To promote the Open Smart Grid Platform within the energy and sustainability field, part of the Open Smart Grid Platform will be present at the Innovative Turth IX in Nijmegen. This Dutch conference covers the field of innovation, sustainable ICT and sustainable Energy. The theme of this year is “The Enabler for Sustainability & Innovation”.
The Open Smart Grid Platform fits in this theme due to the open source nature and use-cases. Open source allows others to innovate on top of existing open source software without (vendor) barriers. The existing Open Smart Grid platform use-cases could support a sustainable energy landscape. Load management helps to integrate renewable energy in the grid by controlling the load when needed. The smart metering domain supports insight in energy consumption and production and can enable flexible tariffs for example.
The Innovative Turth IX conference takes place 19th of June 2017 and is part of sustainable energy week . More information and how to register can be found on their (Dutch) website: https://aninnovativetruth.nl/
