Projects

EU-SysFlex (LCE-4 2017)

EU-SysFlex will make an important contribution in meeting the European Union (EU) world leading RES objectives. The results and later impacts of the project will be decisive for the cost-effective transformation of the electricity system, by enhancing the flexibility required, while maintaining the level of resilience that consumers and society expect from the European electricity system.

Flex4Grid (LCE-7 2014)

Flex4Grid aims at creating an open data and service framework that enables a novel concept of prosumer flexibility management, i.e. managing flexibility of prosumer demand and generation for the benefit for all key stakeholders: Cloud service providers will be able to offer new services to Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and prosumers; DSOs benefit from external services, peak load reduction and generation‐demand gap reduction; prosumers benefit by becoming an active market player for both, demand and generation; new market players will be able to offer services based on the third party data interface.

FLEXICIENCY (LCE-7 2014)

The FLEXICIENCY project aims to demonstrate that the deployment of novel services in the electricity retail markets, such as advanced monitoring, local energy control and flexibility, can be accelerated thanks to an open European market place for  standardised interactions among electricity stakeholders within and across borders. This will open up the energy market to new players at EU level.

Flexitranstore (LCE-4 2017)

FLEXITRANSTORE (An Integrated Platform for Increased FLEXIbility in smart TRANSmission grids with STORage Entities and large penetration of Renewable Energy Sources) aims to contribute to the evolution towards a pan-European transmission network with high flexibility and high interconnection levels. This will facilitate the transformation of the current energy production mix by hosting an increasing share of renewable energy sources. Novel smart grid technologies, control and storage methods and new market approaches will be developed, installed, demonstrated and tested introducing flexibility to the European power system.

FLEXMETER (LCE-7 2014)

The FLEXMETER project focus is the development and demonstration of a flexible smart metering architecture, based on cheap and already available components, that can be implemented in a plug and play way, combining metering of different services (electricity, water, gas, district heating), providing advanced services to the users, to the DSOs and to the other utilities, and enhancing the possibilities of the retail market.
In the FLEXMETER project two pilot applications in two different countries (Italy and Sweden), on real distribution systems, with the involvement of the local DSOs and volunteer prosumers will be demonstrated.The results on the demonstrators will then be scaled up to the size of the cities in order to evaluate the advantages on a real scale.

FutureFlow (LCE-6 2015)

FutureFlow links interconnected control areas of four transmission system operators of Central-South Europe which today do face increasing challenges to ensure transmission system security: the growing share of renewable electricity units has reduced drastically the capabilities of conventional, fossil-fuel based means to ensure balancing activities and congestion relief through redispatching. Research and innovation activities are proposed to validate that consumers and distributed generators can be put in a position to provide balancing and redispatching services, within an attractive business environment.
