Smart metering for enhanced energy management presented in Spain 20 May 2021
In2Stempo project has been invited to Spanish industry event organised by the PTFE (Spanish Railway Technology Platform) in collaboration with ADIF and dedicated to looking into innovations in energy management within the railway industry.
The conference “Innovation in energy management: railway contribution to sustainable mobility" held on May 12th and 13th had a total of 25 speakers representing railway administrators and operators (Adif, Adif AV, Renfe, Metro Madrid, TMB, DB Netz AG), the administration (CDTI, State Research Agency, MITMA), the rolling stock builders (Alstom, Caf, Talgo), the National Hydrogen Center, Red Eléctrica España, INECO, the CSIC, the university (IIT-ICAI-Comillas) and the IN2STEMPO consortium (represented by project’s partner CAF Turnkey & Engineering).
Oskar Gonzalez Alonso presented In2Stempo's work conducted in work packages related to Smart Power Supply and Smart Metering for Railway Distributed Energy Resource Management System Technology Demonstrators, and in more detail, use case looking into the use of smart metering in stationing and maintenance facilities.
As a result of this conference, a national position document will be drawn up on the present and future of innovation in energy management in the Spanish railway system. This document will be translated into English to disseminate it, not only at the national level, but also among the key agents of international railway R&D.
