DC power grids are becoming trendy!

And innovenergy AG is at the forefront!

The topic of DC microgrids is nothing newfor innovenergy®.We have been developing feasible and highly efficient grid solutions based on direct current for years.The topic has finally reached the public eye.

Topic of the event

Connection restrictions, power tariffs, time-shifted electricity «demand» and «supply», decarbonisation through electrification, ESG requirements, etc. demand energy-efficient, innovative solutions in the energy transition. Get to know different, goal-oriented solutions from practice and research that circumvent the current restrictions.

Interesting speakers with exciting topics offer an innovative programme, in which innovenergy will also be taking part with a presentation.
