Energy Management Systems and Data Analytics

 

Our team, Energy Management Systems and Data Analytics (EMSDA), deals with the topic of how energy flows can be cleverly controlled to achieve higher system efficiency. We are working on questions of how measurement data and control signals can be reliably and securely communicated, stored and processed in the context of the smart grid. For this purpose, we develop systems which can process and evaluate large amounts of data. We cover a wide range of IT topics, from the development of platforms for energy-related use cases to IT security, data and information models. As a research team with IT focus in the energy sector, we understand both research areas and create synergy effects within the digitalization of the energy sector.

Research Projects of the Team

 

OneNet

The OneNet project will provide a seamless integration of all the actors in the electricity network across Europe for the optimization of the overall energy system and the creation of an open and fair market structure. More

 

MATRYCS

MATRYCS aims at addressing emerging challenges in big data management for buildings with an open holistic solution aimed at creating a European approach to Business to Business platforms, able to give a competitive solution to the European stakeholders operating in this sector and to open new market opportunities. More

 

BD4NRG

BD4NRG envisions to confront big data management challenges for the energy sector, giving a competitive edge to the European stakeholders to improve decision making and at the same time to open new market opportunities. More

 

Blockchain Real Laboratory in the Rhineland Territory

The project is part of the Real Laboratory Strategy of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. The aim is to promote and further develop digital innovations and the associated regulations in virtual and real test rooms in order to gain experience with innovative technologies under practical and real condi-tions. New technologies and business models that are only conditionally compatible with the existing legal and regulatory framework are to be tested in experiment rooms limited in time and space. More

 

AGENT

Agent systems for intelligent and robust control of complex energy systems in non-residential buildings as part of the higher-level energy system. More

 

National 5G Energy Hub

Researchers in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and communications engineering are to pool their expertise for the large-scale research project “National 5G Energy Hub.” The project of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is scheduled to start on May 1, 2018, at RWTH Aachen University.
