Don’t Copy / Co-create smartly
The ReFlex project team visited the Powergrid demonstration site visits in Biel-Benken, Switzerland. The event was hosted by EBM, the local distribution system operator running the trial of GridSense, a fully decentralized residential management system. During the two days visits the ReFlex could learn about the control algorithm developed by the Swiss University of Applied Science and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) in cooperation with Alpiq, a leading Swiss electricity and energy services provider.
The demonstration site visit organized on the 23rd and 24th of November 2016 at the Ökopark in Hartberg, Austria, was the first event gathering research partners, practitioners and experts of the ReFlex project team. 20 participants of mixed backgrounds (sociologists, electrical and mechanical engineers, energy economists), coming mainly from Germany and Austria, could learn from the experiments carried out at the Ökopark in Hartberg. The presentations and guided tours, provided by the Hartberg demonstration project team, offered valuable insights into the different smart grid solutions on site and were followed by vivid discussions and questions from the attendees.
