LIC feat. NEMoGrid & NEMoGrid feat. LIC

Since May 2019 the NEMoGrid coordinating partner SUPSI is also involved in a new pilot project called “Lugaggia Innovation Community” (LIC). Therefore, the NEMoGrid consortia has the chance to cooperate with this national funded project, supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy, the Cantonal Fund for Renewable Energy (FER) and the Authority for Development of Lugano Region (ERSL). Luggagia (a community close to the city of Lugano) provides the opportunity to implement and investigate a self-consumption community. A comprehensive battery will store the locally produced solar power and an algorithm manages demand and supply. The self-consumption community consits of 18 houses equipped with heat pumps and photovoltaic systems. As this is in line with one of our NEMoGrid scenarios, we will collaborate in terms of the field trial conduction. Find more information about the LIC project here.

Consortia Meeting in Stockholm

Last week the NEMoGrid consortia met in Stockholm and planned the last half of project work. Sustainable Innovation hosted our meeting and we discussed especially the field trial locations in Sweden and Switzerland. Here two different scenarios will be tried out in practice: a DSO controlled one in Björklinge and a Peer-to-Peer scenario in Lugano.

 

 

Our technical development of future energy business models is getting more concrete and closer to implementation. As our project follows a user centered design approach, we want to incorporate user requirements with regard to the interface design. In particular, we want to investigate what kind of information pro- and consumers require within the Peer-to-Peer scenario and what kind of strategies would motivate them.

We want to figure that out by conducting two focus groups. The first one will take place in Sweden. More precisely in Björklinge or Uppsala at the beginning of June. Therefore, we are looking for prosumers – people who are already produce energy e.g., by their own photovoltaic plant. If you like to discuss with other people and contribute to the design of an interface you are very welcome to participate. The focus group will last about two hours and we offer a remuneration of 40€ (430 SEK) for the participation.

Online Survey Closed

We closed our online survey yesterday and want to thank all our participants for their patience to give detailed answers on our questions!

We got nearly 200 completed questionnaires and will start to analyse the data now. But first of all we will spin our lottery wheel and draw the winners of  our survey raffle. You will receive an email today if you have been lucky.

A summary of the survey results will be published soon here on our website.

 

TUC feat. Online Survey

The NEMoGrid project and an invitation to our online survey is featured on the home page of TU Chemnitz today!

As posted before, you are also kindly invited to fill in our questionnaire. We are interested in: How do you prefer to consume and produce energy in the future?

The completition will take you 35min and as an incentive we draw 5 x 20€. Here is the LINK to start our questionnaire.
