Smart gas grids
Active systems that integrate different types of energy and make decisions autonomously to optimise energy distribution. Smart Grids are an ambitious project thanks to which, in the very near future, energy will be distributed through networks capable of instantly managing and regulating multiple, discontinuous, and bidirectional flows.
Smart Grids can greatly contribute to achieving the European objectives of the Green Deal. Smart Grids implementation allows to optimise flows, transforming the final consumer in producer of energy, and maximise the safety and eliminating leakage and waste.
Distributing natural gas through sustainable, smart grids means designing systems which feature flexibility in managing flows, the ability to maintain balance within decentralised grids with bidirectional flows and resilience of the systems themselves.
Pietro Fiorentini’s systemic approach aims to pursue simple connections that interact with each other to create resilient systems. The achievement of the maximum level of Smart Gas Grids implementation is to achieve full integration between gas distribution networks.
