Challenge / Goal

  • Simplifying the integration of renewable energies
  • Increasing the resilience of the generation and distribution system
  • Making demand more flexible
  • Testing business models


  • Integration of a large number of decentralized systems and devices for the automated provision of data
  • Predicting energy flows and predictive optimization using AI (e.g. reinforcement learning)
  • Dynamization of user behaviour and activation of citizens using IoT devices and smartphones
  • Simulation of interactive business models and products in real laboratories and test environments

Citizen participation

  • Activating citizens for the energy transition via smartphone and IoT devices
  • Connecting new customers through the integration of e-mobility services
  • Gamification and tangible energy management by collecting points for grid-friendly behavior.

A good example of activating users via a virtual power plant is the internal test run of the "Smart Socket" project, the first part of the multi-stage LeipzigZERO program, with which Leipziger Stadtwerke aims to develop forward-looking energy awareness together with tenants in the long term. The dashboard visualizes the current power consumption of the connected smart plugs, which is continuously recorded. At the same time, the current utilization of the electricity grids is also displayed. Together, this data provides a good guide as it shows when it makes sense to switch off smart plugs. This can then be initiated from the dashboard: Either directly or by instructing the user via a push message.
