SMART integration of electricity grid, microgrid and data centers

The number of data centers and energy use is growing due to the increasing need for data processing. Methods are needed to make data centers and microgrids with renewable energy more flexible and optimized.

The number of datacenters and energy use is growing due to the growing need for data processing. Methods are needed to make datacenters and microgrids with renewable energy more flexible and optimized.

In this project, we want to study how subscriptions and tariffs affect the operation of an AI-controlled micro-grid consisting of solar cells, batteries and a datacenter.

We also want to optimize datacenter with new strategies for controlling power, load and cooling based on knowledge of power- and micro-grids and to develop self-optimizing solutions.

Finally, we will develop smart tariffs using AI to benefit datacenter, micro- and power-grid owners. With better intergration, the utilization of the grid can be increased.

The project supports datacenters, power- and micro-grids with methods to transform the energy system. With energy and data science competencies at the RISE ICE group, interdisciplinary collaboration is promoted. and solutions for the industry are demonstrated.
