Artificial Intelligence for Next Generation Energy
The overall vision and main objective of the project is to deliver an innovative energy-specific open modular framework for artificial intelligence (AI), which relies on a highly distributed open-source interoperability reference architecture. I-NERGY will enable cross-sectoral AI-based analytics for integrated and optimized smart energy management, based on seamless exchange of data, information, and knowledge under relevant principles of sovereignty and regulation.
The project aims to develop, upgrade and demonstrate an innovative AI tool adapted to energy (I-NERGY Toolbox), based on the I-NERGY platform, which will significantly contribute to achieving techno-economically optimal management of the electricity and energy systems (EPES) value chain. This will range from optimal risk assessment for planning energy efficiency investments to optimized grid and non-network owned assets, improving the efficiency and reliability of electricity grids.
The virtual energy community in Croatia will bring together 100 consumers with installed solar power plants (focusing on private households, but also exploring opportunities for the introduction of non-residential buildings – public buildings, industrial parks, etc. to diversify consumer types). Beneficiaries involved in the project will be deployed in at least 5 geographical areas (focusing on cities in Croatia that already work closely with the Green Energy Cooperative).
Objectives to be achieved include:
Users and owners of small solar power plants who have installed their solar power plant through Green Energy Cooperative’s Nasuncanojstrani.hr service, we offer to become part of the first virtual energy community and get acquainted with tools for P2P sharing and electricity trading. Through their participation, they will help to adapt the concept of distributed electricity generation and the direction in which the global electricity market is adjusting to the local context, as well as help to improve the regulatory framework.
The project started on January 1, 2021, and will last 36 months. The project received funding from the Program for research and innovation Horizon 2020 within the grant agreement no. 101016508.
