Energy Management

Research for Energy Management

Through our research in the field of Energy Management, we help to devise optimized solutions for electricity distribution in the smart grid and for the design of energy-efficient buildings and industrial production systems. Further aspects of this research are smart battery storage and exploring the possibilities of energy harvesting. We support the transition to a new energy economy by devising suitably adapted information and communication technologies and by developing novel applications with autonomous energy supplies.

Energy Management - At a glance


The Energy Management business field gathers many years of experience and expertise at Fraunhofer IIS. We contribute with new ICT and energy self-sufficient solutions for the implementation of the energy revolution.



We create and optimize methods, products, and systems all the way from the design stage until they are ready for the market. In our Energy Management business field, we base our research on the latest methods and findings.


Here you will our technologies for smart grids, local energy management and energy self-sufficiency.


A selection of successful projects in the research field of energy management can be found here.


Here you will find our downloads in pdf format that give an overview of Fraunhofer IIS. They provide an introduction to our technologies in the Energy Management business field and present application scenarios.


The IoT-Bus is a communication, which enables a secure and reliable data transmission of measured values and control commands and connectivity to the Internet of Things.



In the field of Energy Harvesting we develop technologies and systems for using energy of the ambient (like heat, light or motion) for the supply of electronic systems.



Energy Management Press Releases

Please find all recent Energy Management press releases in the news section of Fraunhofer IIS.


Secure communication in the Internet of Things with the IoT-Bus

The secure and reliable connection of physical objects is a crucial success factor for applications in the Internet of Things (IoT). The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has developed the IoT-Bus, the first fieldbus to feature IPv6 support and an integrated security system. It combines Internet-protocol support with the advantages of a fieldbus, resulting in extensive range, high reliability and robustness and low latency.
