Future power grids must adapt to new challenges by using renewable energy: Wind and sun generation depend on weather and can be produced at small scale and de-centrally. These changes to high volatility and bidirectional energy flow require completely new information and communication technology (ICT).
The Finnish-German consortium (the German part being funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy - BMWi) uses novel approaches including artificial intelligence and local markets to monitor and optimize systems and their maintenance.
In this project, Easy Smart Grid contributes and develops its technology of decentralized demand management to increase energy network efficiency and security of supply.
Project partners: DFKI (Project coordinator), Easy Smart Grid GmbH (Karlsruhe), TU Berlin, ALL4IP GmbH & Co. KG (Darmstadt), Jubic Oy (Vaasa), ABB Oy (Vaasa), University of Vaasa, Teknologian Tutkimuskeskus VTT Oy (Espoo)
