TOWARDS A SMART ENERGY FUTURE

renewables and increased energy efficiency, supported by smart energy management. Over the past years the AIT Ener- gy Department has established itself as a key player in develo- ping technologies for this smart energy future. “The milesto- nes on our path to this goal are active distribution networks which can integrate renewables into the power grid both safe- ly and efficiently, and the transformation of cities into smart cities,” says Brigitte Bach, Head of Energy Department, outli- ning the necessary steps.

urope’s climate goals are ambitious: an 80% reduction in 1990 levels of CO2 emissions across Europe by 2050. This can only be achieved through much greater use of
