The Gachon University Power IT Research Center is a group that researches Grid 2.0 technology, which considers energy, capital and information as one concept and aims to compress and release it into time and space.
The Grid 2.0 is our proposal for a new energy system. The 2.0 promotes effectiveness and flexibility resulting from a parallel autonomous system, creativity of the network base, and flexibility of non-synchronized time and space. The 2.0 has already been realized in various areas including information communication, broadcasting and business and is enjoying new growth and considerable success in these areas.
We aim to draw the Grid 2.0 in bold terms that go beyond the existing imagination such as packet based energy transaction systems, non-synchronized operation methods, diverse intelligence architecture through weak combinations, multi-modal platform providing free style in quality and consumption, and energy service business systems.
The Grid 2.0 is therefore our vision for a future energy system.
What is more, the Power IT Research Center aims to promote the necessary research, development and industrialization for realizing that vision.
