Our colleague, Dr. Marina Zapater has been awarded a research grant by Fundación Iberdrola to lead a project on the optimization of renewable energies by using demand modelling techniques in SmartGrid. The project will be undertaken with Prof. José Luis Ayala, and Prof. José L. Risco, at Universidad Complutense de Madrid during the following academic year 2016-2017.
The goal of the project is to develop models for wind and solar generation, as well as models for the energy demand, and develop energy optimization techniques to maximize renewable enegy usage.
The grants were officially given on July 5th in a ceremony lead by The Royal Majesties King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain, the acting Minister of Education, Culture and Sport, Mr. Iñigo Méndez de Vigo, who were accompanied by the Chairman of IBERDROLA, Ignacio Galán, and the Chairman of Fundación Iberdrola España, Manuel Marín.
