Smart Energy – Main Page2024-03-28T10:37:26+01:00

As the proportion of distributed energy resources (DER) increases, and electrical vehicles are being deployed, the transmission and distribution electricity grids have to become smarter and more flexible, ensure reliability, and improve efficiency. Also, there is an opportunity for loads and generators to offer novel services to support the grid or local interests.

Therefore, a Smart Energy system is required to reach these targets, including not only a smart grid but also taking the opportunity for loads and generators to offer novel services supporting the system. Based on a convergence of energy grids and telecommunication networks, enabling a real-time monitoring and control of the energy system, the main system objectives include balancing production and consumption, maximizing DER integration (local or global), reducing energy bills, identifying and fixing grid issues and anticipating grid maintenance needs.

Based on its strong knowledge of smart metering and e-mobility, Trialog is working on smart energy systems since 2012 via several research and innovation projects but also industrial projects around grid observability, advanced grid control, flexibilities, local energy communities, energy storage, energy management, vehicle-to-grid, smart home, smart building, … and associated horizontal technologies such as semantic interoperability, internet of things, data spaces, digital twin, …

Trialog also supports the ecosystem by contributing to EU initiatives such as BRIDGE and ETIP SNET and international standardization committees.

Trialog’s main added value focuses on architecture, design, validation and deployment phases, offering tools and support on system architecture and modeling (incl. SGAM), smart grid standards, cyber-security, interoperability and system validation.
