ITRI's SENSE (Smart Energy for a Sustainable Ecosystem) won the 2023 R&D 100 Award in the Software/Services category. This pioneering technology is the industry's first sustainable circular energy solution, allowing energy units to be utilized throughout their entire life cycle. Starting with initial use in electric vehicles to essential role in energy replenishment systems, and finally serving in energy storage systems, the SENSE optimizes each phase by accommodating a variety of battery types, whether new or old. The adaptability extends the system's lifespan by 3 to 5 times.

Additionally, this solution treats power sources from diverse inputs like wind, solar, or batteries as individual differently-sized power units (SDPUs). By using software-defined energy approach, these units can be flexibly and quickly aggregated (SDPA) to produce required large-scale AC or DC power supply system. It results in a 35% reduction in energy transfer loss and a 30% cost reduction in construction. Moreover, energy units can be quickly separated and reconfigured according to multi-party electricity usage and demand, achieving the best economic benefits of sharing.
