Projects

AnyPLACE (LCE-7 2014)

AnyPLACE is a European project that will develop a modular energy management system capable monitoring and  controlling local devices according to the preferences of end-users.

It will allow end-users to manage their energy expenditure and to become more efficient. Users will be able to take part in new energy services and take advantage of dynamic price tariffs to minimise their energy costs.

CryoHub (LCE-9 2015)

CRYOHUB is an EU-funded project to develop and investigate the potential of large scale cryogenic energy storage at refrigerated warehouses and food factories. The innovative CRYOHUB technology is based on storing renewable energy as a cryogenic liquid – which in the case of this project is liquid air.  This cryogen is then boiled at very low temperatures to generate electricity for on-site use or feeding the power grid during peak demand periods.  The cooling effect of boiling the cryogen is employed to refrigerate industrial facilities.

Elsa (LCE-8 2014)

The project Energy Local Storage Advanced system (ELSA) brings distributed storage solutions to maturity. Its objective is to enable their integration into the energy system and their commercial use.

ELSA addresses existing development needs by combining 2nd life batteries with an innovative local ICT-based Energy Management System in order to develop a low-cost, scalable and easy-to-deploy battery energy storage system.

EMPOWER (LCE-7 2014)

The EMPOWER concept aims to encourage and enable the active participation of citizens that consume and produce energy in the electrical system. It is based on the insight that a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and an increase of energy efficiency require radical changes in the way we produce and consume energy.

ENERGISE (LCE-7 2014)

ENERGISE is a research project of the EU Commission to do a cost/benefit analysis for smart grid infrastructure. The focus is on the core question: What should be the basis for the expansion of smart grids, independent proprietary communications networks of the electrical utilities or structures shared by the energy and telecommunications sectors?

The goal of ENERGISE is to provide an expert tool that can be used in deciding whether to expand the ICT infrastructure in shared or dedicated form. In addition, ENERGISE offers all participating stakeholders a platform for discussion, enabling them to share information on trends and developments in the area of “ICT infrastructure for smart grids.”

Flex4Grid (LCE-7 2014)

Flex4Grid aims at creating an open data and service framework that enables a novel concept of prosumer flexibility management, i.e. managing flexibility of prosumer demand and generation for the benefit for all key stakeholders: Cloud service providers will be able to offer new services to Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and prosumers; DSOs benefit from external services, peak load reduction and generation‐demand gap reduction; prosumers benefit by becoming an active market player for both, demand and generation; new market players will be able to offer services based on the third party data interface.
