Hybrid Grids Demo Hartberg

Purpose of the project is the development and the “Living Lab” test operation of a passive energysource- and network-wide distribution management (= energy sponge) over a particularly multipliable approach to harmonize network profiles, increase direct utilization rate of renewables in the project area and surrounding areas, increase efficiency in the generation / distribution and consumption as well as for comprehensive integration of renewables in the city of Hartberg. The focus of the project is a new approach: Central optimizer + passive network control + business model (new / local aggregation level) + Living Lab
