For energy-saving and carbon emission reduction, III developed an advanced metering infrastructure and smart grid application services based on verified WSN technologies. With the integrated technologies of sensor networks, network management and data processing, III created a large-scale data collection and analysis platform to effectively reach and accomplish energy conservation goals. In addition, III aggressively leads industry alliances to establish industrial consensus to form competitive industry standards that solve inter-operability issues. The acceleration of intelligent meter infrastructure will create value-added services to improve our national competitiveness.
Technologies and Applications of Energy ICT
Advanced Metering Infrastructure
III developed a nationwide Advanced Metering Infrastructure System to increase the efficiency of metering, and in order to facilitate the achievement of energy-saving value-added services. Through the real-time monitoring and meter data analysis technologies, theft of energy, tampering, outage and abnormal events can be promptly detected; together with the information sharing and service-oriented architecture, the highly inter-operable modularization system can be established for metering and power management services.
Distribution Management Systems and Demand Response Platform
Developing a demand response platform for major utilities would require to facilitate the demand response and management’s needs, and for further integration of energy and information technologies to develop the required technologies for the commercial and residential sectors. The Distribution Management Systems offers the best solutions for both power usage safety and power-control intelligence in a building, at home or in a community.
Lighting Fusion Optimization Control System
Using wireless sensing networks to provide the lighting fusion optimization control system will enhance power lighting under insufficient natural light, while turning down the power lighting under sufficient natural light, in order to provide a comfortable and energy-saving living environment. This efficiency analysis and report system will implement energy performance analysis technologies, integrate auto statistics-compiling, power-saving ratio and accumulated power-saving readings, to evaluate the system’s actual economic benefits and output when generating the energy-saving report.
In the R&D [research and development] of the Green ICT domain, III focused on the vision of developing the Green Transportation/Telematics infrastructure, especially in the development of (1) Autonomous Telematics Communication Modules, Middleware, and service platform; (2) Telematics ITS Integrated Total Solutions, and essential IPR deployment; and (3) LBS [Location Based Services] for the Green application system platform for the City Transportation and Intelligent Logistics.
