Flexible and software based
infrastructures for smart grids

Which infrastructures are needed for cost efficient smart grid integration of energy consumers with controllable loads and prosumers with renewable generators? The challenge to answer this question was taken by an interna-tional consortium with participation of Fraunhofer IEE in the last three and a half years in a research- and demonstration project, which was funded by the European Union with 11.7 Mio. €.



The two branches of Fraunhofer IWES are to become independent

Since its founding in 2009, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology IWES has grown to almost 600 employees. As part of their strategic development and alignment, both divisions of the institute have developed largely independent profiles. The Executive Board and Senate of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have therefore decided to continue the branches of the institute as independent institutes as of January 2018: as IEE and IWES. For customers and industry partners, the sharpening of the profile will facilitate a clear allocation of activities.



A new smart grid laboratory for Brazil

An important technical step for a new smart grid laboratory at the Electrical Energy Research Center CEPEL in Brazil has been successfully designed by Cepel together with the German Fraunhofer Institutes IWES in Kassel and FOKUS in Berlin.
