“Smart Grids Energy management Staff “

Project website: http://www.smartgems.tuc.gr/smart_gems.html

Program type: MSCA-RISE-2014: Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE)

Project details: Smart grids provide an excellent topic for knowledge sharing, creativity and entrepreneurship. The major aspects of smart grid interdisciplinary nature to be examined by SMART GEMS are:

  •  Renewable Energy Sources Integration (PV, Concentrated PV, Small Hydroelectric, Concentrated Solar Thermal, Cogeneration, Geothermal)
  •  Smart metering and interconnection with the electricity grid
  •  Demand response and demand management
  •  Smart buildings
  •  Smart controls and optimisation
  •  Integration and conflicts’ management
  •  Technology and innovation

Smart GEMS is based on a cycle expansion of three phases:

The first phase starts from the users (prosumers) aspects by focusing on smart and zero energy building analysis. In the second phase research activities are focused on the various smart grid components expanding the cycle by the smart grids’ penetration at community level.

The third phase concerns the integration of all components targeting the development of smart applications for optimisation purposes.
