In Sweden NEMoGrid project will perform an onsite test with the businessmodels and technology solutions currently developed in the project. on the 25th of may the testsite was awarded  the “ISGAN award of excellence” by the Swedish minister of energy at the worldwide event “Clean energy ministerial meeting 9” in Malmö.

About the price: The 2018 ISGAN Award of Excellence recognizes exemplars in the field of smart grids with a special focus on “flexibility” that will advance smart grids by improving the flexibility of the grid by balancing supply and demand simultaneously, thereby reducing customer losses from power disruptions.

The site is a rural customer owned electricity grid north of Stockholm in middle of Sweden. The grid peak subscription is 60MW and consists of around 14000 customers. In the grid we have shown that waterbased heatingsystems with heatpumps can create a lot of  end user flexibility in the grid. 250 houses can give over 1MW power over several hours, and the aim for the local project is to combine the flexibility with solarcells and carcharging and batteries. More on the local project

Based on the business model scenarios that NEMoGrid currently are developing we will be able to deploy tests of smart control and peer to peer clearing of energy and power from over 360 heatpumpsystems 10 sites with  total 75kwh of batteries combined with 60 sites of domestic solarcells and 15 carchargers.

 

We are looking for study participants …!

… who are already producing energy by their own or consume energy in the “traditional” way.

… give us feedback on energy business models of the future.

… who are interested to support a European research project.

Within our European research project NEMoGrid we want to investigate future scenarios of energy business models. Therefore, we want to take the perspectives of consumers and prosumers into consideration and investigate their acceptance, barriers and motivation to use different energy business models.

That’s why we are looking for study participants, who are willing to be interviewed for one hour. The interview will be conducted in English in May 2018. In preparation of the interview the interviewees will be asked to read about four different descriptions of recent and future energy business models in advance. We will provide you with the material beforehand. During the interview the interviewees will be asked to give feedback about these business models. To compensate the time and effort we will pay a remuneration of 40€.

If you are interested to participate in the study please fill in the pre-questionnaire here.

Thanks for your support.

Mission Stuttgart Completed

True to their name the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg ordered clear sky for the two days of our consortia meeting in Stuttgart. We had two days of fruitful discussions on all workpackages with the NEMoGrid consortia partners from Sweden, Switzerland and Germany. Our research ideas are becoming more and more specific and clouds of confusion have been blown away. Thanks to ZSW for hosting the meeting!

Stuttgart Calling

From the 11th to the 12th of January we will meet in Stuttgart for our first consortia meeting since the Kick-Off in May.

The host of the meeting will be the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg.

We look forward to fruitful discussions and the presentation of first workpackage findings.
