To accelerate the decarbonisation of integrated energy systems activities at the national and global levels, conventional homes are being turned into super homes by introducing distributed energy resources (DERs), such as solar PV, Energy Storage, Heat Pump, Electric Vehicle etc. SuHSI's aim is to develop a smart inverter for super homes that can seamlessly include DERs and is also compatible with Irish Low Voltage Distribution Network (LVDN).

TIPS4PED is a three-and-a-half-year Horizon Europe project aiming to create a Digital Twin-based Platform for Positive Energy Districts, supporting municipalities in decision-making with evidence-based results. It focuses on environmental sustainability, cost reduction, and a people-centric approach by engaging citizens. The project plans to test and replicate solutions in Turin, Cork, Kozani, and Budapest, contributing to EU 2030 goals with scalable technologies.
