Future education.
Make the energy transition your personal achievement

Future power distribution.

Rotating discs in electricity meters and distributor employees reading them: no more! The information technology merges with the energy sector and the future belongs to intelligent power distribution systems (“Smart Grids“). Digital measuring systems (“Smart Meters“) record consumption figures in real-time and send them directly to the distributor. This is no futuristic vision! In order for the energy transition to succeed and to secure the power supply, modernizing the power distribution system is absolutely necessary. Fortunately, modernization has already started. By 2020, about 40 million Smart Meters should be installed in Germany.


What is the importance of the Smart Grid Project for me?
Die Smart Grid Academy bietet ein komplettes Lernprogramm

Intelligent power distribution links the traditional electrician trade with the current distribution and information technology. Qualified specialists in both work fields were deployed for advice, planning and formation.

A new era is about to begin: Starting as early as 2015, we will commence to make the Smart Meter technology standard, so it will replace about 40 million electricity meters by 2020.

You can lay the foundation for your future success right now.
