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 the Flexible Power Application Infrastructure. Both technologies are complementary but can also function on their own. The PowerMatcher is a smart grid coordination mechanism. The Flexible Power Application Infrastructure, FPAI in short, is an operating system 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.
