The aim of the research project MeRegio is to meet the claim for more efficient decentralized energy systems by integrating advanced information and communication technologies (ICT) into all stages of the energy supply chain. Several marketplaces — in particular for power and for ancillary services — which are coupled to the technical energy infrastructure through a powerful and lawful ICT infrastructure should serve as a basis for an efficient and transparent coordination of energy supply, energy demand, and services. The developed concepts will be both validated by simulations and tested within a model region.


Ziel des Forschungsvorhabens MeRegio ist es, den Forderungen nach effizienteren dezentralisierten Energiesystemen durch die Integration fortschrittlichster Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien zu begegnen. Zur transparenten Koordination von Energieangebot, Energienachfrage und Dienstleistungen sollen mehrere Marktplätze dienen, u. a. für Wirkleistung und Systemdienstleistungen, welche an die technische Energie-Infrastruktur über eine leistungsfähige, rechtskonforme Informations- und Kommunikationsinfrastruktur angekoppelt sind. Die entwickelten Konzepte sollen sowohl durch Simulationen validiert als auch in einem Modellversuch regional erprobt werden.

Keywords: Simulation and Modelling; Smart Grid; MeRegio
