Research & Development
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
DESI aims at introducing load-adaptive mode into Telco network operation. In utility lingo, this turns a Telco network into a large consumer with demand-response capabilities. Furthermore, the UPS systems integrated into the network contain considerable energy storage capacity which is rendered accessible to Smart Grid use cases. A unified control framework as it is developed within DESI provides the communication infrastructure to impose complex optimization algorithms onto load and storage management.
