PRICE – GDE
The Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía (ITE) has developed, together with the main Spanish electricity companies, a Smart Grids project that aims at improving the efficiency of all the systems involved in the electric grid. This consumption management model is adapted to clients’ needs and it will have a display device that enables users to interact with the control and measuring equipment.
The aim of the Project is to improve the efficiency of all the systems involved in the electric grid. This improvement will allow saving costs related to electrical infrastructures and it will favour a more responsible use of equipments in homes, so that users will notice savings on their energy bill.
This year, it has been launched a pilot App that permits consumers to know and optimize the electricity consumption. The aim of APP PRICE-GDE is to move the electricity consumption of the hour of the day that correspond to the peak electricity demand time, to off-peak hours, when the consumption is very low, in order to make maximum use of the infrastructures and to reduce system costs. Moreover, the possibility of managing the energy demand makes it possible a better use of renewable energy.
