Energy Saxony Summit 2017
Energy sector and mobility in flux. Energy Saxony holds an energy summit in the Transparent Factory.
Resurgent environmental awareness on the part of consumers is leading to a new era of mobility. Growing demand for sustainable mobility concepts that conserve natural resources is driving the creation of innovative energy infrastructures across sectors. Academics and entrepreneurs will be presenting Saxony’s trailblazing potential at the ENERGY SAXONY SUMMIT on 18.09.2017 in the Transparent Factory.
Digitalisation is a catalyst for bringing together technologies and the energy and mobility sectors, thus enabling intelligent mobility solutions with new forms of drive systems. Advances in electric mobility, autonomous driving and the trend towards a sharing economy also ensure that structural change in the automotive industry provides an opportunity for boosting the expansion of renewable energy:
- As flexible items of electrical equipment, electric vehicles have an important role to play as mobile, distributed devices for the use, supplying and storage of electricity, stabilising power supplies.
- By combining the electricity, heat and mobility sectors using digital solutions, an integrated energy system can be created as the basis for an “all-electric society”.
- Key technologies to integrate the different sectors include in particular power-to-x solutions and energy storage systems that are able to balance fluctuations in supply and demand for electricity.
- The possibility of a demand-driven, controllable energy supply at the generation, distribution and consumption levels thus paves the way for a broad-based implementation of new energy policies and ultimately for a transformation process affecting society as a whole. Academic and industrial players from Saxony have developed a wide range of marketable technological solutions to shape this new energy system. This is the third year that the Energy Saxony conference has provided a platform for exchanging information and cooperating on research and commercial activities. By bringing together participants from different sectors, the energy cluster wants to contribute to realising the innovation potential of companies from Saxony, especially start-ups and small and medium-sized companies, with the support of established players on the market.
