Energy To Smart Grid

Electricity distribution has changed radically over the last few years, due to different forms of generation and the introduction of domestic renewable sources such as solar and wind that feed surplus energy into the national grids. There is therefore a growing need for a greater degree of automated control of supply and demand within electricity grids both at national and local levels – a so-called smart grid. The ENIAC JU project E2SG is addressing this requirement by developing methods for detecting and controlling energy flows in the grid with information transmitted over the grid itself.
