Balancing supply and demand in future energy systems

Dynamic pricing can be used to balance future energy grids which depend on renewable energy. CWI researcher Nicolas Höning developed several market mechanisms and pricing strategies which are useful for planning and balancing electricity supply and demand.

CWI researchers on Utility Week Amsterdam

Researchers from the Intelligent Systems group of Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam, and SENSE Lab of TU Berlin join forces on the European Utility Week, the leading knowledge and innovation event for the smart energy industry in Amsterdam, from 4 – 6 November 2014.

Towards a European Smart Energy System

In the European vision document “Towards a European Smart Energy System”, researchers Han La Poutré and Felix Claessen from the research group Intelligent Systems at the Centrum Wiskunde & Infor

Software agents arrange freight more efficiently

Traffic jams regularly bring Dutch highways to a halt. Freight is often a major cause of such bottlenecks. Interestingly enough almost one third of all trucks drive around empty. PhD student Valentin Robu of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), the national research center for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands, examined the efficiency in logistics and saw room for improvement through the use of intelligent software agents.

Intelligent systems for green developments

Windmills, biomass, solar energy, and storage are essential for green developments in energy supplies, but increase the demands on electricity networks. The SenterNovem project ‘Intelligent and Decentralized Management of Networks and Data’ (IdeaNeD) investigates optimal control for future networks.
