The exploratory project includes the evaluation of the usefulness ofeigenlastCluster new approaches for the increasing of self-consumption of electricity and heat in buildings of municipality of Großschönau.  Models for battery  and for H2 storage of the company Fronius, as well as a model for the energy production from PV plants were developed and theoretical consumption clusters were formed, in order to maximize the local consumption of the PV produced energy thus the self-consumption. Furthermore, an exemplary Demand Side Management (DSM) algorithm for the residential and commercial consumers was developed in order to achieve greater maximization. The above cluster scenarios, with or without batteries and H2 storages, as well as with and without DSM usage, were economically evaluated, pointing out, that PV and battery storages are working well together but H2 storages are too expensive for the moment.


About energyit

Energy & IT is a research group at the Institute of Computer Technology at the Vienna University of Technology. We work in research projects of two domains, on one side power engineering and information technology (IT) on the other side, with our goal of connecting both fields of research. The CO2-complex of problems, rising energy demand, and use of IT are causing a fundamental change of electrical energy usage. The tasks of IT inside the energy system starts with sensory data acquisition of usage data, including databases, electrical energy services, up to global distributed control mechanisms of distributed energy resources.
