SmartEnergyHub research project develops smart data platform for infrastructure operators

12.03.2015

Infrastructure operators are already pushing the boundaries of what conventional energy management systems can cope with. This led Fraunhofer IAO and partners from the research and industrial communities to join forces as part of the SmartEnergyHub project to develop a smart data platform that reduces energy consumption by optimizing operational processes.

How can operators of complex infrastructure facilities such as airports, factories and manufacturing plants optimize energy management given the rapidly changing energy market?

Funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the SmartEnergyHub research project is developing a solution that revolves around a sensor-based smart data platform. Those involved in the project include Fraunhofer IAO and five other experienced partners.

The scope for optimizing existing energy management systems is becoming increasingly limited because solutions are not making use of all available sensor data and meter values. New approaches are called for that identify and exploit savings potential by taking into account all available information.

With this in mind, the research project partners are taking a forecasting- and market-based approach to open up new energy optimization opportunities for infrastructure operators.

Pilot project at Stuttgart airport

The ICT solutions that have been developed will be tested in a pilot project at Stuttgart airport. A user group will also be set up to accompany the project, for the purpose of providing other infrastructure operators with current research findings, discussing individual questions that the partners may have, and encouraging people to share their experience with one another.

Companies that want to optimize the way energy is used in their infrastructure can still participate in the user group. The kickoff event is scheduled for June 25, 2015.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
