Rural Intelligent Grid

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. Goal of “RIGRID” is to design and test new interactive energy and infrastructure design tool for optimal planning and operation of new emerging energy infrastructures in rural areas. Objective is to reliably operate existing and future energy infrastructures (e.g. in Germany and Poland) organizationally and economically more efficient, through the use of modern management concepts. This increases reliability of supply and CO2-free energy-conform by end consumer and facilitates road for potential investors and local ‘authorities’ to green regional smart grid. Newly developed tool will give value added for each region visibility, efficiency up to new jobs potential considering technical-economic-sociological triangle and framework conditions.
