Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
The pilot project for the 'Integration of renewable energies and e-mobility' (IRENE) aims to identify technical and business solutions to enable distribution network operators to feed power from fluctuating decentralized renewable energy sources into the grid.One fundamental part of the research project is a self-organizing energy automation system for which Siemens is implementing newly developed software. This software is designed to optimize the timing of power generation from the large number of photovoltaic, wind, hydroelectric and biogas systems connected to the Allgäu electricity grid, as well as power consumption patterns and the storage of energy generated from renewable sources.
