In this project, the dynamic optimization of the resource “Electric Energy” in an automated distributed grid Austria is explored. Energy consumers, energy producers and energy storage clients should coordinate intelligently the management of electric energy. The IRON Study project investigates the need and feasibility of new optimization mechanisms in the field of electrical energy.
The objectives are:
- to examine the communication methods between all the stakeholders of Electric Energy: The producers, the energy storage clients and the intelligent consumers
- The utilization of all the available optimization Technics for the short-term reduction of peak loads
- The provisioning of a new IT infrastructure for a global load management
The primary focus is the reduction of critical peak demand with the use of load shifts, a method that has beneficial results for both the producers and the consumers – a win-win situation. The efficient use of decentralized electric energy supply from virtual power plants will also be taken into account.
The project IRON
This project will be implemented within the framework of “Energy Systems of the Future” program, an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT). Currently, members of the Institute of Computer Engineering at the TU Vienna and the Institute of Energy Economics at the TU Vienna are working together in this project
