A special aspect of Aspern Smart City Research is the electricity grid. To construct a smart grid, among others different types of data have to be collected from building automation systems and combined with current and predicted weather information. System optimization is then possible based on this data. A core issue is figuring out how much data and monitoring hardware the system requires to calculate cost and efficiency.
Siemens has assembled a three-part package whose main components include technologies for:
These technologies build the core of Aspern’s living lab concept.
Among the many unique features of Aspern’s living lab concept, one is that the cost efficiency of its electrical grid will not be rooted in a classic demand-based system. Instead, it is intended to generate and consume as much electricity as possible locally. This also requires local energy stores. The next level is to interact with the smart low-voltage grid, which allows simpler coordination between buildings and the grid.
