Dear Network Member

Everything has been going with a swing since the network’s new website – – was launched at the beginning of the new year. The release of the new digital face of the network was accompanied by the first newsletter. Subsequently, we were happy to experience a highly increased interest for the network – both in terms of inquiries about the network in itself as well as the number of newsletter recipients.
The synergies are starting to bloom as we have engaged in a collaboration to conduct the 11th Danish Smart Grid Research Network meeting, which will be centred around active and automated consumer loads in grid operations. This will take place on March 25 in the Navitas building in Aarhus. You can read more about it on the website by clicking here.
In the beginning of February, we hosted an inspiring meeting on possible preliminary projects. The deadline for applications for the pool is April 7, as they are to be discussed at the steering committee meeting on April 16. We are looking forward to receiving your innovative ideas.

Best regards,

Thomas Drivsholm
Network Manager

Researchers Find Storage Capacity in New Solar Cells

In a joined cooperation with University of Porto, Aarhus University has developed a new type of technology for charging flow batteries with solar power. The solar cell converts light into chemical energy and stores it in tanks containing liquids. This invention has resulted in a grant of 8 million DKK (about 1.2 million USD), which is to be used for developing and improving the technology.

Tesla Wants to Build a Battery for Your House

In about six months, Tesla Motors Inc. will initiate the production of an energy-storage battery for residencial use. The lithium-ion battery technology collaborates with solar panels to prevent its users from being disrupted by going "off-grid". Furthermore, the technology can decrease utility fees significantly and will even allow some homeowners to avoid buying electricity from utilities.

Bosch and Vattenfall to Storage Surplus Power in Used BMW Batteries

Bosch og Vattenfall have joined forces to establish an energy storage system that will be able to power 30 households of four with electricity for a week.
The system is an experiment that will explore options for turning used batteries from electric vehicles into a stable power grid, while gaining insights about their aging behaviour, storage capacity, and applicability.
