Hafenstrom Participates in Project Application Led by AIOTI

Hafenstrom has recently participated in a project application led by the Alliance for IoT and Edge Computing Innovation (AIOTI). The project, titled SEAMLESS USER-ORIENTED SEMANTIC INTEROPERABLE SMART GRID-READY BUILDINGS (SUIT), aims to develop innovative solutions for integrating buildings with smart grids to enhance energy efficiency and sustainability.

The SUIT project focuses on developing and demonstrating solutions that enable buildings to utilise available distributed energy storage systems (DESS) and deferrable loads to contribute to grid robustness while maintaining user comfort. The project builds on previous research results and uses modern tools to improve the integration between buildings, energy carriers, and other actors in the energy sector.

Hafenstrom’s role in the project includes the development and implementation of algorithms that maximise the potential for grid relief services by using building energy flexibility. This involves the integration of advanced forecasting technology and optimisation algorithms to ensure user comfort while optimising energy consumption.

The project covers several key areas, including the development of interoperability standards for data exchange between buildings and energy grids, improvement of energy consumption optimisation, and demonstration of economic and societal benefits through pilot projects in five different European countries. This will provide insights into how various market conditions affect the implementation of the new technologies.

Hafenstrom views participation in the SUIT project as a unique opportunity to contribute to the future of energy solutions. By being part of this international collaboration, the company can benefit from new knowledge and technology that will strengthen their position within smart energy solutions and sustainable development.

Hafenstrom looks forward to the results of the SUIT project and the opportunities that may arise from this work. The company hopes that the project application will be approved so they can help realise innovative solutions that will have a significant positive impact on the energy industry and society as a whole
