Ferro Smart Grid

Ferro Smart Grid (Smart Grid Development for Energy Management in the Railway Sector) introduced the concept of intelligent networks to the railway sector by developing an experimental prototype. Based on power storage and electromobility systems for efficient energy consumption, the first smart grid for railways allowed:
- Optimal management of electric network systems.
- Interoperability of different urban and inter-urban transport systems, integrated electrically through intelligent nodes.
- Optimization of power usage in response to passenger volume.

The Ferro Smart Grid ushered in a new paradigm for railway networks.
Co-funded by the Center for Industrial Technological Development, Junta de Andalucía, and the European Commission under the INNTERCONECTA program, the project (ITC-20111044) had an €8,822,352 budget and lasted from 2012 to February 2015.

Partners: Telvent Energía, Adif, Acisa, Adevice, Inabensa, Win Innertia, Indra, Andel, University of Sevilla, University of Málaga, University of Córdoba, and University of Jaen.
