Electricity infrastructures today are facing major challenges. Electricity use is ever-growing. More and more electricity is generated by intermittent sources: at a large-scale by off-shore wind; at a small scale by high numbers of distributed generation. This asks for a smarter grid. The PowerMatcherSuite is the answer.
The Suite comprises two disruptive open source technologies; the PowerMatcher and EF-Pi. Both technologies are complementary but can also function on their own. The PowerMatcher is a transactive energy smart grid coordination mechanism. The Energy Flexibility Platform & Interface, EF-Pi in short, is a platform which enables appliances, the smart grid and smart services to communicate with each other.
The Suite was developed in cooperation with industry and research partners, it is maintained and promoted by the Flexiblepower Alliance Network.
