TÜV NORD Group: Developing services for future power plants and grids
Hanover: The involvement of the TÜV NORD Group in the development of energy generation technologies is the company's main focus during the Hannover Messe.
The TÜV NORD Group is in Hall 13, Booth C 41, Hall 27, Booth K32 and Hall 24, Booth B14 10/11. In addition, the company will be reporting - during the Power Plant Technology user forum on Wednesday, April 22, at 10:30 a.m. - on the certification standard Carbon Capture Readiness certification standard planned new fossil-fuel power stations. During the World Energy Dialogue, the company will be focusing on aspects of safety and quality in digital control and instrumentation technology as a decisive prerequisite for power stations of the future.
In the future, energy provision will be increasingly based on low-CO2 generation technologies. Firstly, through new, highly-efficient fossil-fuel power stations whose greenhouse gas emissions will be considerably reduced by introducing CO2 capture and storage (CCS) methods. Secondly, through an increasing share of distributed generation with virtual power stations based on regenerative fuels and combined heat and power (CHP). For this, the necessary technical prerequisites must be created over the next few years; these include the creation and testing of CCS technologies in pilot and demonstration systems and the creation of high-performance communications services, smart metering and smart grid for virtual power stations.
