Projects

TILOS

TILOS (Technology Innovation for the Local Scale Optimum Integration of Battery Energy Storage) aims to demonstrate the optimal integration of local scale energy storage in a fully-operated, smart island microgrid on Tilos island, Greece, that will also communicate with a main electricity grid. The main objective of the project will be the development and operation of a prototype battery storage system, based on NaNiCl2 batteries, provided with an optimum, real-environment smart grid control system and coping with the challenge of supporting multiple tasks, ranging from microgrid energy management, maximization of RES penetration and grid stability, to export of guaranteed energy amounts and provision of ancillary services to the main grid.

UPGRID

The UPGRID project started in the beginning of 2015 under the H2020 program and is being developed by a European consortium, composed of 19 partners from 7 European countries: Spain, Portugal, Poland, Sweden, United Kingdom, France and Norway.

The project includes 4 demonstrators that are being deployed from April 2015 to June 2017 at Bilbao area in the North of Spain, Parque das Nações in Lisbon (Portugal), Åmål in Dalsland in the South of Sweden, and Gdynia in Pomeranian Region (Poland).

WiseGRID

WiseGRID (Wide scale demonstration of Integrated Solutions and business models for European smartGRID) will provide a set of solutions and technologies to increase the smartness, stability and security of an open, consumer-centric European energy grid. The project will combine an enhanced use of storage technologies, a highly increased share of RES and the integration of charging infrastructure to favour the large-scale deployment of electric vehicles.

X-FLEX

X-FLEX aims at designing, developing and demonstrating a set of tools to integrate the emerging decentralized ecosystem of RES and flexibility systems into the existing European energy system, in an efficient and cost-effective manner, to create more stable, secure and sustainable smart grid, with special attention to extreme weather conditions. The project addresses all the actors of the smart grid value chain, from DSO to final consumers, including microgrid operators and utilities, considering flexibility in both on the generation and on the demand side, on an individual or aggregated level.
