Building-Grid Interaction

The energy grid can be viewed as the building-factory's supply chain: an efficient market place, where not just energy, but demand flexibility, delivery reliability, storage, distributed renewables, and other more traditional services can be traded. It is our vision that the future buildings should become active participants in this new market place. Our program intends to manage and optimize the traditional building material supply chain as well, aiming at improving not just the operation, but also the lifecycle of modern buildings. To pursue this goal, we have developed a world class networked cyber-physical testbed in Singapore, which will integrate all SinBerBEST technologies and research.
