Intelligent energy management at the level of districts and neighborhoods is one of the keys to security of supply in a CO2-neutral, networked energy system. Local generators and flexible consumers are harmonized in low-voltage grids at the local level, helping to reduce complexity at higher voltage levels.
Especially at district level, sector coupling plays an important role. For this reason, experts at Fraunhofer Energy Research are researching cross-sectoral and CO2-neutral concepts that optimally coordinate and bring together the multitude of market participants. In the area of districts, the inclusion of electromobility (e-mobility) is relevant. In addition, we work with our customers to develop market platforms for decentralized energy business models. Due to our comprehensive competencies in this area, we view challenges from a holistic perspective and are already working with our stakeholders on comprehensive solutions in real lighthouse districts.
