Intracom Telecom activities in this domain address the need for more flexible and "smarter" electricity grids with the integration of decentralized energy resources and the completion of the internal energy market operation mechanisms. The company also implements technology that facilitates energy efficiency initiatives.
RESOLVD is a 3-years collaborative project, co-funded by European Commission, under Grant Agreement 773715. The project aims to improve the efficiency and the RES hosting capacity of the electricity distribution networks, in a context of highly distributed renewable generation and storage, by proposing innovative Distributed Storage Systems that enhance flexibility and control in the low voltage grid, as well as hardware and software solutions that improve its observability with wide area monitoring capabilities, demand/production forecasting and automatic fault detection and isolation.
Intracom Telecom's role is to provide a platform that integrates legacy systems of the Distribution System Operator (e.g. SCADA, AMI) and newly developed hardware and software applications, and handles data management and analytics processes.
The project SmarterEMC2 implements ICT tools that support Customer Side Participation and RES integration, and facilitate open access in the electricity market. These tools take into account the SGAM as well the future structure of the Distribution Network as described by the relevant EU bodies and organizations. The project supports standardization activity by proposing adaptation to data models of market-oriented standards (e.g. IEC 62325-351) and field level standards (e.g. IEC 61850). Intracom Telecom is the coordinator of this project, and is responsible for the implementation of the ICT infrastructure related to a Demand Response service.
DAMAZO was a project coordinated by Intracom Telecom dedicated to the development of a Building Energy Management solution that supports interaction with Demand Response Automation Server and applies the concept of Application Service Provision in Demand Response services. In this project Intracom Telecom delivered the Demand Response Automation Server, supporting OpenADRv1.0 standard and including a prototype Demand Response policy engine.
