Project SENSIBLE will explore the integration of small scale, widely available technologies into local power grids.

 Project SENSIBLE will:
  • develop and demonstrate power electronic technologies that enable the full set of storage functions
  • develop measures and methods for safe storage integration into buildings and power networks
  • develop and demonstrate advanced ICT tools for the control and management of distribution networks
  • develop and demonstrate power and energy management in buildings and local communities 
  • develop and demonstrate locally-focussed energy market services
  • define specifications enabling new distributed energy storage products, markets and businesses
  • conduct life cycle analyses (LCA) and assess the socio-economic impact of small-scale storage integrated in buildings, as well as communities and distribution networks
