In 2015, a total of 18 partners have joined forces to start the European project STORY, which demonstrates new energy storage technologies and their benefits in distribution systems in eight different European countries.
STORY partners are operating demonstration sites in Slovenia, Belgium and Spain, with another site in the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland) going live soon. The residential sites in Belgium are now expanding to cover a whole neighborhood with a micro grid providing more grid stability, while the Slovenian site will bring a battery storage online.
Through BaseN's unprecedented, inherently scalable and mission critical Platform, measurement data from various installation sites is gathered and provided for all the project members in real-time. The collected data is displayed in an easily understandable, concise and relevant way - which enables the STORY team to successfully compare, analyse and demonstrate the value of the sites while individual partners also use the data for models feeding control back to the system.
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.
