Putting Digital Circuit Breakers at the Centre of the Smart Grid

Project description

Novel solid-state circuit breaker on the path to commercialisation

Renewables’ share in power generation is increasing over time, but their intermittent nature makes it difficult to match power demand to supply. Despite the great amount of money invested in smart meters, such devices are limited in their ability to collect sufficient data to send to the utility, offer households great control of their energy use and implement demand side management. Sweden-based company Blixt Tech has unveiled a solid-state circuit breaker called DigiBreaker that helps overcome the challenges associated with smart meters. The technology turns a fuse box into a smartphone, collecting and communicating real-time electricity usage data. The goal of the EU-funded DigiBreakers project is to commercialise the technology and explore business opportunities.
