Residence and Mobility

Combined local renewable energy supply of home, office and mobility has been the main idea of the collaborative project “Residence and Mobility“. The project focused on potential energy savings achieved through the integration of electrical and thermal storages as well as modified usage profiles (virtual storage).

In order to meet the various requirements, a novel Modelica-based simulation program was developed, which enables us to represent the building supply systems from decentralized, renewable energy sources. For this purpose a comprehensive building energy management system was created, which is able to visualize and control the individual energy flows.  By means of intelligent algorithms and predictive data, not only energy producers and consumers, but also the associated, storage units are recorded. In combination with this energy management system, we developed a self-learning, modular communication and network infrastructure for charging stations for electric vehicles.

Object of research: Balancing renewable energy, energy management and e-mobility

Project Details

  • Validation of the energy management algorithms using corresponding simulation results
  • The complete implementation of our energy system concept, including heat pump, local energy generation and storage as well as a charging station for electric vehicles, is already operational in a reference project in Dresden Blasewitz
  • Our model-based energy management system enables intelligent control of the energy flows between PV system, battery storage and heat pump, based on weather and energy consumption data.
