380 V DC power grids are the most energy-efficient electricity distribution method in buildings. Furthermore, building-integrated solar power systems with DC grid connection are lower cost and have a faster return on investment (ROI) than classical 230V/400V AC power distribution grids. Thus DC power grids support European 20-20-20 targets as well as several of ENIAC’s Grand Challenges on "Reduction of Energy Consumption", "Energy Distribution and Management "Smart Grid" as well as "Sustainable and Efficient Energy Generation". The DCC+G project is therefore developing system components for pilot installations based on innovative semiconductor power technologies. Original system components will be developed, ranging from safety devices such as fuses, switches, circuit breakers and protection devices to lighting systems, solar and combined heat and power systems and finally a DC grid controller and central AC/DC converter system as a mains interfacing module.
