The energy transition calls for smart meters to support microgrids. Apart from monitoring home appliances’ power cycles, they will need to gather data about other households so as to predict/plan local and microgrid consumption/production. These novel smart meters (Grid Edge Devices: GED), will need to be managed in a collaborative fashion. We want to develop GEDs enhanced with collaborative AI algorithms which are the foundation to build context-aware and self-adaptive energy applications. In essence, we propose to develop a digitaL frAmework for SmArt Grid and reNewable Energies (LASAGNE) and involve four stakeholders:

  1. System Integrator,
  2. Independent Software Vendors,
  3. Edge Equipment Vendors and,
  4. Need-Owners.

LASAGNE will be empowered by marketplace features allowing stakeholders to implement their financial/technical interactions. To handle the energy transition in an acceptable way, we will consider both social and business perspectives in the development of our GED-based system.

LASAGNE is funded by the ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems and Mission Innovation through the Joint Call 2020. As such, this project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 883973.
