Background & Policy context



Brandenburg is already in a position to generate more renewable energy than the land needs. Albeit, the production of renewable energy is subject to considerable fluctuations. Strong winds and low energy consumption can result in wind turbines having to be shut down in order to avoid overloading the grids. The comprehensive smart grid developed in the IPIN project is to intelligently link projects in Berlin and Brandenburg as both producer and consumer of renewable energy. The aim is to analyse the extent to which electromobility can make a meaningful contribution to grid management and determine current and future needs for storage technologies. The supra-regional smart grid is to be one of the components contributing to being able to avoid the necessity to throttle or shut-down the volatile feed-in of renewable energy in the future.


Within the context of the project, the activities of a number of participating showcase projects will be accompanied, linked and evaluated in order to develop a comprehensive and supra-regional smart grid concept while taking into consideration electromobility applications. Connection to a central data platform from the showcase Berlin-Brandenburg is to enable the linkage of different data and results. The intelligent local and regional interplay of production, grid management, storage, and consumption with the inclusion of electromobility will be visualised in a central showroom in Berlin. Thereby, a simulation of (extreme) scenarios will make it possible to derive conclusions with respect to the need for storage technologies. The solutions and findings will be evaluated against the background of supply security and economic feasibility and are transferable to other regions of Germany and to the world at large.
