Review: FINESCE Open Day Trial Site Aachen

12.6.2014, Aachen, Germany

The FINESCE Open Day in Aachen presented the trial site in Aachen, the Smart Factory. The Open Day was hosted by FIR e.V. at RWTH Aachen and brought together stakeholders from the ICT and energy sector to get informed about the third phase of the European innovation programme "Future Internet Public Private Partnership”(FI-PPP) and about the interim results of the FINESCE project.

FINESCE is proving the practicability of Future Internet technologies in the energy area at seven trial sites across Europe dealing with real end-users. The participants of the open day received first-hand information on business opportunities for SMEs and on how they can become part of the EC’s funding scheme of 80 million euros.

Fiona Williams presented the scope of the FINESCE project and the current status of its trial sites. Peter Fatelnig from the European Commission depicted the funding opportunities of the 3rd phase of the FI-PPP programme and Adrián Ferrero gave insights into the phase 3 project INCENSe (Internet CleantechEnablers Spark). FI-WARE was presented by Luigi Briguglio from the view of a user of the offered services. Before the guided tour through the Smart Factory, the winning teams of the Student Case Competition, organized by FIR e.V. at RWTH Aachen and Ericsson, were honored and presented their business cases for Future Internet applications.

The FINESCE trial sites are covering key elements of the future energy system. The trial site in Aachen combines a cross border Virtual Power Plant (VPP), based on renewable energy sources (RES) with the Demand-Side Management (DSM) of an intelligent scale factory. The focus of the trial site is balancing the energy between the smart factory and the virtual power plant in a business to business (B2B) electricity eco-system. At the open day, the Virtual Power Plant was demonstrated by a model of an energy landscape, where the user was able to manage the grid.

The next FINESCE Open Day will take place in Portlaoise, Ireland, on 22nd of September.
