CELL - Collaborative Energy Living Lab

DESCRIPTION

The Collaborative Energy Living Lab (CELL) drives innovation for cyber-physical energy systems in Switzerland. It provides a testbed for digital energy applications and power systems integration. In CELL, we develop and validate modern solutions for clean energy systems. CELL combines traditional power systems and microgrids competence with applied research in information and communication technology.
CELL has grown out of the successful Living Lab ‘iHomeLab’ on the Hochschule Luzern (HSLU) campus. The CELL concept is a modular, scalable living lab that combines facilities, expertise and partnerships across the university footprint.
CELL uses the Campus Ecosystem including an innovation park and other existing communities, e.g. https://www.am-aawasser.ch/, as real-life living labs for developing, testing and showcasing advanced technology and systems. CELL offers modular services to business, research and community partners.
