SmartEco - An Approach Using Electric Storage Heaters for Demand Side Management
The transition from fossil generated energy towards regenerative energy sources is an important topic. Especially the generation from wind power plants and photovoltaic systems underlines the most important difference in comparison to conventional energy generation and distribution. One of the main characteristics of renewable energy sources is its decentralized generation, where existing distribution paths will become more and more a bottleneck in the future. The solution for this challenge is called smart grid and is driven by information, such as energy consumption, in order to match energy demand and supply. The SmartEco idea makes it possible to offload some of the energy’s surplus form the grid to individual customer homes in the context of the smart gird approach.
