Over the next five years, the city of Dresden will become a Smart City with the help of EA Systems Dresden. The European Commission awarded the Horizon 2020 project “MAtchUP” the contract and is providing the project with a total of 17.5 million euros for more sustainability and intelligent networking. Dresden will thus become the fourth Lighthouse City in Germany, alongside Cologne, Hamburg and Munich.

What is planned?

The Dresden-Johannstadt district near the city centre is being transformed into an energy-efficient district. In addition to the implementation of concrete individual measures, the main focus is on the transferability and scalability of these measures to other districts and other cities. MAtchUp has the following main topics and goals:

  • Modernisation of residental buildings including PV-facilities and charging stations
  • Connecting local renewable energies, storage and smart control systems (e.g. tenant electricity models)
  • Develop a grid serving district storage system and its control strategies
  • Implement Charging infrastructures for e-mobility and smart mobility hubs
  • Plan and connect intelligent and sustainable street lighting
  • Design a Central Building Control Center (CBCC) to capture energy data of public buildings

Tasks of EA Systems Dresden GmbH

EA Systems Dresden is part of seven work packages. With it’s capabilities of model-based system simulation EA Systems Dresden plays an important role in the project as a whole. “We will develop and simulate a city district model of Johannstadt. In which we integrate and combine different strategies, measures and technologies. With this we will be able to reduce noise pollution, CO2 emissions and energy costs and thus create a better living environment for the local residents,” explains René Unger, CEO of EA Systems Dresden. The concrete work packages of EA Systems Dresden will be:

  • Modelling the project area (residential buildings, schools, charging infrastructures and tenant electricity models)
  • Development of a Green City district simulation model and its energy systems
  • Planning and operating strategies of a central district electricity storage
  • Test of concept variants und controlling strategies
  • Technical consulting for Central Building Control Center (CBCC)
  • Technical consulting for smart street lighting
  • Monitoring and evaluation of implemented measures
