  • Synergy Energy Telecom: Policy

    By 2020 all Europeans will have broadband access at least at 30 Mbps and 50% or more European will have it at 100 Mbps.

    - It could cost more than 200 B- However, up to 80% of total investment cost are civil engineering works.

    Public Consultation on an EU Initiative to Reduce the Cost of Rolling Out High Speed Communication Infrastructure in Europe.- From 27th April to 20 July 2012- From information sharing to mandating access to infrastructures of other utilities (e.g. ducts)

    Crowdsourcing ideas to reduce the costs of broadband rollout

  • Synergy Energy Telecom: Regulation

    Co-chairing EG#3 of the Smart Grid Task Force (DG CONECT, DG ENER)Issues:exploring synergies and opportunities to put in place broadband infrastructures for the rollout of smart grids,opening up the energy digital infrastructure for telecom services,Energy service provision combined with other consumer services such as telephone, TV or InternetBEREC and CEER both involved

    The German regulator Bundesnetzagentur is responsible for telecoms and energy. On 27 August 2012 published the guidelines on optical fibre cable installation with the aim of installing power lines and telecommunication infrastructures simultaneously

    The Netherlands competition authority Energy and transport will merge with telecoms and consumer on January 1, 2013

  • Synergy Energy Telecom: Standardisation

    M/490 - Mandate for Smart Grids standards to the European Standardisation Organisation (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI)

    Co-chairing EG#1 of the Smart Grid Task Force (DG CONNECT, DG ENER)

    Follow-up the progress and validate the deliverables: prioritisation and gaps analysis, reference architecture, first set of standardsValidate the WP2013Ensure coordination with M/440 and M/468Ensure all relevant European actors are associated to the work

    Example: Ad-hoc cooperation with ITU Stefano Galli from the ITU-T Study Group 15 Q4c "Communication for Smart Grid" Cooperation between ETSI, CEN and CENELEC and ITU-T (in particular Study group 5 and Study Group 15) should be encouraged

    ****An overlapping of electrical and intelligence\telecommunications infrastructures the energy internet.

    In thinking of the power delivery system of the future, we found it helpful to think of bringing together two distinctly different but highly inter-related infrastructures. The electrical infrastructure (i.e., the poles, towers and wires) that has been created over the last 100 years and the intelligence infrastructure (i.e., the communications networks, distributed computing and sensors). The Intelligence infrastructure enhances the operation and maintenance of the electrical infrastructure and adds new functionality to the electrical infrastructure.

    The electrical infrastructure is very mature (at least in North America and Europe) that is the processes, tools, standards and fundamental technologies for the electrical infrastructure are well established. New technologies will enhance the electrical infrastructure and many programs within EPRI are working to develop that technology.

    The intelligence infrastructure is much newer and companies thinking of this as a tightly integrated (networked) infrastructure is very new. The methods, tools and standards for creating the intelligence infrastructure are only beginning to be created. Essentially, when it comes to the intelligence infrastructure, its the wild west almost completely lawless.

    In looking at the intelligence infrastructure we see that it isnt limited by technology. There is an abundance of technology that has been developed by other industries. Many times, in fact, there is too much technology.

    Today, pieces of the intelligence are installed in an isolated, fragmented way. this approach will not create an intelligence Infrastructure

    For the vision of the vision of the power delivery system of the future to be achieved, the intelligence infrastructure needs to be as pervasive and integrated as the electrical infrastructure incorporating generation, transmission, distribution, energy markets and the consumer.

    The integration of these two infrastructures is what we see creating the intelligent grid or IntelliGrid.***bringing multi-environmental criteria dimension (water, air pollution, raw materials, electricity, fuel)
