Major parts of society are currently undergoing comprehensive digitalization. But digitalization has not yet had a large impact on our buildings, especially those of an earlier date. Researchers from the Department of Computer Science collaborate in a number of projects with companies and colleagues from Europe to develop new technologies and standards that will turn existing buildings increasingly “energy smart”.
The researchers also develop concepts and solutions that enable private consumers and companies to consume energy in a more flexible manner thus reducing the overall energy consumption and furthering a more efficient use of renewable energy sources.
The researchers from the Department of Computer Science primarily work with new solutions and standards within the large projects domOS, FED (Flexible Energy Denmark), FEVER and GOFLEX. Among the many activities in these projects are:
- A common platform enabling the interoperability and intelligent control of different devices and sensors in our homes (domOS).
- The first Danish data lake containing energy data supporting a more efficient use of the flexibility in the power grid FED).
- A platform supporting the trading of flexibility in the existing electricity markets (FEVER).
- A concept (FlexOffer) ensuring a better match between consumption and production of renewable energy (GOFLEX).
- In the Not-So-Distant Future, Buildings Will be Energy Smart (domOS)
- Brug din el fleksibelt og bidrag til den grønne omstilling (GOFLEX and FEVER)
- Danmarks første datasø fyldt med energidata er en realitet (FED)
