Patent for Demand Management System for the operation of small hydropower generation using aquaculture effluent (as a DER)
We acquired a patent for a Demand Management System for the operation of small hydropower generation using aquaculture effluent as a distributed energy resource (hereinafter “DER”). Through signing a business agreement for cooperation in the energy field with Shinhwa S&C Co., we co-applied for a patent early this year.
The patent allows the utilization of a hydropower generator that produces electricity using fish farm discharge water, as well as efficient operation and management of the generated energy through the Energy Management System (hereinafter “EMS”).
<Operation of small hydropower generation using aquaculture effluent>
Extending the specter of Distributed Energy Resources (hereinafter “DER”) such as PV, ESS, EV, CHP, etc, to hydropower sources through the integrated energy management system VPP platform(EIP) is a meaningful step for DER resource management. By utilizing self-power generation through a small hydropower plant is expected to reduce the cost of existing electricity used in fish farms and at the same time expand them as a resource capable of operation management.About EIP
