TransnetBW Challenge: Energy System 2050

In the Energy System 2050 >>, the demand for flexibility will increase strongly because generation will be largely from renewables and thus volatile and not controllable. This requires a controllable electricity demand that can follow the supply. The main goal of the challenge was the identification and evaluation of possible business cases for the provision of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services by private e-cars owners, i.e. under which conditions private citizens are assumed to be willing to offer this flexibility service to the grid, and which incentives should be put in place in order to mobilize such flexibility potential. In addition, an assessment of a trade-off between the cost of participation to V2G on the one side and need for alternative flexibility options on the other side was to be analyzed.

Winner: OmegaLambdaTec

Fraunhofer-Institut Challenge: Optimize daylight harvesting systems

Since irregularities occur due to various work in the barn, we want to install an animal welfare-friendly daylight harvesting monitoring system in a chicken barn through Computer Vision >>. Daylight harvesting systems use daylight to offset the amount of electric lighting needed to properly light a space, in order to reduce energy consumption. This is accomplished using lighting control systems that can dim or switch electric lighting in response to changing daylight availability. On the basis of computer vision, the potential for optimal use of daylight is to be determined. For this purpose, the participants receiveed data from the Fraunhofer Institute at the virtual kickoff.

Winner: Vetvise

The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture has taken over the patronage of the DLG.Prototype.Club. Parliamentary State Secretary Dr Manuela Rottmann thus emphasises the high relevance of this competition for the future of animal husbandry and energy supply.

She explains:

"Elementary topic areas such as food security, climate change, rising energy prices and animal welfare play a decisive role in the future of international agriculture. They will be discussed intensively at this year's EuroTier and EnergyDecentral 2022. Identified challenges from research institutions and companies will be addressed at the DLG.Prototype.Club.

The innovative format brings together start-ups and established large companies to address the tasks of our time and find new impulses and creative solutions for the future that are tangible for all visitors to the exhibition center.

This example of cross-cultural, cross-functional and cross-sector collaboration paves the way for the future of the industry and ensures that challenges can be tackled successfully."
