Intelligent Energy Management

The production of stainless steel is energy intensive, yet the consumption of individual plants is difficult to forecast. In order to avoid unforeseen peaks, RWE Supply & Trading GmbH (RWE) has set up a new type of power generation, including a storage facility, at Outokumpu, one of the world's largest producers of stainless steel. Sufficient energy reserves must be available 24 hours a day and deployed without delay. This challenge led RWE to Bachmann.
