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: System Integrator, Independent Software Vendors, Edge Equipment Vendors and 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.
