ASTEA – December 2019
Matteo Lorenzetti from ASTEA gave us some news about what has been happening in Osimo since the last Newsletter.
What have been the updates in Osimo since last September?
First Installations of the components necessary to implement, test and validate the MUSE GRID control architecture are already started (smart water meters; advance metering and control infrastructure). The executive design of the various technologies to be installed in Osimo is almost completed (Thermal Energy Storage, Electric Energy Storage, Smart Control of the CHP Plant),
In parallel we are supporting the definition of DSM schemes necessary to coordinate the flexibility assets in Osimo.
By doing reference to some “ready to test” technology such as AC charging station and Smart Electric Thermal Storage (SETS) we are a step ahead (delivery phase).
What do you think are the most important results since last September?
From our perspective, the results are related to the final definition of all the technical aspects necessary to overcome criticalities in the installation phases, as well as developing the MUSE GRID control architecture and defining DSM schemes necessary to verify the effective interactions among the different flexibility assets and energy networks.
What were the main challenges of the year and how did you overcome them?
Finalizing the installations of the first equipments (SETS and AC Charging station) as well as continue the development and integration of the other technological assets. Thus we enable us to implement test and validate the MUSE GRID control architecture and DSM solutions tailored for our Demosite.
What should we expect in 2020?
In 2020 we will see an important step forward in the demonstration activities and implementation of the various technologies. This will be feasible only with the cooperation of end consumers and MUSE GRIDS partners involved in our Demosite.
