A One-Stop Shop to the Research on Smart Grid

Aalborg University invites you to a one-day Smart Grid workshop featuring talks both from academia and industry. The event takes place at Aalborg University on 4th of October 2012.

It is a Danish Government goal to move towards an electric power system that depends solely on renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy. This transition requires development of new methods for power balancing throughout all levels of the electrical grid. This is the motivation for the Smart Grid concept, where producers and consumers are tighter integrated with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The Smart Grid can be thought of as “Internet for energy”: a collection of advanced information, control, and communication technologies that enable the electric power system to handle large amounts of renewables.

The Danish Smart Grid vision has initiated a wide range of research in both industry and academia. At Aalborg University, Smart Grid research projects are currently taking place in the fields of

  • Electronic Systems,
  • Power Electronic Systems,
  • Development and Planning and 
  • Computer Science

These on-going Smart Grid research projects help shaping our future electric power system. In this one-day workshop, Smart Grid related presentations will be held from all of these areas of research at Aalborg University along with presentations from industry Smart Grid partners: DONG Energy, Grundfos, Kamstrup and Neogrid.
