A smart grid is an electricity network, where different energy sources, consumers as well storages are connected intelligently. The network management should bring the fluctuating supply of renewable energy in accordance with the current consumption of electricity ecologically and economically. In addition, there is a connection to the public electricity network.
On EUREF-Campus small wind turbines, solar panels, a power station and two big batteries were built as network buffers, in order to explore the integration of renewable energy and also electric mobiliy into the electricity network. With the support of federal government, the city of Berlin, the area Tempelhof-Schöneberg as well as other partners from economics and science built and connected the MSG as well as energy master display in InnoZ.
The aim is to reduce the purchase of electricity from the public network step by step. As a result, this can be relieved and the share of energies be increased. Here storages as buffer gain more and more importance. Regarding the intelligent charging or recuperation, the batteries of electric cars should be finally integrated. The provision of storage capacity of electric cars as energy suppliers may benefit vehicle operators.
