Helping to shape the energy transition

Climate change and the rapid growth in population are the greatest challenges facing society. Prosperity has to be assured for a growing number of people – yet with ever lower CO2 emissions. As a step toward achieving this, the energy supply needs to be converted from fossil fuels to wind and solar power very quickly. Due to changing load conditions, the energy transition will require a comprehensive redesign of the grid infrastructure – both in the transmission and in the distribution grids. New ideas and pioneering technologies are the key to ensuring that the adaptation of existing grids to changed requirements is technologically successful and remains affordable. As the specialist for high voltage test technologies, we are continually developing our solution portfolio in dialog with grid operators and manufacturers of electrical equipment throughout the world.
