Since 2010 Sensing & Control has been developing advance functionalities for smart grid, both in the supply and the consumption, due to our innovation effort we have been awarded in several occasions by the European Commission with funds to support these activities.
In February 2021, the European Commission through the H2020 program awarded the company with a new funding scheme to invest in the development of blockchain solutions to enable the decentralized energy market and peer-focused business models, enabling effective and active participation of all energy stakeholders (including consumers, prosumers, DERs, utilities) within the energy ecosystem, not just the traditional utilities and the regulators. S&C will contribute developing a new architecture of the energy system and market with new ways of creating and capturing value from a decentralized perspective.
To ensure so starting February, Dr. Hakob Grigoryan joined the company to complement our R&D team on enhancing the energy area. Dr. Grigoryan is PhD in Economic Informatics with an honor MAGNA CUM LAUDE, by the University of Economic Studies, Bucharest with Dissertation title: Machine Learning-based Techniques for Financial Data Analysis and Forecasting Purposes. Hakob also owns a Master’s degree in Database and Web Technologies and Bachelor’s Degree in Cybernetics. During this project Hakob will collaborate with Dr. Narcis Avellana (CEO) and Dr. Raquel Ventura will (SRSCI).
