About the Project

A future power system almost entirely running on low carbon energy sources needs significant level of flexibility. Energy storage will play a key role in providing such a required flexibility, in particular, the domestic energy storage devices and electric vehicles will offer the greatest potential. This Energy-USB project aims to address one of the fundamental challenges to integrate a range of energy storage devices at the demand side, namely the connectivity and interpretability of energy storage devices to support plug-play functionality for convenient, effective, and efficient aggregation of energy storage devices to provide a range of network services, hence to improve the overall flexibility of the energy network and support cost effective transition to low carbon society. A plug-and-play framework and associated software and hardware devices for integrating a range of energy storage systems in Smart Grid Applications will be developed in the project.
