Easy Smart Grid revolutionizes renewable energy integration with innovative smart grid technology that optimizes electricity distribution and consumption.


Renewable generation imports energy into the grid, whereas energy is exported from the grid to heat pumps and EVs. Matching supply and demand in time therefore improves the situation: Required grid capacity can be reduced if some load is shifted to times of high renewable generation, away from times of high consumption, and import into the grid (flexible generation, battery discharge, V2G) is shifted to times of high consumption.

Substantial potential exists for such time shifting which can be further increased by suitable design (e.g. providing thermal storage) or operation (e.g. charging EVs where they park for longer time), leading to very low-cost flexibility without loss of comfort. Flexibility activation by dynamic tariffs and automated response allows to mobilize and reward flexibility in an efficient way.

Easy Smart Grid has developed an innovative technology to implement this: Its real-time operation avoids stability challenges, allows to fairly and transparently reward the value provided, and allows a resilient, scalable, and easy to migrate implementation.
