Welcome to

aces project

The Adaptive Control of Energy Storage (ACES) project develops and demonstrates adaptive optimisation of battery energy storage services, using Artificial Intelligence algorithms.

Combining AI with advanced battery health and power quality  monitoring, new business models and innovative billing solutions, the ACES project aims to trigger wide-scale deployment in power grids, a critical success factor for the renewable energy transition. 

Power-to-Gas Demo

Hydrogen production with 150 kWh/50 kW batteries - Vänerenergi

Small-scale Demos

Micro-grid test lab with solar PV and E-vehicle charging - Glava Energy Center

Large-scale Demo

Large demos and lab tests 500kWh - Fraunhofer IFF

Small-scale Lab Tests
