Asseco will receive funding for R&D activities
Asseco will receive over PLN 2.7 million in grants from the National Research and Development Center (NCBiR) for the development of the Asseco Demand Side Management system. The funds for the implementation of the R&D project will be provided from the Intelligent Development Operational Program for 2014-2020. 51 applications have been submitted to the competition, out of which 24 best projects have been selected for funding.
The project, developed by the Energy and Gas Engineering Division and the EU Project Office, concerns research into the power control of electricity consuming devices using the Internet-of-Things technology and the development of methods to influence the power consumption of electricity consumers.
The main feature of the Asseco Demand Side Management system will be the ability to regulate the demand for electricity not by switching off the equipment of electricity consumers, but by "taking over" the control over them and by flexibly reducing their power usage.
This will increase the safety of the electrical power equipment system and will prevent the occurrence of voltage drop in the distribution network during periods of increased electricity demand, for example due to prolonged heat.
The total value of the project will amount to PLN 6,671,821.86.
