Four partners for Smart Country

Prizes for a smart design for an innovative distribution system

Since 2011 we have been working on the Smart Country project with plant manufacturer ABB, consulting firm Consentec and TU Dortmund. innogy heads the consortium.

The cooperation between practitioners and scientists in the fields of energy, information and communication technology has proven extremely successful: in 2012, Smart Country won the Hesse State prize for smart energy, and in 2015 the GreenTec Award in the Energy category. Our work was sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
