Project Title

Micro Smart Grid EUREF

Brief Description

The goal is to expand the Micro Smart Grid (MSG) to form a research and testing network. The conceptual development foresees the implementation of additional hardware components, such as energy generators and storage units, but also the connection of the MSG to a decentralized energy management system. All components will be integrated in such a way that allows for an examination of multiple scientic questions that will form part of a Masters program called "Energy and the City" at the TU-Campus EUREF gGmbH. The operative goal is to provide the integrated car sharing fleet with 100% renewable energies and to expand the EUREF Campus long-term into a self-sufficient "island" operation.
