Energy

Power generation

The expansion and restructuring of energy production will require considerable efforts in the coming years. The move away from coal, gas and oil towards electricity from renewable sources is leading to the rapid expansion of many decentralised generation facilities. In order to make the move away from fossil fuels efficient, Rittal offers you high-performance, cost-optimised system solutions for renewable energies. Standardised components in modular design make it easier for you to plan and set up the system.

Energy transmission

The growing share of renewable energies is putting enormous strain on the electricity grid and increasing its complexity.  A multitude of decentralised actors generate energy. At the same time, generation fluctuates depending on location, time of day and weather conditions.

In order to balance generation and consumption, the energy infrastructure must therefore become more transparent, flexible and intelligent. For maximum protection of your power grid technology, even in harsh ambient conditions, Rittal provides you with a modular system of enclosures and climate control components to meet these challenges.

Energy storage

Energy storage systems are indispensable for the success of the energy transition, in order to utilise excess capacities and keep the grid in balance.  As a partner with experience in the industry, Rittal offers you the right solutions to decouple power generation and power consumption over time. With a flexible, scalable modular system, Rittal makes it easier for you to set up energy storage systems and offers you various components that are perfectly matched to one another: Enclosures, power distribution, climate control solutions, automation solutions for control and switchgear engineering, and worldwide service.

Energy consumption

Energy consumption has different aspects. On the one hand, it is about efficient energy management, with which companies can reduce electricity consumption. Sector coupling, i.e. the connection of the electricity, heat, building, transport and industry sectors, is another important component of the energy transition.

With regard to increasing e-mobility, it is crucial to make electricity available at many decentralised points - in charging parks, at home, at the employer's or when shopping. In short: charging infrastructure is necessary where the car is parked.

Rittal is tackling the new issues together with its sister companies Eplan and GEC in order to digitise and automate processes. In this way, even complex systems and tasks can be presented transparently and aligned more quickly with the future.

Companies in the mobile telecommunications or infrastructure sector often have to install their solutions outdoors. The electrical components need to be well protected from weather and any other external threats. Solutions for outdoor use, therefore, need to be corrosion-resistant, able to withstand high ambient temperatures over long periods, and demonstrate a long life cycle. Solutions for outdoor use thus have to be corrosion-resistant, able to withstand high ambient temperatures over long periods, and demonstrate a long life cycle.

Hygienic Design solutions have tested quality which means that the entire solution has been tested for water/dust-tightness in accordance with the specified standards and regulations:

  • Smooth surface finish is easy to clean and disinfect (Ra of less than 0.8 μm)
  • No hard-to-clean gaps where contamination could collect
  • Liquid contaminants quickly run off the top of the enclosure due to the 30 degree inclination
  • Protection of IP56/59
  • Silicone seal prevents transfer of colourants, flavourings and unwanted odours
  • Dyed blue seals making them clearly distinguishable from contaminants e.g. food residues
  • International standards & approvals (DIN EN ISO 14159:2008, DIN EN 1672-2:2009, C-UR, CSA)
  • Tested in accordance to GS-NV 6
