Nanogrids: the Energrid Research Project

ENERGRID’S NANOGRIDS – This Research project aims to develop a prototype of a distributed nanogrids system including energy production and storage components. The developped modular system will be scalable so that it can be applied both in industrial and residential buildings.

This approach, which will be studied on a global scale, will allow Wallonia reduce its energy dependency and prevent from the risk of energy supply shortage in case of black-out.

Energrid’s Nanogrids are fighting energy supply shortage

The project aims to develop an energy cloud solution, namely the means of production and storage distributed geographically and independent from classical centralized productions.

What is a nanogrid?

A connectable nanogrid controller is able to manage the means of production, the means of storage and connections to electrical networks. It is designed to manage optimally the flow between components connected to it, namely electrical networks, storage and production components.

The objective is an autonomous energy management block

In this way, the system is an entity which constitutes an autonomous energy management block that is connectable to a larger network and, in particular to other autonomous blocks. It is the base of a cloud energy system ; that integrates all the components necessary to a stable and distributed supply and whose resources (production and storage ) can be shared through a global platform that handles all flow controllers.

Energrid Towards to the peer-to-peer network…

The Energrid Project is part of the citizens’ will to be increasingly independent of the public grid. It technically paves the way for prosumers -both producers and consumers- to exchange their electric energy through a peer-to-peer network.
