At the 17th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) in Dubai, held from 4-6 October, Siemens will illustrate the future of energy supply through its microgrid table and other energy storage solutions
The microgrid table is an interactive display and using the digital table, a grid system can be built that integrates power generated from renewables and traditional sources of energy without sacrificing grid stability.
Maintaining stability is increasingly important in today’s energy mix, which features a growing share of renewables and where it is often necessary to compensate for fluctuations in power supply.
Manfred Waidhas, head of Technology @ Innovation of Business Segment “Hydrogen Solutions” at Siemens AG, will present the topic of energy storage in the megawatt age. Speaking on Day 2 of the event, Waidhas will explain why hydrogen is an ideal solution as a multi-functional energy carrier and storage concept. In his presentation, he will demonstrate how Siemens in Germany has developed a decentralised hydrogen energy storage plant and how hydrogen can enable large-scale energy storage.
Jeff Dunlap, senior executive V-P of power and gas division at Siemens Middle East, will focus on three topics during his presentation at the show on the last day. Dunlap will explain how the dry fuel oil operation can reduce water consumption by 100 per cent; why combining heat, cooling and power in a cogeneration plant with an absorption chiller system allows the use of excess heat for cooling; and what the energy landscape will look like by 2050.
“At WETEX, Siemens will demonstrate its ability to support Dubai and the wider Middle East region with innovative technology underpinned by digitalisation,” said Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO of Siemens in the Middle East and UAE. “Business and society can reap the benefits of connecting the physical and virtual worlds. Our solutions for the power sector can help drive efficiency, productivity and reliability gains towards sustainable growth and economic diversification for the region’s population.”
Siemens turbines account for 40 per cent of the UAE’s power generation capacity.
