A new project in SGLab ''Smart Building - Smart Grid - Smart City" (3Smart) started on the 1st of January 2017. The main goal of the project is to provide a technological and legislative setup for cross-spanning energy management of buildings, energy grids and major city infrastructures in the Danube region. This includes the development of a modular platform for coordinated building and distribution grid energy management. The developed platform will be installed on 5 pilot locations in 5 countries (Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina) and comprehensive cost-benefit analysis will be performed to verify the platform’s performance. Our faculty is the Lead Partner on the project and in its execution participate Laboratory for Renewable Energy Systems (focussed on the buildings side) and Smart Grid Laboratory (focussed on the grid side).
The project partners are: Hrvatska elektroprivreda d.d., E3 ENERGETIKA, EKOLOGIJA, EKONOMIJA d.o.o., Municipality Idrija, Elektro Primorska d.d., European Centre for Renewable Energy Güssing Ltd., Municipality of Strem, Energy Güssing Ltd., University of Debrecen, E.ON Tiszántúli Áramhálózati Zrt., University of Belgrade Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, JP Elektroprivreda Hrvatske Zajednice Herceg Bosne, University of Mostar Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computing.
