Urban Storage Cluster Southern Burgenland


The research group AIST supports the colleagues of the institute ASIC at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria Campus Wels with the project implementation.

The development and realization of a Living-Lab test operation of a cluster-based (storage cluster) energy management system spanning buildings, users, neighbourhood storage and charging stations in the test area of the Stegersbach golf and thermal spa region as well as in the urban test area of the city of Oberwart is to be carried out in combination with new innovative tariff models (account system) primarily for the activation, bundling and marketing of small-structured energy flexibilities. The main focus will be on the optimization of the storage cluster

and not on the realization of energetic optimal states of the individual participants. This enables the integration and use of local renewable energy supply systems as well as the renewable surplus energy available in the associated control area more efficiently, increases the direct use quota, activates (flexibility) marketing potentials and creates corresponding incentives for the switch to electromobility.
