Artificial intelligence to control the power grid in Riedholz

  GridSense learns user behaviour with artificial intelligence. GridSense learns user behaviour with artificial intelligence. Together with the Canton of Solothurn, the four companies Adaptricity, AEK, Alpiq, and Landis+Gyr are investigating how the energy flow in a power distribution grid can be optimised and controlled through artificial intelligence in the town of Riedholz. The findings will minimise investments in costly grid expansion and decrease electricity costs. The SoloGrid project is being promoted by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy as a lighthouse project, and supported financially by the Canton of Solothurn. Power distribution grid operators are confronted with great challenges because the number of decentralised energy generation systems, such as photovoltaic, has grown strongly through the subsidisation of new renewable energies. The trend toward renewable energies will continue, and in…
