R&D Projects


This project concerns the development of smart microgrids based on RES to support the sustainable development of the three sectors: energy, water and agriculture. The main aim is to adapt the system to the load profile and storage strategies of modern and sustainable agricultural practices and to serve typical requirements such as pumping and irrigating. Furthermore, the process between generating, distributing, and storing electricity and water will be optimized, e.g., by identifying further RE and water sources and using reservoirs for storage.
