Instrumented Interconnecteds Intelligent

While it seems everyone is focused on Copenhagen starting next week, we thought it was a good time to shed some light on a real-life project underway to use renewable wind energy to power electric vehicles. On the small Danish island of Bornholm, a coalition of government, academia and industry are working on an innovative pilot program – the EDISON Project — that could provide some unique technical insights to help address the challenges of combining renewable energy with EVs.

[Side note: for more on our thoughts about electric vehicles, see this prior post on The Battery 500 project and this information about EVs on ibm.com]

Copenhagen utility DONG Energy is working with regional energy company of Oestkraft, the Technical University of Denmark, Siemens, Eurisco and the Danish Energy Association, and IBM to develop the system. To the extent allowed by consumer preferences, electric vehicles using the system will be charged when wind is generating excess power. Conversely, the vehicle charging will be slowed or delayed when the wind stops and energy production is diminished.

Edison ProjectThe goal is to use this small pilot of only about 15 electric vehicles to develop a model for deploying roughly 200,000 wind-powered EVs nationwide by 2020.

Denmark is already a leader in wind power – it produces more than 20 percent of the country’s electric power, with a goal to double it. And roughly half the wind turbines produced worldwide come from Danish manufacturers. The EDISON Project will create a model for letting eco-minded consumers charge their cars with renewable energy while allowing utilities to better absorb and manage wind-generated power.

And Bornholm provides a perfect environment for testing the wind power/electric vehicle project. As an island, its electric power grid is self-contained and isolated, making it easier to manage the project and measure the results.

Developing this project requires more than simply delivering a fleet of electric vehicles to the island and plugging them in. Public and personal charging stations must be installed and integrated into the local grid, and a variety of technologies must be integrated and evaluated.

The first step of the consortium is to develop smart technologies to be implemented on Bornholm. The island has 40,000 inhabitants and an energy infrastructure characterized by a large proportion of wind energy. Creating a test bed on the island will allow researchers to study how the energy system functions as the number of electric vehicles increases. The studies will be simulation-based and will not impact security of supply on the island.

Windmills and TeslaWithin the project, researchers from IBM Denmark and from IBM Research – Zurich will develop specialized analytics software to synchronize the charging of the electric vehicles with the availability of wind power in the grid. This includes tasks like governing when and where the EVs can recharge, based on available power and peak demand, and how to bill drivers when they use public recharging stations.

The technology must also address complexities such as balancing load on the grid, eventually allowing the electrical distribution system to use the EVs as supplementary power storage that can contribute electricity back to the grid as needed.

IBM has also contributed a Bladecenter server to the Technical University of Denmark that will be used for large-scale real-time simulations of the energy system and the impact of electric vehicles.

System design for the pilot project began this year, with the first test EVs slated for delivery before year-end. System test and evaluation will proceed in 2010, with a full rollout of EVs and charging stations on Borhholm scheduled for 2011.

That sounds like an amazing platform to excel energy research! This article reminds me of when I lived in Atlantic City. Every morning I passed the wind powered turbines and would think of the possibilities. I never thought the energy could be applied this way. Recently I donated my gas guzzling vehicle to National Charity Services and bought a hybrid. I am very excited to say that I am helping two causes at once. I am relieving the environment as well as having the proceeds from the donation go towards job training. Next time I drive past the wind turbines, I will think of this exciting news.

Combination of both Electrical and Wind power in vehicles is a nice and smooth move in controlling fuel consumption, but when there is a need of Fuel like diesel or gasoline one should use some stabilizers to reduce their cost in fuel, Viscon is one of the consistent provider of Fuel stabilizers.

Living in the US and in a big city, it is so obvious how inefficient gas burning vehicles are and how resolving this issue with electric or alternative vehicles would have a profound impact on the world.

I hope in my lifetime that the gas powered vehicle is a rare species and that more efficient and cleaner methods of transportation are the norm.

As outlined by a review published within the Journal with Specialized medical Oncology, certain kinds of acupuncture-point stimulation could reduce radiation treatment-induced nausea / vomiting. Inspite of considerable develop within the last decades in controlling chemotherapy-induced feeling sick as well as queasiness, more than half coming from all clients having radiation treatment however have problems with all these side effects. On top of that, feeling sick may possibly remain when queasiness is definitely managed. Most of these signs or symptoms may be greatly debilitating and they often cause sufferers in order to turn down further lessons with radiation treatment.

Denmark leading the way in real terms to save our planet and still provide people with the life they are used to.
I think it is important that technologies like using Browns Gas in cars and home generators will be the deciding factors.
In the end people will inadvertently side with the oil dependent industries and move governments out of power who are trying to get real technologies in.
The change will be too slow and we will be in an immanent danger situation like right now!

Good on ya Denmark, you make me proud to be human!

It’s about creating healthier living environments for you and your family, utilizing long lasting and low-maintenance materials so you’ll lose less time to maintenance chores and repairs, and emphasizing environmental responsibility so you can rest easy knowing that you’re doing everything you can to pass a better world onto your children and grandchildren.

Nitin. An interesting article – thanks for forwarding along. I have to confess that I’m not very convinced on the effects of large wind farms on changing surface temperatures downwind. More pertinent to this case, I think it’s a non issue since the wind farms in Bornholm are on an island, where the only surface temperature to be thinking about is that of the ocean. Thus it doesn’t have the same agricultural ramifications (drier soil, etc.) and where the temperatures are far more dynamic than in the Midwest of the United States where these tests are being conducted.
