Welcome

Towards the Interoperable energy ecosystem of the future” is the name of the event organised by the InterConnect project under the scope of the Sustainable Energy Week – an initiative promoted by the European Commission.

The event gathers different stakeholders working together to digitalize the European electric sector. Representatives from the Directorate-General Connect of the European Commission (EC), the Joint-Research Centre (JRC) of the EC and the RWTH Aachen University will have an important role in this event, as keynote speakers.

Besides, the “Semantic Interoperability Framework” of the project – its main achievement – will be presented in this event. The role of the European industry towards the interoperable energy ecosystem of the future is the motto of the main discussion that will be held in this event. Industrial representatives of the project will discuss this topic with the participants, namely the changes that need to occur, the main challenges and, of course, the path to a more sustainable and long-lasting ecosystem.

At the end of the event, the participants will have the opportunity to attend a technological showcase of the representative technologies that the project is developing in this context.

Automated processing of energy measurements for the provisioning of analytics and recommendation services

Data analytics services and recommendations for promoting green energy and cost savings

Main innovations

Problem: Need for shifting from fossil to greener energy as well as cost savings is essential for consumers and DNOs.

Solution: Data analytics services and recommendations can provide in depth knowledge and predictions for optimized usage. It will help to better cope with energy consumption management for both DNOs and consumers.

Grid-friendly home smart devices

Data analytics services and recommendations for promoting green energy and cost savings

Main innovations

Problem: When the grid faces supply issues, a signal can be sent to a certain area so its homes could react to help solve these issues in real-time. In addition, thanks to consumption predictions, grid operators can avoid very costly demand peaks, asking homes to adapt their consumption behaviour.

Solution: The Demand-Response solution relies on making home devices, equipment and white goods interoperable to make them reactive to grid needs. Home energy management systems and smart meters’ data are harmonized (SAREF-ized) so one home can receive a request via the interoperability layer to adapt their consumption and actuate on the devices regardless of the provider. User preferences are considered, preconfigured in a mobile app, to select which devices should change consumption.

Partners involved

Interoperable EMS control of
domestic appliances

The adoption of the technology allows the demonstration of flexible delayed start of appliances according to the flexibility needs.

Main innovations

Problem: The common household is built from an assortment of appliances from different manufacturers, exposing a multitude of requirement for concept representation, data access and appliance control. The scenario imposes limitations for an observation and control service as the EMS, requiring adoption and integration with distinct manufacturers.

Solution: Adoption of the Interconnect’s Semantic Interoperability Framework, introducing transparent domain-centric concepts such as flexibility and interfacing with appliances and services from several manufacturers.
