Definition of a Smart Energy Aware architecture
Participant : Jean-Marie Bonnin [contact] .
In the past years, energy demand has increased and shifted especially towards electricity as the form of consuming energy. As the number of electric devices constantly grows and energy production must increasingly rely on renewable sources, this leads into noteworthy disparity between electricity production and consumption. Within the ITEA2 12004 Smart Energy Aware Systems (SEAS) project (see section 1), we proposed the "SEAS Reference Architecture Model" (S-RAM). This architecture relies on four distributed services that enable to interconnect any energy actors and give them the opportunity to provide new energy services. The benefits of S-RAM have been studied on a specific use case, which aims to provide a service for estimating local photovoltaic production. It particularly helps energy management systems better plan electric consumption. The main principles of this architecture have been published and we developed several profs of concept that have been demonstrated in the project consortium. Our partner continue to develop the components of the architecture that will be demonstrated in the final review of the project.
