Building decentralised renewable energy devices, such as the QR5 turbine, is only the first step in solving society’s need for sustainable energy. Intelligent integration of local energy “neighbourhoods” (consisting of renewable energy sources and energy using systems) together with the electrical grid has many potential benefits which can increase the value of the overall system. In the longer term, such intelligent integration might even become mandatory to accommodate significantly higher levels of decentralised energy generation. This talk presents an introduction to the major issues and problems driving this work as well as some of the potential solutions being explored by Quiet Revolution together with its partners in the European SmartCoDe research project.
