If you look up the definition of the word "smart", you will findt erms like "clever", "intelligent" or "sophisticated". With precisely these kinds of ideas, SmartWatts is developing new approaches for the energy market, portfolio management, the measurement and analysis of power consumption, and invoicing systems. Customers receive a smart kilowatt-hour and can see where the electricity was produced, how it was transported and how much the power currently costs.
Smart Watts defines the Internet of Energy on three levels: at the systemlevel, a number of power generation, consumption and control systems communicate with one another. At the business level, the stakeholders plan, control, monitor and optimize the efficient use of plants and contract conditions depending on their particularmarket role. The information level is the centerpiece of E-Energy, linking the other two levels and allowing the stakeholders and systems in the "energy Web" to safely communicate with one another in real time.
