Intermittent and decentralized power generation requires coordination on the demand side as well as flexible options that are readily available. Currently, numerous new business models in the area of Smart Buildings are being developed: Energy management gateways are being used to connect and control different types of systems, sensors, meters, generating systems, controllable loads and feedback systems in order to analyze energy management and to optimize grid operation.
Our R&D services include:
- Prototyping and secure integration of smart meters and energy management platforms
- System modeling and simulation-based control strategies, optimizing electricity and heat, integration in Smart Home Systems
- Web-based feedback systems to visualize system efficiency and develop user interfaces
- Smartphone and tablet applications, Apps
