RealValue fights the internet and wins!
RealValue partners from Glen Dimplex and SSE travelled to Estoril, Portugal, for 19th-20th June to participate in what is now a regular fixture in the project’s calendar – the EURELECTRIC Annual Convention. The conference kicked off with Session I on ‘The Value of Electrification’ during Glen Dimplex was delighted to have the opportunity to give a live demonstration of the RealValue solution.
A brand new video clip showcasing the technology used within the project was unveiled at this event – check it out on our YouTube channel!
Project Director Rowena McCappin demonstrated the Intel aggregation platform in action – pushing heating requirements from a subset of Quantum heating appliances within the project through the optimisation engine to produce an optimised charging schedule. The Intel gateway management platform was also shown, as well as the CRM system developed by SSE with Logic to host a wide range of heating data which can be viewed and compared in a range of graphs. Finally, the app, allowing remote control of the SETS appliances at any time, was presented. The full demonstration was well received, despite a glitch with the conference internet connection which was quickly rectified (but nevertheless ensured that all of the 400+ participants remembered RealValue well!)
There was a high-level of interest in the project, with a large number of participants visiting the RealValue exhibition to obtain more information and view the SETS heater and cylinder on display.
