Speeding innovation for industry
Success | Software technologies
e-SIMS has developed the first software platform that manages intermittent energy sources and electrochemical storage.
The startup’s innovative work will enable large-scale integration of intermittent energy sources into the grid. It does this by implementing swarm intelligence and dynamic-service-oriented architecture, which allow fast development of dedicated energy management applications.
For solar energy producers in island environments characterized by “weak” grids, the software platform delivers a solution for maximizing production output (25%–30% reduction of kWh cost of energy stored in batteries). Software developed using the e-SIMS platform leverages high-quality storage modeling and multi-criteria optimization based on technical, economic, and financial criteria. Following seven years of research and demo work, e-SIMS was launched in June 2015. Liten plans to support the startup’s technology-transfer phase and business development.
The startup will put its technical expertise in the diverse fields of storage, optimization, and software development to work to bring the solution to its first customers.
