Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia
The Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia (CRS4) is an interdisciplinary research center promoting the study, development and application of innovative solutions to problems stemming from natural, social and industrial environments. Information Society and Technology and High Performance Computing are the supporting foundations. The main objective is innovation. The mission is to help Sardinia to build and support a layer of modern high tech industries considered essential to its economic and cultural development. CRS4 is one of the major Italian Computing Centers and is equipped with the first Genotyping and massive DNA Sequencing Platform in Italy and with a state-of-the-art Visual Computing laboratory.
Contribution to NETfficient:
CRS4 will support the consortium in the modelling, design and development of the numerical tools used in the project. In particular, CRS4 will contribute to the development of the forecasting algorithms for renewable energy production and energy consumption to be used for the proper management of the micro smart grid and of the optimal usage of the storage facilities.
CRS4 participates to the project with the aim of developing and applying the weather analysis and forecasting tools for energy management, and in the future to apply such technologies also on a local but bigger level such as the island of Sardinia.
