First city-level IoE project completed in Haining, Zhejiang province

The first city-level Internet of Energy (IoE) demonstration project was completed in Haining of Zhejiang province on August 29. The project, also known as the IoE Pilot Demonstration of Jiaxing City (which used to be a part of Haining city), is jointly led by State Grid Zhejiang Electric Power Company and the Haining government. The demonstration project was successfully selected as one of the first batches of the National Energy Administration’s (NEA) smart energy projects.

The project is located in Haining, a city of 700 square meters with a population of 0.8 million. The IoE structure is based on Active Distribution Networks (ADNs) and builds an urban integrated energy service platform that integrates and consumes 100% renewable energy and provides services such as building energy efficiency management, supply and demand mediation, smart energy and green transportation. It aims to successfully build an intelligent, open, shared, diverse and comprehensive urban IoE engineering model. Zhejiang Electric Power hopes to be the pioneer to realize State Grid’s vision to build and operate “a STRONG smart grid” and “Ubiquitous Power Internet of Things,” and to become a world-class IoE enterprise.

In addition to high integration of DE (distributed energy), the ADN also achieves high quality and reliability of power operation through actively planning, managing and controlling loads, storage and power generation response and participation. (JX PEOPLE)
