General information

Short Summary
A Europe-based SME company specializes in providing the latest hardware and software solutions for smart building automation and control systems. The company is actively seeking collaborations under an R&D agreement, aiming to develop software that efficiently manages surplus energy production and minimizes consumption during low production periods through controllable equipment and storage devices in facilities. This project aims to reduce grid consumption and move closer to the Net Zero Carbon
Full Description
The main objective of the project is to develop software that efficiently stores and uses energy during periods of surplus energy production and minimizes consumption during periods of low energy demand. This aims to optimize the balance between energy production and consumption, reduce energy costs, and decrease the carbon footprint. Through smart building automation and control systems, energy storage and usage processes can be monitored and managed in real-time. This increases energy efficiency and contributes to the more sustainable use of energy resources.

The project enables detailed monitoring and analysis of energy consumption in buildings through systems equipped with advanced sensors and IoT technologies. This data is collected and processed via cloud-based platforms and optimized with AI-supported algorithms for energy management strategies. Efficient management of energy consumption not only provides cost savings but also makes significant contributions to environmental sustainability.

The project aims to develop intelligent control systems integrated with energy storage solutions that meet the highest standards of safety and functionality. The developed software will enhance energy management processes using innovative algorithms to maintain the balance between energy supply and demand. In this process, advanced technological solutions will be applied to increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
