Advancing Towards Wisdom: A Vision and Need for Interoperability

A simplified approach to advancing grid technology involves design with built-in compatibility to ensure seamless communication. However, building different complex systems (e.g., intelligent transport systems, smart grid systems, smart city systems) and interfaces that work well together is challenging. There are many rules and methods that must be followed, which can cause confusion among [...]

Implementing smart grids in African contexts

Introduction With a high potential for renewable energy production, an economy in expansion and areas disconnected from the electricity grid, Africa has some of the best opportunities to experiment with smart grid technologies. The EU research and innovation project ENERGICA investigates these opportunities through three pilots, in Kenya, Madagascar and Sierra Leone. In this [...]

Technical overview of G3-PLC Hybrid PLC&RF

Introduction Since its first public specification in 2015 and its continuous development by the G3-PLC Alliance, the G3-PLC technology has been broadly deployed all over the world for smart metering and other applications. One of the feedbacks from large roll-out was that, while connectivity to 99% of devices was possible, achieving consistent connectivity to [...]

Geographical islands: A laboratory for smart grids

Based on the European projects GIFT and MAESHA Geographical islands are particularly relevant in the study of energy management, as they are one of the very few areas where the electricity system almost fully operates as a closed-loop system. Owing to few or no interactions with external grids that would facilitate network operation and [...]

Enabling the interoperability of Linky local data (TIC) using the SAREF ontology

With the rapidly increasing number of Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the energy domain created by billions of devices and the resulting data, the integration of sensors and actuators for effective automation is a fundamental requirement for maintaining Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication. The key elements for a successful smart-energy system are the compliance and [...]

A semantic-based IoT reasoner demo within Trilab

In recent years, there has been an increasing number of sensors embedded in smart devices (e.g. smartphones, smartwatches and smart glasses). These smart devices are becoming increasingly connected to the internet, and the data is sent to the Internet to create the “Internet of Things” (IoT) applications (also known as the “Web of Things”). [...]

The interoperability of smart grids and smart buildings through use cases and standardisation

I – Smart buildings as a flexibility source to support power grids The energy transition implies a change in the way we operate the electrical system. The increasing connection of distributed renewable energy sources requires the electricity grid to manage unpredictable and non-dispatchable sources of energy. Furthermore, the electrification of fields such as transport [...]

BRIDGE: Enabling interoperable data exchange for smart energy grids in Europe

BRIDGE, a EU initiative gathering all Horizon 2020 smart grid innovation projects BRIDGE is a EU initiative launched by the European Commission in 2016 to foster collaboration and consolidate results between the research & innovation projects in the area of smart grids, energy storage, islands and digitalisation of the energy system funded under the [...]

G3-PLC: The communication protocol tailored to the new cyber-physical systems challenges

The cyber-physical systems industrials recommend the use of the G3-PLC technology as an answer to the new challenges it implies. Trialog, with its expertise in this technology and member of the G3-PLC Alliance, offers a wide range of tools and services adapted to the needs of the players in the cyber-physical ecosystem. The new [...]
