Artificial Intelligence for Next Generation Energy


AI is becoming increasingly important in the energy sector, which is under pressure to meet the growing demand for renewable energy. AI-based analytics for smart energy management can help ensure a better balance between supply and demand. In this context, the EU-funded I-NERGY project will work to evolve, scale up and demonstrate innovative AI as a service energy analytics applications and digital twin services. These will be validated along pilots that span over the full energy value chain, ranging from optimised management of grid and non-grid renewable energy systems assets to improved efficiency and reliability of electricity networks’ operation.

Awarded by the EU Innovation Radar with the title "Digital Twin for Distributed Energy Resources (DER) coordination"
