On the 22nd and 23rd of March, the second annual workshop of the Dream Go project, "Real-time demand response and intelligent direct load control", is taking place in Salamanca. The reason for these annual meetings is to give opportunity to all participants to catch up on the progress of the project, the Instituto Politécnico Do Porto (Portugal), Universitaet Duisburgessen (Germany) and ISA Energy Efficiency (Portugal) Nebusens SL (Spain) and Discovergy (Germany) and, of course, our colleagues from the BISITE Research Group (University of Salamanca, Spain). This project has been in constant development since February 2015 and will be completed by January 2019.
Thanks to these meetings, project members can get informed on the progress of the different work packages and find out what their next steps will be. Working in such way will undoubtedly improve the final results of the project.
This project is of great importance and touches on key areas such as energy networks and artificial intelligence. It has been funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 call. MSCA-RISE-2014: Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange) (Reference: 641794).
The core of this project lies in the growing need for efficient and intelligent energy systems that increase revenue and create sustainability and efficiency in the energy system, the European framework is still far from achieving this. What Dream Go aims to do, is to create new products and services that, through smart technology, ensure energy networks will operate efficiently. The participants also work on the creation of electric batteries, which, assuming data production and costs, recover or store energy in other devices. The main goal of the project is to create a framework with methods and solutions that will make it easy to adopt these technologies in the European framework and that the applications that arose from Dream Go can be conducted in both private and public domains (private homes, etcetera).
We want to take this opportunity to thank the participants of the project for their effort and dedication, encouraging them to continue the hard work which will undoubtedly bring great success.
