Fraunhofer ITWM pioneers open energy management

06.06.2012
Fraunhofer ITWM already provides the technology needed for tomorrow's smart grid.

The expansion of renewable energies is characterized by de-centralized energy generation and storage. When plenty of consumers turn to prosumers that also produce energy, intelligent energy management solutions are needed.

Featuring the open energy management platform mySmartGrid and an upcoming yield forcast technology, prosumers are empowered to maximize their PV on-site consumption with myPVSpy.

Balancing energy production and consumption is made easy with the mySmartGrid platform. Fraunhofer integrates a complete set of devices and web technologies: Based on independent metering and the intelligent yield forecast PVCAST, user-friendly visualizations are generated, as well as schedules for switching devices through flexible home automation components. Combined with de-centralized energy storage in myPowerGrid, the expansion of renewable energies is going to take place in private households.

The technically mature mySmartGrid platform is ready to be applied by retailers such as energy-cooperatives, PV installers and communities of ecologically aware people. Retailers benefit from the commitment to open source technology that allows for tailored systems with minimum effort. Installation and end customer support processes are made as easy as possible. The production-grade remote support system is already built-in.

End customers maximize their return on investment in PV power plants by achieving an excellent price-performance ratio. Additionally, vendor-independent PV monitoring functionality prevents unnoticed yield losses. Recorded consumption and production data can be compared at a glance. Optionally, the platform is extended with HexaBus home automation components for controlling devices.

Please visit us at booth B2/514 on the Intersolar exhibition in Munich from Wednesday, June 13, to Friday, June 15, 2012.

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
