The shift to decentralized energy production—made possible by intermittent renewables like solar and wind power—has led to dramatic changes in the needs of power prosumers.
At the same time, industries are forging new synergies, as energy consumption and production are becoming increasingly bi-directional, involving multiple partners. These radical changes mean that you have to constantly readjust to power fluctuations and make sure the supply is sufficient, reliable and meets quality standards.
As a result, you need to be highly flexible when optimizing the operations of your network systems. You need to balance these considerations in a dynamic environment, while considering variations in energy demands over very short periods, the requirements for each piece of generating equipment, limited storage needs in some regions, and other factors.
