The funding phase of this EC co-funded project has finalised, however several tools continue to be used to good effect.

We wish to share these as well as several important points that we learnt throughout the project, click here for our Lessons Learned!

Meet the project

The aim of the GreenCom project is to utilise the flexibility and intelligence in the low-voltage demand and local supply side infrastructure to create increased regulation capacity and reserve power in the centralised power grid by extending the means to effectively and securely manage and control the demand and supply within defined boundaries. The project thus aims to balance the local exchange of energy at the community microgrid level, to avoid affecting the centralized grid with instability.

Hence, the GreenCom Smart Energy Management System is well suited for energy management in defined communities, such as Smart Cities. 

To solve provide such means, the GreenCom project will develop a Smart Energy Management System (SEMS), i.e. an energy management and control platform that allows energy providers (Distribution System Operators or Retailers) for the first time ever to measure and balance load in the low-voltage grid and thereby prevent or reduce critical peak situations. It will thus allow the energy distributors to move beyond focussing on Power Grid efficiency and start focussing on Energy System effectiveness; a giant step forward in European energy distribution.

The GreenCom Smart Energy System will collect, aggregate and analyse real-time or near real-time data from appliance level consumption devices such as appliances, smart home devices, sensors and actuators and smart meters, via an independent data communication network. The data analysis will provide real-time consumption data on type of devices and location together with short term forecasts (up to 4 hours). Data can be aggregated over several sectors of the grid.
