Innovative energy management system for smart buildings and grid interactions

This project will develop a platform for an innovative energy management system for smart energy buildings with own renewable energy based production and energy storage devices within a microgrid context. The platform can be used to cost-effectively match the building’s energy demand by its customers with own local generation and energy storage devices in a near real-time manner. The project aims at improving the efficiency of energy uses in buildings and reducing total energy demands in buildings without compromising the level of comforts of customers. The project will also help to increase the renewable energy production, reduce customers’ energy bills, buildings’ carbon footprint, improve the operation of distribution networks, as well as reduce the needs for distribution grid investment. The project will involve the measurements and validations using a real world Living Lab, which is a unique feature of the project.
