WP3 - Energy Management Iot Solutions and Platform
WP coordinated by
Bosch Security Systems

The trend towards full electrification of the economy and incremental migration to renewable energy sources poses technical and technological challenges and introduces new uncertainty factors associated with energy availability, forcing a paradigm shift associated with management mechanisms and associated technologies. The approach to this challenge focuses on the development of new disruptive solutions/products, aimed at intelligent availability management, in an approach sustained by an advanced Iot paradigm, multiplier of the competitive effect generated.
The "INERGY" Initiative aims to create innovative dynamics for domestic spaces that will improve their energy efficiency and ensure operation in an intelligent logic. Sustainable energy management support solutions are proposed, including: (1) electrical vehicle connection equipment with vehicle load capacity, but also and primarily, with discharge capacity for a wide variety of common applications, such as power distribution network support or distribution network replacement. This solution comprises the modelling and provision of grid regulation and power quality services, and energy peak regulation and cutting services (Peak Shaving) and intelligent vehicle charging equipment, capable of acting differently according to quantity of available energy, type of available energy, charging time and availability of the electric vehicle for the provision of network services or not. (2) integrated system for managing energy input to construction through frames, including energy capture, transformation and storage systems through the integration of photovoltaic cells. (3) digital platform for managing the energy operation in buildings (at an individual level and in the context of Energy Communities), ensuring interoperability between systems (including those resulting from this WP). It aims to efficiently control the available power in the ecosystem and connectivity to storage systems and to renewable energy self-production systems, as well as integrated Sensorization and monitoring systems in the residential ecosystem, which will allow the adjustment of energy consumption profiles according to the needs and habits of the user.
The WP also proposes the design, development and industrialization of ultra-compact, mobile electronic equipment for domestic (and outdoor) applications using advanced technologies such as laser and ultrasonic welding, "Optical Bonding" necessary for future generations of compact, connected and advanced electronic devices. These equipment have applicability as heat pump control devices or water heaters (WP1/WP2).

PPS4 Ultra-compact electronics

Development of new generations of ultra-compact electronic equipment, developed from innovative processes and new technologies, directed to the Domotics market, wearables and/or mobile Devices. As part of the Agenda, the aim is to provide new mobile, electronic and ultra-compact equipment for domestic applications (with potential scalability for outdoor environments) using advanced technologies such as electronic board with high component integration (from SMD components to microcontrollers and displays), laser and ultrasonic welding or "Optical Bonding" necessary for future generations of compact, connected and advanced electronic devices. As an example of possible products to be created based on this technology, we can imagine advanced products such as temperature controllers (for example similar to the Nest temperature controller), or advanced "Headunit" controllers for outdoor use). Analytical tools developed in other projects, namely Augmanity, will be used to define the lines of development.


PPS iNERGY&iPOWER aims to provide buildings with intelligent systems capable of managing the energy needs of the future, via a combination of high-performance solutions and economic rationality. In this context, it is proposed in this PPS the materialization (in SaaS context) of a new digital platform for managing the energy operation in buildings (at an individual level and in the context of Energy Communities). This platform is accompanied by the development of new sustainable solutions, with high integration with user routines, namely: (1) bi-directional charger; (2) Hybrid sealing solution for integration into different household appliances (with immediate applicability to smart window). Both developments aim at integration into domotic solutions.
