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: Goodbye, silicon? On the way to new electronic materials with metal-organic networks

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz (Germany) together with scientists from Dresden, Leipzig, Sofia (Bulgaria) and Madrid (Spain) have now developed and characterized a novel, metal-organic material which displays electrical properties mimicking those of highly crystalline silicon. The material which can easily be fabricated at room temperature could serve as a replacement for expensive conventional inorganic materials used in optoelectronics.

Silicon, a so called semiconductor, is currently widely employed for the development of components such as solar cells, LEDs or computer chips. High purity...

Im Focus: Storage & Transport of highly volatile Gases made safer & cheaper by the use of “Kinetic Trapping"

Augsburg chemists present a new technology for compressing, storing and transporting highly volatile gases in porous frameworks/New prospects for gas-powered vehicles

Storage of highly volatile gases has always been a major technological challenge, not least for use in the automotive sector, for, for example, methane or...

Im Focus: Disrupting crystalline order to restore superfluidity

When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.

We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
