Cross-energy management: Consumption in line with production
How industry can contribute to grid stability
The sun doesn’t always shine, and the wind doesn’t always blow. Output from renewables is volatile, so the question is whether energy consumption can be organized so that it matches supply.
Industrial consumers offer the greatest potential. They are the biggest users of energy in Germany by far. Our steel mill in Duisburg alone uses as much energy as the city of Berlin. The difference is that Berlin has three million individual consumers, the steel mill just one.
