Virtual energy demand/supply control technology

Achieving local production for local consumption by fusing information distribution and energy NWs

Current research

Virtual energy demand/supply control is a new technology for energy distribution that combines information distribution and energy NWs.

We aim to realize local production for local consumption by maximizing the use of renewable energy and using the energy wisely.

The amount of power generated, which fluctuates due to factors such as weather, is balanced by integrated autonomous control. This control will be achieved by combining demand forecasting, performed through a virtual space (information NW space), and energy storage.

By further promoting the spread of renewable energy and effectively distributing it across regions, we will contribute to the creation of cities with high environmental values.
