Smart Energy project FUSE started


Finnish-German joint project FUSE will develop solutions for the Energy Revolution utilizing artificial intelligence

The success of the Energy Revolution depends largely on the digitalization of growingly complex power supply networks. As an example, the increase in renewable energy sources, which depend on the weather creates fluctuations in the poweroutput. To connect these grids more intelligently is the goal of the new collaborative project FUSE, directed by the German Research center for Artificial Intelligence. A Finnish-German consortium will develop information and communication technologies on the basis of artificial intelligence, to increase efficiency of the power grid and to ensure supply reliability. Therefore a self-organizing demand management system as well as technologies to control flexible grid loads will be developed and implemented and tested in a fitting infrastructure in Finland and Germany.

Among the partners of this project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, are Easy Smart Grid GmbH (Karlsruhe), Technische Universität Berlin, ALL4IP Technologies GmbH & Co. KG (Darmstadt), Jubic Oy (Vaasa), ABB Oy (Vaasa), University of Vaasa und Teknologian Tutkimuskeskus VTT Oy (Espoo). The funding period will end in  July 2021.
