The focus of SINERGY is experience and knowledge exchange in the field of smart energy management among the partners, especially towards the reinforcement of IMP’s capabilities. Therefore a suitable platform for excellence and innovation capacity-building is envisaged that will allow for a faster take-up and transfer of domain knowledge and technologies.
The platform is comprised of two actual pilot settings allowing for a practical demonstration of the state of the art concepts and methodologies in smart
energy management domain:
- Pilot 1 – Smart Grid Technologies is aimed to demonstrate grid-level techniques and technologies (such as relevant smart grid concepts and integration of distributed smart grid elements), see AIT facilities (EnergyBase, TechBase),
- Pilot 2 – Energy Efficient Building Operation is aimed to demonstrate building level optimization approaches (such as building modeling and improving building operation efficiency), thus ensuring exchange of complementary know-how and expertise which covers both energy supply and energy consumption side, see NUIG Alice Perry Engineering Building.
Pilot settings are made available by AIT and NUIG for the purpose of the project activities, such as combined live demonstrations and theoretically oriented lectures and workshops to be carried out. In addition to these pilot settings,
- Testbed pilot will be set up at IMP premises (see “Blue building”), providing a training site for direct deployment of advanced technologies delivered by the strategic partners.
