HYPERTECH Energy Labs comprise the main research and innovation arm of HYPERTECH SA. The recently founded unit focuses on designing and developing innovative techniques and solutions for automated analysis of consumer profiles, as well as, the development of intelligent and automated techniques for real-time balancing of supply and demand of electricity (power balance optimization), while overcoming critical factors that prevent widespread adoption and implementation of demand response strategies (Demand Response - DR).
HYPERTECH Energy Labs aim at providing flexible solutions for small and medium-sized electricity consumers and integrated solutions for electric utilities and service providers in the field of demand management (Aggregators).
The business strategy of HYPERTECH Energy Labs includes research and development of advanced technologies, to create a full suite of solutions and products appealing to everyone involved in the electricity market, namely:
Solutions for consumers: Tools for Creating Detailed Consumption Profiles (Consumer Profiling), Tools for personalized billing reports (Informative Billing) and Innovative Solutions for Building Automation.
Solutions for Public Agencies and Business / Industrial Consumers: Multiparametric solutions to optimize energy consumption without compromising business performance targets (Entertprise Performance and Sustainability), Tools for the analysis and real-time monitoring of power consumption data (Billing Analysis, Monitoring and Optimization), along with energy consumption forecasting and reporting tools.
Solutions for Utilities and Energy Services Companies: Tools for analyzing Consumers' Portfolios and shaping optimized billing strategies, Innovative Solutions for Forecasting and Management of Electricity Demand, Tools for Electricity Trading Optimization and Risk Management and cutting-edge solutions for ensuring semantic interoperability between infrastructure / devices / systems of smart grid, adopting the approach of the Internet of Things (Cloud and Standards-Based Services - "Internet of the Grid").
Hypertech Energy Labs have been actively involved in EU Funded R&D programmes since their establishment, in 2010. Hypertech Energy Labs are currently involved as a main technology partner in the FP7 Projects Adapt4EE, INERTIA and BESOS, as well as in the Eco-Innovation Project ECOPROWINE and the national R&D project ECOBUILDING. Hypertech Energy Labs hold vast experience on various aspects of the DSM spectrum and the development of innovative tools both for the consumer, as well as, for the Utilities and Aggregators.

26/11/2019 FLEXIGRID : November 2019, kick-off meeting. In order to reach the Paris Agreement objectives and achieve a more sustainable energy system, the EU is aiming at increasing up to at least 32% the share of renewables in energy consumption. At this purpose FLEXIGRID project will develop a set of solutions to address, under a cost-efficient basis, the challenges for reliability, stability and security of supply that the electricity grid is expected to face as a result of the increasing share of variable renewables in the energy system.
