Across all three projects, SMILE technological solutions will assess the value of battery technology, power to heat, power to fuel, pumped hydro, electric vehicles, electricity stored on board of boats, an aggregator approach to demand side management (DSM) and a smart predictive algorithms in enhancing energy management on the local grid.
Expected outcomes by project end, to have:
- Built experience in implementing new smart grid architecture in preparation for larger scale deployments
- Helped grid operators and suppliers understand the requirements for smart grid systems and improve their design
- Helped propose innovative business models and regulations enabling the deployment of smart grid systems at acceptable costs for device owners, energy suppliers and operators
