STORY's demo site in the residential area of Suha, Slovenia, had the honor of welcoming the presidents of Finland and Slovenia, Mr. Sauli Niinistö and Mr. Borut Pahor, as part of the official visit of the Finnish President to Slovenia. STORY is an outstanding example of the co-operation in Europe. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 646426.
BaseN plays a key role in enabling the STORY project by monitoring the battery and solar panel-based renewal energy production in Slovenia, providing key performance indicators for Elektro Gorenjska, one of the biggest electrical power distribution companies in Slovenia.
STORY partners are operating eight demonstration sites in the following five countries; Spain, Germany, Slovenia, Belgium and the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland).BaseN gathers their measurement data from various installation sites and acts as a data aggregator. Every site provides data from different sensors with differing frequencies.
BaseN Platform commensurates all the data streams to standard time series format. The collected data is displayed in an easily understandable, concise and relevant way - real time and historically, which enables the STORY team to successfully analyze and demonstrate the value of the projects.
With energy companies striving to offer increasingly sustainable, smart and safe living options to residents, BaseN paves the way for them to roll out sophisticated energy management systems cost efficiently. BaseN has been serving international manufacturing giants and major ICT companies for the past 15 years in order to turn them into Industrial Internet forerunners. The BaseN Platform brings the required scalability to manage the entire lifecycle of billions of Things. It is the perfect foundation for a wide range of different Industrial Internet and Internet of Things (IoT) services and applications, e.g. in smart buildings and smart factories.
STORY is a European project demonstrating new energy storage technologies and their benefits in distribution systems, involving 18 Partner Institutions in 8 different European countries.
