At the Climate Conference 2015 in Paris, the world community agreed to create a greenhouse gas-neutral world economy between 2050 and 2100. As the EU's most populated and economically strongest member state, Germany plays an important role in the EU's climate policy. Accordingly, both the EU and Germany have set ambitious climate protection goals by 2050 (with intermediate targets for 2020 and 2030):
- Annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are expected to decrease by 80-95% by 2050 compared to 1990 levels
- Increase the share of renewable energies in gross energy consumption by 60% by 2050
- Reduction of primary or final energy consumption by -50% compared to 2008
These settings have a substantial impact for distribution system operators and municipalities as more renewable energy production has to be connected to the grid more quickly than before. Furthermore, it means that electricity as a basis for mobility must have a higher availability and other energy sources (eg hydrogen) or energy concepts (eg. "sector coupling" or "Power2Heat") will find more use. The complexity for local energy providers is increasing.
Solutions are needed to connect networks smartly, digitally. With digital copies of physical objects or processes, so called Digital Twins, it is possible to analyse, plan and decide more intelligently, quickly and cost-effectively than before. Only through such digital solutions the climate protection goals will be achievable in the given time. This is where DigiKoo plays a major role: we help utilities and municipalities to master the challenges ahead. With our digital platform, we combine network data with measurement data and commercial data to provide intelligent linking and visualization. For example, we deal with data quality, network calculation in all divisions and area-related identification.
