E-Energy: Das "Internet der Energien"

Aus einem E-Energy-Technologiewettbewerb gingen sechs Modellprojekte als Sieger hervor. Sie alle verfolgen einen integralen Systemansatz, der alle energierelevanten Wirtschaftsaktivitäten sowohl auf der Markt- als auch auf der technischen Betriebsebene einschließt. Mit Blick auf die große Bedeutung von E-Energy für den Ausbau der erneuerbaren Energien und die Erhöhung der Energieeffizienz erfolgt die Förderung der Modellprojekte in einer ressortübergreifenden Partnerschaft des BMWi mit dem Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit (BMU). Das BMWi stellt für vier Modellregionen bis zu 40 Mio. Euro bereit und das BMU übernimmt die Förderung von zwei weiteren Modellregionen mit bis zu 20 Mio. Euro. Damit werden zusammen mit den Eigenmitteln der beteiligten Unternehmen insgesamt etwa 140 Mio. Euro für den Aufbau der sechs E-Energy-Modellregionen mobilisiert. Alle Projekte sollen im vierten Quartal 2008 gestartet werden. Die ausgewählten Modellregionen sollen bis 2012 ihre erfolgversprechenden Vorschläge bis zur Marktreife entwickeln und ihre Marktfähigkeit im Alltag testen.

Please note that calls for submission of project proposals are closed

NRP II is the National programme for the research and development.

The main focus of the program is the research and technological development of software tools and applications enabling more efficient, faster and more reliably connect various entities to the level of  individuals. This will be enabled through optimized infrastructure and tools assurance two-way interactive mobile communications, while the use of information resources andwide application of knowledge databases.
It is therefore a technical solution to the intensive information networked society.
Research activities will focus on research on new platforms with a high degree of interoperability (connectivity), capable of massive parallel use (audiovisual
platforms and open platforms for various types application tasks). This will be a successful component interconnect solutions into larger units.
In response to the above infrastructure will be developed intelligent
decision-making, management and other modules based on the knowledge and intensively searching relevant data processing and often massive datasets.

The third research sub programme of the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic (MoE) addresses the single issue:
SP3g - Environmental Technologies, rational
energy use and renewable energy sources (RES).

The sub programme objectives are:
- To achieve better use properties of renewable energy sources (RES) with special attention to energy use of biodegradable waste and new structures of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells.
- Develop effective energy storage systems, with special attention
alternative technologies for hydrogen production based on renewable energy sources.
- Create better conditions for achieving energy savings, with special attention
wider application of RES for renovations and new construction of buildings.

The sub programme wins: 
- Improving the position of RES in competition with conventional sources.
- Increased production of biogas while processing difficult to recoverable
organic waste.
- Increased functionality of silicon structures in photovoltaic articles.
- Facilitating the integration of RES in the existing system with conventional energy
resources.
- Organic production of hydrogen.
- Creating better conditions for achieving energy savings and wider application of RES
for renovations and new construction of buildings.

Green IT is the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using and disposing IT related hardware products in an efficient sustainable way with minimal or even no impact on the environment.

Green Software Engineering is the attempt to apply these "green" principles known from hardware products also on software products, software development processes and their underlying software process models.

The first main goal of the project is to to design a conceptual reference model supporting IT professionals and software users in the sustainable development and usage of software. The second main goal is to develop a software toolbox called "Sustainable Software Support Center" (S3C) that assists IT professionals in realizing systainable, resource-friendly software products.

The aim of the project is a design of a modular intelligent control system for energetic networks of urban agglomerations and the implementation of its basic parts. The developed system enables continuous control of heat or electric distribution in a urban agglomeration with respect to climatic conditions and operational states of particular energetic sources. The project results will ensure an increased efficiency in energetic system operations with minimization of additional demands put on operators.The final outputs are obtained through principles of intelligent control theory.

The Municipality of Laives (Italy) aimed at assessing the current status of power usage in public buildings and in branches of its lighting network, evaluating so far the potentiality for improvement of power efficiency.
To this goal it performed a study on the power usage of 26 public buildings and municipal lighting network. The project makes available this study on the Web; through an interactive query interface and a simple mapping representation, it allows decision makers to adopt mitigation actions and to citizens to query and view power data on public buildings, thus fostering investments in new power sources.
