Past projects


MicroBlock is a two-year (2021–2023) blockchain research project, in which Tampere University and Finland are connected to European EBSI-blockchain infrastructure. In practice, an EBSI-node is set up and deployed in fall 2021, followed by a pilot study about the management of micro-credentials (digital certifications about short-term learning experiences) in the infrastructure, both from end-user and organizational perspectives.

EVCommunities (2021-2023)

Develop foundations of a software system that can control and optimize the charging of EVs, take care of the bookkeeping (costs, reductions, …), support forming of the communities (e.g., two families can install a shared charging station). Funded by Ulla Tuominen Foundation.

IoT systems offered by different vendors are often “silos”, where each vendor creates and controls their own separate system. These systems include physical components, such as sensors, as well as the data models and data analysis. Although this end-to-end control simplifies things, there are also serious drawbacks. Vendor lock-in means that new application innovations are hindered, and new data sources are difficult to add, when data models used by different vendors are not compatible.

In this project we develop and pilot solutions to solve the above problems. The projects is a collaboration project with Tampere University, City of Tampere, University of Oulu (lead), University of Applied Sciences in Oulu and City of Oulu.

The energy system is undergoing a drastic change due to several simultaneous global development drivers including changes in the energy mix, increasing amount of electric vehicles and energy storages, emergence of new digital technologies and stricter requirements for electricity supply reliability. The role of prosumers and energy communities is one of the main open questions affecting the development paths towards smart and environmentally friendly energy system.

The main objective of ProCemPlus project is to study the formation of individual energy communities into broader business-oriented energy ecosystems through several research themes and concrete pilot-cases related to the development of energy communities, and to analyze the role of microgrids and energy communities in the future energy ecosystem.

The role of TASE team of the unit of Computing Sciences is related to design of the required information system and related software/platform economy.
