C/sells Lab Leimen
As part of the C/sells funding project, the project partners VIVAVIS AG, KEO GmbH, Fraunhofer IEE and Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall presented for the first time a practical solution to the currently planned extensions to §14a of the Energy Industry Act (EnWG), as well as to the amendment to §9 of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) from September 2020. In essence, it is about the interoperable end-to-end control of a property via a digital grid connection with a smart meter gateway (SMGW), a digital control box of the grid operator and a local energy management system (EMS) in the building.
The specialist for home energy management Peeeks integrates EEBUS, for plug&play ready connection and connectivity of smart energy devices in the building. Intelligent control of energy at home: Peeeks networks energy consumers and producers in the household and thus enables optimization of own consumption, intelligent charging management and integration into flexibility trading. With EEBUS, Peeeks’ Energy Management System (EMS) receives the standardized interface for communication with all energy-relevant device domains within the building and the grid. To begin with, Peeeks offers its customers full support of all EEBUS E-Mobility functionalities. Peeeks cooperates with KEO GmbH for the integration of EEBUS into their energy management solutions.
Power Plus Communication AG
Charging of electric cars needs to be coordinated for optimum grid integration. PPC and KEO have developed an interoperable solution for this. The partners have extended the range of functions of PPC’s CLS Gateway to include EEBUS. With this, it is already possible to coordinate charging stations via EEBUS.
EMH Metering integrates EEBUS into the CLS component of its Smart Meter Gateway to control smart buildings. The EEBUS concept of maximum power limitation at the grid connection point was successfully tested in a proof of concept and demonstrated at the E-World 2020, together with Robotron.
In a joint project, Vivavis and KEO are shaping standardization in the field of e-mobility. At the E-world 2020, both companies presented an implementation for controlling a charging station based on the EEBUS specification. This control box is built by IDS GmbH, one of the leading solution providers for network control and management for the Smart Grid.
One of the pioneers of innovative energy management solutions, Belgian cleantech company Smappee is integrating EEBUS to connect smart devices in buildings and to the grid.
The leading manufacturer of charging solutions for electric vehicles, EV Box, will use EEBUS for communication and KEO for software integration.
At the Metering Days 2019, Theben, KEO and gridX jointly presented the use case “Grid Interaction”. All three companies are members of the EEBUS initiative. The power limitation of the grid operator is transmitted to the local energy management system (EMS). The EMS manages the power of the connected loads, e.g. the electric car accordingly.
