Management of the Energy Revolution

The group Green by IT of the department CC HPC is all about the management of the energy revolution. Its goal is the improvement and organisation of the production of renewable energies.

Green by IT

Innovative Use of Renewable Energies

The Green by IT is engaged in the reseach and development of innovative technology concepts for the use of alternative energies.

Our core competencies

  • Technical simulation and optimization
  • Management of decentralized systems
  • Forecasting and controls
  • Storage
  • Blockchain in the energy sector
  • IT security for critical infrastructure

The current research efforts address various areas, from demand-side management and forecasting services to energy storage. The following provides a brief overview of the projects:




The city of Speyer aims for 100% regenerative self-supply. GreenPowerGrid supports this plan with a combination of information technology and electro-chemical energy storage.




In this research project develops and evaluates the coordination mechanisms and the technological platform for the energy cooperative, to achieve cost efficiency of maximum autarky by shared exploitation of storage and other flexible resources.



The mySmartGrid project is developing smart metering, regulation, and control systems to adapt energy demand to energy production.



Now you can improve your own room climate and have fun doing it! A project for the energy management of rental housing with open source smart meters (EMOS) makes it possible.



myPowerGrid delivers a centralized, easy-to-use management infrastructure for an aggregated distributed energy storage transparently serving the interests of both corporate and private stakeholders.



PVCAST is a project that develops a forecasting service that generates the seven day forecast for the production of a photovoltaic plant.
