NEMoGrid presentation at Swedish Energy Agency

Together with the Swedish Blockchain association The NEMoGrid project held a lunch presentation in Eskilstuna at the Swedish Energy Agency offices. The interest for this new way of thinking in the energy systems is of very large interest for the agency and several projects are involved in different aspects of the transition.

Karin Widegren chair of ISGAN (International Smartgrid Action Network) started with her presentation talking about the challenges in a regulatory perspective which has also been presented to OECD earlier

Joachim Lindborg from the NEMoGrid project presented the scenarios and the challenges in a regulated environment to enable flexibility and to use blockchain based markets to let aggregators share the value of optimizing the local DSO grids. This is what the pilot in Sweden will test in the NEMoGrid projekt

Benjamin Dahl and  presented on the current state of blockchain tech and especially on how the energy industry is testing the technologies

Consortium meet and greet in Chemnitz

The Professorship of Cognitive and Engineering Psychology hosted the NEMoGrid consortium meeting this week. From Monday the 24th till the 26th of September the partners met at Wilhlem-Raabe street in Chemnitz and discussed the results and further steps of the project. We focussed on the results of the interviews with pro- and consumers and the architecture design with regard to the implementation at the test sites. Furthermore, we went through the feedback brief of the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus Initiative on our first year report and incorporated the hints in our future work plan.

 

Working (in) Groups at Magdeburg

  

  

We are currently joining the ERA-Net Working Group meeting of the Smart Energy Systems projects in Magdgeburg. Three days of exchanging ideas and feedback on consumer and citizen involvement will end tomorrow. Thanks a lot to Fraunhofer IFF, who is hosting the meeting at the new science habor in Magdeburg.

NEMoGrid Publications

We are happy to announce that last month two NEMoGrid related conference papers have been accepted for publication.

The first article ‘Constrained hierarchical networked optimization for energy markets’ presents a multilevel hierarchical control which can be used to coordinate large groups of prosumers located at different voltage levels of the distribution grid, taking into account grid constraints. The article will be presented at the 8th IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies Conference in October.

The second article ‘A rational decentralized generalized Nash equilibrium seeking for energy markets’ has been accepted by the IEEE Smart Energy Systems and Technology conference, and is now a Best Paper Award Nominee!

To provide an overview of scientific publications and press releases we lauched a new page on this website. Have a look on PUBLICATIONS to read more about NEMoGrid results.

NEMoGrid entered Malmö

 

 

As announced previously, the NEMoGrid project participated at the ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems Knowledge Community Meeting in Malmö last week. The city surprised us with persistent blue sky and warm temperatures. The meeting took place under the umbrella of the Nordic Clean Energy Week providing several events at different locations in Malmö and Copenhagen. Behind the doors of Öresundsalen 1 the experts of research projects of both ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus calls from 2015 and 2016 met to share project results and develop new research questions for the living documents. Furthermore, the new joint call aiming to fund research ideas improving the design of regional energy system was launched. For more information regarding the new call have a look on the ERA-Net Smart Energy System Website. Thanks a lot to the ERA-Net SES knowledge community management team for the well-organized meeting.
