The electricity grids of the future will feed themselves locally from wind, sun and water. However peaks and troughs are inevitable. Smart grids will control the power supply and demand thus ensuring a reliable flow of current. Employing Infineon’s innovative semiconductor solutions means that electricity comes from the socket with low losses. Our power electronics transmit energy from the power station to the consumer efficiently, over thousands of kilometers. From the solar cell, through the power grid, all the way to the washing machine – Infineon’s leading power semiconductors, microcontrollers and sensors secure the company an ideal position in the growth market of “energy efficiency” and, looking ahead, make Infineon the perfect partner for optimizing the entire energy chain.
