The Nokia group has worked shoulder to shoulder with the Siemens Campus Micro grid, which has given best results and finished in the autumn of 2020, is a effective system that regulated the energy management and heating requirements on the company’s grounds. “A smart micro grid controller orchestrates linked equipment and optimizes power supply to account for peak requirements and grid capacity use from a centralized location.” Siemens Smart Infrastructure, a business that has studied micro grids in the United States and was instrumental in the creation of the project. The campus management system has been converted to a micro grid, which may alter the heating supply in the main building during peak demand hours, for example, to lower the amount of electricity required by the entire complex from the grid.”Electricity demand will continue to climb, driven mostly by integrated energy systems, which encompass both electromotive and heating supplies, The ability to maintain a secure and constant supply of energy will confront increasing and larger issues. Micro grid solutions are one answer to these issues, since the combination of independent power sources such as photostatic and regulated power consumption helps to prevent supply bottlenecks and peak loads that put the grid under stress.
In collaboration with @wef, we are proud to share a Lighthouse example of how a Nokia private wireless network was used to create an intelligent, ultra-efficient energy microgrid for @Siemens. Learn more: https://t.co/5mPamV6mHS #WEF22 pic.twitter.com/WPnbO5oz2I

Connectivity as intelligence
Nokia will offer spectrum as well as hosting and maintenance of the newly constructed campus network, while Nokia will provide an industrial-grade private wireless network. The micro grid assets on the Siemens campus are connected through a private wireless network, allowing for secure communication between micro grid controllers and metering or charging stations at guaranteed data rates and minimal latency. Despite their tiny size, micro grids are complex systems with many moving elements that require reliable communication because they employ dispersed energy sources such as solar cells and battery storage. The grid’s voltage levels are continually changing, demanding direct control for load balancing and optimization between various sources and loads.
Businesses all across the world are using renewable energy sources, storage, and micro-grids to help them decrease their environmental impact and fulfill their sustainability goals. By saving energy and providing security to industrial campuses, smartly regulated renewable inside a micro-grid are having an influence on a range of industrial applications. As announced earlier this month, Nokia is providing its industrial-grade private wireless technology and services to all current and future A1 Austria LTE and 5G business campus network deployments, accelerating A1’s corporate clients’ digital transformation. The electrical network becomes more adaptable as the energy system becomes more decentralized. The ability to manage and advertise the flexibility provided by smart optimization solutions will become increasingly desirable to the industrial sector, as well as campuses and bigger commercial companies. A future driver of this development will be the ability to eliminate power surges, adapt power demand to pricing on the spot market, and make flexibility accessible on the balancing energy market.
In addition to the project’s unique characteristics stated above, the model insertion for transmission across micro grid assets is very intriguing. It uses a Pre5G campus network, which means micro grid communications can use a specified frequency band. Data may be reliably sent between the controllers and the tags or charging stations with a guaranteed connection rate and minimal latency.
