids improve integration of decentralized energy production and make coordination between production and consumption possible, for which IT precision is very important. It does not just run smoothly by itself! Qualified specialist are needed to competently plan and implement the Smart Grid revolution. These specialist are, however, still scarce and that is why, along with new technology, new training is promptly needed.

Seize the opportunity now

There is not much time left: After the amendment of the Law on energy management in Germany, which will be passed at the end of 2014 or the beginning of 2015, specialists expect a rollout of Smart Meter technics in the second half of 2015.
