Energy supply in Germany and throughout Europe is facing major challenges: The rapid expansion of renewable energies is only one aspect that is receiving attention in this transformation of energy systems. Energy efficiency, as well as topics from the fields of electromobility, load flow analysis, forecasting, virtual power plants and energy storage are becoming more and more important. In over 20 years, Fraunhofer IOSB-AST has acquired extensive knowledge in these areas through numerous projects.
The energy management solution EMS-EDM PROPHET® is already represented in the German and Turkish energy market by strong partners like Compello GmbH and BTC AG. Its focus here is on energy and energy data management. In 2013, EMS-EDM PROPHET® was certified by TÜV Süd in the course of a project, together with Compello GmbH, for Dow Olefinverbund GmbH.
In energy research, Fraunhofer IOSB-AST deals with future-oriented topics in cooperation with partners from industry, with public funding bodies and also with other research institutions. Topics such as demand response as well as demand side management and energy storage are considered here. Among other things, wind power forecasting technologies are developed for the grid integration of renewable energies.
