HANNOVER BERLIN, Germany March 1, 2011 Peer Cloud Hannover
Private households consume about one third of the electricity produced by power stations, which is delivered over the national grid of 700 public utility companies whether to the doorbell or to the washing machine. The consumer knows when he wants to wash, when the dishwasher will run, but the public utility companies have never had a clue – until now. To date, the actual electric power consumption per consumer at a certain point in time has not been at all predictable to electricity generators. Standard load profiles are too imprecise. The load curve is hard to optimize. Thus, the national grid always has to be oriented towards the possibility of maximum loads, with back-up power stations ready as needed for overloads.
The aim of the "Peer Energy Cloud" consortium is the development of innovative recording and forecasting methods for the development of load curves to optimize the load flow, as well as the establishment of a virtual marketplace for power trading within the so-called "Micro Grids." This marketplace allows the balancing of energy demand and supply within the local grid, which in turn reduces stress on the nationwide grid. This bottom-up approach helps to increase the overall network stability and reduces the need for costly upgrades to the nationwide grid infrastructure.
"Information and communication technologies play a central role in the peer energy cloud. Thus, we will create a trustworthy environment for our project to master this challenge in a secure and reliable manner," concludes Prof. Dr. Wilfried Juling, Chief Science & Information Officer (CSO/CIO), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
