智能能源和下一代建筑是 FabCity 的关键主题之一，Zenodys 团队受邀提供微电网需求响应电源管理解决方案。下一代建筑的建造旨在实现能源可持续发展，包括发电能力、风车、太阳能电池板、自给自足的单元等。这些建筑可以自己发电。然而，当连接到微电网时，其他机会就会打开：建筑物之间的电力交换、公共存储设施、智能电力管理等。这将成为未来智慧城市的重要组成部分。微电网是一个很有前景的概念，有望成为未来的主要能源之一。为了按预期运行，必须使用智能需求响应算法有效管理微电网。微电网的目标是尽可能自给自足。然而，这并非总是如此。当阳光普照且风很大时，参与者会产生自己的力量。但在阴天或无风的日子里，绿色能源并不总是可用的。为了弥补这一点，微电网还配备了一个电池，可以存储多余的能量并在需要时提供备用电源。
FabCity 是一个离网智能能源园区，正在阿姆斯特丹的 Java-eiland 举行。该活动的目的是对欧洲智慧城市的未来进行研究，以寻找新的社会、经济、可持续、物流和政治系统
Zown、Mpare 和 Zenodys 这三家公司合作设计了可靠的微电网解决方案。 Zown 提供现场连接，Mpare 负责功率测量，Zenodys 提供微电网管理逻辑。我们的职责是收集和处理测量结果，制定有效的需求响应策略并通过易于理解的 Web 界面可视化微电网动态。该解决方案基于 Zenodys 可视物联网平台，无需任何编程即可处理大部分任务： • ZenoConnect提供各种智能能源供应商（房屋、风车、光伏面板、电池等）的连接，并将它们连接到微电网。它还可以轻松地与 Mpare 和 HelloData 服务集成。 • ZenoVisual提供需求响应逻辑和不同策略的交付。 • ZenoExperience用于数据交付和可视化。经过微调的 Web 视觉界面为最终用户提供易于理解的信息。 • Zenobox物理连接所有设备和服务，并提供运行环境。在这种情况下，我们选择了基于 Linux 的 Raspberry PI 系统，但对于生产就绪环境，我们将使用更强大的工业网关。该解决方案是完全独立的，可以离线运行，但出于演示目的，我们还启用了远程解决方案交付和基于 Docker 的服务部署。

IoT Solutions for Smart City | Internet of Things Case Study
There were several challenges faced: It is challenging to build an appliance that can withstand a wide range of voltage fluctuations from as low at 90v to as high as 320v. Since the device would be installed in remote locations, its resilience was of paramount importance. The device would have to deal with poor network coverage and have the ability to store and re-transmit data if networks were not available, which is often the case in rural India. The device could store up to 30 days of data.
Automation of the Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline, Azerbaijan
The Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline project dates back to plans from the 1970’s. Baku’s growth was historically driven by the booming oil industry and required the import of drinking water from outside of the city. Before the construction of the pipeline, some 60 percent of the city’s households received water for only a few hours daily. After completion of the project, 75 percent of the two million Baku residents are now served around the clock with potable water, based on World Health Organization (WHO) standards. The 262-kilometer pipeline requires no pumping station, but uses the altitude differences between the Caucasian mountains and the capital to supply 432,000 m³/d to the Ceyranbatan water reservoir. To the people of Baku, the pipeline is “the most important project not only in 2010, but of the last 20 years.”
GPRS Mobile Network for Smart Metering
Around the world, the electricity supply industry is turning to ‘smart’ meters to lower costs, reduce emissions and improve the management of customer supplies. Smart meters collect detailed consumption information and using this feedback consumers can better understand their energy usage which in turn enables them to modify their consumption to save money and help to cut carbon emissions. A smart meter can be defined in many ways, but generally includes an element of two-way communication between the household meter and the utility provider to efficiently collect detailed energy usage data. Some implementations include consumer feedback beyond the energy bill to include online web data, SMS text messages or an information display in consumers’ premises. Providing a cost-effective, reliable communications mechanism is one of the most challenging aspects of a smart meter implementation. In New Zealand, the utilities have embraced smart metering and designed cost effective ways for it to be implemented. The New Zealand government has encouraged such a move to smart metering by ensuring the energy legislation is consistent with the delivery of benefits to the consumer while allowing innovation in this area. On the ground, AMS is a leader in the deployment of smart metering and associated services. Several of New Zealand’s energy retailers were looking for smart metering services for their residential and small business customers which will eventually account for over 500,000 meters when the multi-year national deployment program is concluded. To respond to these requirements, AMS needed to put together a solution that included data communications between each meter and the central data collection point and the solution proposed by Vodafone satisfied that requirement.
OneWireless Enabled Performance Guarantee Test
Tata Power's power generation equipment OEMs (M/s BHEL) is required to provide all of the instrumentation and measurement devices for conducting performance guarantee and performance evaluation tests. M/s BHEL faced a number of specific challenges in conducting PG tests: employing high-accuracy digital communications for instrumentation, shortening setup and dismantling time, reducing hardware required, making portable instrument setup, avoiding temporary cabling work and the material waste costs
NB-IoT connected smart meters to improve gas metering in Shenzhen
Shenzhen Gas has a large fleet of existing gas meters, which are installed in a variety of hard to reach locations, such as indoors and underground, meaning that existing communications networks have struggled to maintain connectivity with all meters. The meter success rate is low, data transmissions are so far unstable and power consumption is too high. Against this background, Shenzhen Gas, China Telecom, Huawei, and Goldcard have jointly trialed NB-IoT gas meters to try and solve some of the challenges that the industry faces with today’s smart gas meters.
British Gas Modernizes its Operations with Innovative Smart Metering Deployment
The UK government has mandated that smart meters are rolled out as standard across Great Britain by end of 2020, and this roll-out is estimated to create £14 billion in net benefits to the UK in consumer energy savings and lower energy generation demand, according to the Oxford Economics report, “The Value of Smart Metering to Great Britain.” While smart-metering systems have been deployed in many countries, the roll-out in Great Britain is unique because it is led by energy retailers, who have responsibility for the Electricity and Gas meters. The decision to have a retailer-led roll out was made by DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change) to improve customer experience and drive consumer benefits. It has also led to some unique system-level requirements to support the unique local regulatory model.
