Iquadrat participates in the kick-off of the CONNECT project
CONNECT’s kickoff meeting was conducted in Munich, Germany during May 16th and 17th 2017. CONNECT investigates new concepts and technologies for power conversion, for efficient energy management and for secure communication infrastructure for the future Smart Grid. In CONNECT, Iquadrat will investigate the applicability of novel cooperative energy management schemes that target to reduce the total energy that urban buildings obtain from the distribution grid, by optimally utilizing the energy produced by renewable energy sources that are installed in the buildings, and by promoting energy exchanges between buildings. The developed cooperative system will be evaluated in a use-case scenario that will be implemented in Barcelona, which will be one of the four use-cases of the CONNECT project. Iquadrat will be also leading the dissemination and communication of the project’s results.
