How do you let 40 households deal with renewable energy in a smart way?

PowerMatching City

The successful PowerMatching City project started in 2007 in Hoogkerk, near Groningen. PowerMatching City is the sustainable energy neighbourhood of the future. Forty households are equipped with solar panels, innovative heating installations and intelligent domestic appliances. The total energy demand of the neighbourhood is continuously tuned to the sustainable supply. In co-creation with the residents, two energy services have been developed and tested. Extensive research has also been carried out into the participation of the residents, the possibility to harmonise supply and demand and the value of flexibility in households for the total energy chain. In 2013, the project was selected for the Sustania Top 100, the 100 most sustainable projects in the whole world. ICT is one of the founding partners of the project and responsible for setting up the IT infrastructure, reading the smart meters, controlling the equipment, acquiring, storing and processing the data, and the developing the tablet application with which the residents can gain an insight into their energy production and consumption, and operate their smart equipment. The consortium consists of: DNVGL, Gasunie, Enexis, Essent, ICT and TNO, and research partners: TUD, TUE and Hanzehogeschool Groningen. The project has been completed in April 2015.
