Projects

ELSA

The project Energy Local Storage Advanced system (ELSA) brings distributed storage solutions to maturity. Its objective is to enable their integration into the energy system and their commercial use.

ELSA addresses existing development needs by combining 2nd life batteries with an innovative local ICT-based Energy Management System in order to develop a low-cost, scalable and easy-to-deploy battery energy storage system.

EMPOWER

The EMPOWER concept aims to encourage and enable the active participation of citizens that consume and produce energy in the electrical system. It is based on the insight that a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and an increase of energy efficiency require radical changes in the way we produce and consume energy.

ENERGISE

ENERGISE is a research project of the EU Commission to do a cost/benefit analysis for smart grid infrastructure. The focus is on the core question: What should be the basis for the expansion of smart grids, independent proprietary communications networks of the electrical utilities or structures shared by the energy and telecommunications sectors?

The goal of ENERGISE is to provide an expert tool that can be used in deciding whether to expand the ICT infrastructure in shared or dedicated form. In addition, ENERGISE offers all participating stakeholders a platform for discussion, enabling them to share information on trends and developments in the area of “ICT infrastructure for smart grids.”

EU-SysFlex

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

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

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.
