The pro-integrative planning of renewable energy sources and flexible consumers under consideration of technical, market economy and sociological aspects provides key challenges for establishment of regional smart grid concept. The goal of the RIGRID project is to develop and test new interactive energy and infrastructure design tool for optimal planning and operation of new emerging energy infrastructures in rural areas.
The objective of the RIGRID project is to develop modern management concepts to operate the existing and future energetic infrastructures (e.g. in Germany and Poland) in a more efficient way. The expected impacts will have positive consequences on the reliability of power supply, which will increase, on the emission of CO2, which will decrease, and on visibility of local authorities which will increase for attracting new potential investors to develop green regional smart grids and create new jobs.
The implementation of RIGIRD project will take place in two rural regions, one in Poland and the other in Germany, which present different infrastructures and climatic conditions, but similar problematic of rural regions.
RIGRID addresses the main objectives of the ERA-Net Smart Grid Plus initiative through the development of methodologies, tools and demonstration in the field of smart grids regarding three research layers:
RIGRID has an interdisciplinary consortium from Germany and Poland consisting of a research institution, an academy, an industry, a promotion center and local municipalities. The teams is composed by engineers, computer scientists and researchers.
