Kries – Focus on Power Presence
The renewable energy transition depends not only on the expansion of renewable energy generation but also on the provision of highly available distribution networks. This very important field of action is what we made our overriding task. Whether this network is called 'digitalised distribution grid', 'smart grid' or 'intelligent distribution grid', the goal remains the same.
Kries sensors and actuators from Kries have been used in many distribution grids worldwide since 1994 to continuously improve the availability and safety of distribution grids. While in the times of classical energy sources it was primarily the short-term, local failures of the distribution grid that had to be shortened or prevented, the core task of the 2020s is the development of decentralized distribution grid intelligences that ensure a stable interplay between generation and consumption.
Designing these distribution grids is what drives us.
