About the Living Lab:
The KONSTANT Living Lab incorporates load values from transformer stations at the Port of Aarhus in Eastern Jutland. The Living Lab will provide both consumption and production data.
Progress so far:
Throughout the year 2020, a lot of efforts have been made to establish the right framework for the KONSTANT Living Lab. It has been a goal for the team participating in the Living Lab to find the suitable focus and milestones. It quickly became clear that the KONSTANT Living Lab should pool its forces with the Port of Aarhus. The industrial port area is the perfect test area for this Living Lab to achieve its milestones better.
In autumn 2020, the work on expanding the Living Lab and including Port of Aarhus as an industrial test area was begun. When the collaboration was agreed on, the next steps were to develop targeted scenarios for the promising Living Lab. Upon suggestion from KONSTANT, Dansk Teknologisk Institut (DTI) became FED-partner, and immediately online measurement points related to the cooling houses, and interesting measurement points for tracking the power quality of the grid in the test area were established along with data transfer to Center Denmark. Further data acquisition at the Lundsøe Coldstore facility is being established, using smart meters from Linc or DTI. Additional industrial partners are being evaluated and are expected progress in the end of June 2021.
