Presentation of EEPOS within the frame of the German DKE initiative “Energiewende 180°” for the transition towards sustainable energy supply

Abstract: Durch den wachsenden Anteil erneuerbarer Energien an der Stromversorgung werden neue Herausforderungen an die Stromnetze gestellt. Die starke Abhängigkeit der Produktionsraten erneuerbarer Energien von Tageszeit und Wetter macht es zudem notwendig, Phasen von Energieüberschuss oder -mangel durch Speicherlösungen und intelligentes Lastmanagement auszugleichen. DERlab entwickelt im Rahmen des EEPOS Projektes gemeinsam mit sieben Partnern aus Forschung, Industrie und öffentlicher Hand ein Energiemanagementsystem, das innerhalb einer vernetzten Nachbarschaft den Energieverbrauch an die aktuelle Produktionsrate anpasst.

Automation and Energy Management Solutions

Abstract: Deployment of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) for the energy supply for buildings and residential areas is increasing significantly. Even today many consumers have begun to produce electricity locally and thus become “prosumers”. At high RES penetration, in times of high wind or photovoltaic energy production, the availability of electricity may exceed the consumption. Without proper energy management, this surplus amount
of produced energy may be lost. Bidirectional energy management systems can help to cope with these challenges, for example by the exploitation of load shifting or virtual storage potentials. The EEPOS research and development project aims at the realization of the idea of energy positive neighbourhoods in Europe.
