General information

Short Summary
Spanish institute of technology with 30 years of experience in renewable energies has developed a software system for optimising and managing self-consumption installations, and increase the viability of micro grids. The institute seeks SMEs for establish commercial agreement with technical assistance and big companies or other agents for investment agreement.
Full Description
The Institute, located in Gran Canaria island (Spain), has 30 years the experience in the development of different initiatives and projects in the renewable energy field related with wind and solar energies.

The development of microgrids and hybrid systems is limited by the penetration of renewable sources that increases sustainability in weak electricity systems such as those existing in the Canary Islands and West Africa. Weak electricity distribution refers to a system that distributes low-voltage electricity.

The software tool is an advanced system for optimising and managing self-consumption installations using photovoltaic solar energy and a battery storage system on low-voltage grids. Using optimisation algorithms and machine learning methods, the system makes decisions based on energy generation and consumption predictions. It also considers electricity prices, whether fixed or subject to market fluctuations. The main objective is to reduce operational costs of the overall system while increasing its lifetime. The developed system is also prepared for integration of potential future flexibility markets that could further increase the viability of micro grids.

This solution was developed for residential and industrial micro grid system installers and/or energy systems integrators who need to optimise the management of the micro grids in a smart and sustainable way.

The solution was developed in the frame of a European project and the pilot development is TRL7.

The institute is interested in:

Commercial Agreement with Technical Assistance: SMEs interested in the technology for exploitation. The institute offers additional support services.

Investment Agreement: Investors interested in further development, companies and research centres.
Advantages and Innovations
1) Development of machine learning algorithms and flexible energy management systems (EMS) for residential and industrial micro grids.
2) Solution approach for the communication between the energy management system (EMS) of the consumer and Grid operator.
3) Definition of the hardware required for the management of residential and industrial microgrids.
4) Real-time monitoring and follow-up of the self-consumption system through an interactive interface.
5) Management algorithm and adaptive control of the power demanded for the production of domestic hot water by means of electric water heaters.
6) Adaptive management and control algorithm for charging electric vehicles.
