Smart Grids

The Hydrogen Research Institute (IRH) and the LIREI (Laboratoire d’Innovation et de Recherche en Énergie Intelligente) have expertise in key areas of smart grids, obtained through several years of valuable research studies. Smart grids offer different potentials for improving energy efficiency, service quality, and customer’s satisfaction through the convergence of information and communication technologies (ICT), artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), electronics, and energy conversion systems in general.
