Siemens is following a strategy whereby the decarbonisation of the global energy system is driving us to a new energy paradigm.

We spoke to Siemens energy management division CTO Michael Weinhold about the future energy grid.

Siemens, the German engineering and technology giant, believes that the transition will need to be swift and deliberate. This will be necessary to facilitate a continued load growth, a changing mix of generation sources, and the need to avoid poor investments or market imbalance.

The end result will be an energy system that will be more decentralised, digitised and highly automated.
