GOFLEX (LCE-2 2016)

GoFlex will innovate, integrate and demonstrate smart-grid technologies, enabling the cost effective use of demand response in distribution grids: increasing the grids available adaptation capacity, safely supporting an increasing share of renewable electricity generation, improving observability and manageability of distribution grid for use of demand response and supporting localized concentration of prosumers DR for DSO to prevent congestion and energy imbalance.

GRIDSOL (LCE-7 2016)

GRIDSOL proposes Smart Renewable Hubs, where a core of synchronous generators (CSP and biogas combined cycle HYSOL) is integrated with PV under a dynamic control system (DOME), self-regulating and providing ancillary grid services thanks to firm, flexible generation on a single output, tailored to a specific location, relieving pressure on the TSO.

The project will research a Dynamic Output Manager of Energy (DOME) to ensure operation efficiency and grid stability with higher RES penetration, and a multi-tower concept for CSP cost reduction and efficiency improvement, to provide secure, clean and efficient electricity by getting the most of each renewable primary source.

InteGrid (LCE-2 2016)

InteGrid aims at demonstrating how DSOs enable the different stakeholders to actively participate in the energy market and to develop and implement new business models, making use of new data management and consumer involvement approaches. This project looks for demonstrating scalable and replicable solutions in an integrated environment that enable DSOs to plan and operate the network with a high share of DRES in a stable, secure and economic way, using flexibility inherently offered by specific technologies and by interaction with different stakeholders.

InterFlex (LCE-2 2016)

The InterFlex project brings together 5 European distribution system operators to improve the performance and the reliability of a local electric system by testing new uses of local flexibilities and new solutions of system automation. This project aims at improving on the performances of electricity networks since they have a central role to address the increasing complexity of the electricity system, while remaining the starting point for progressing towards an energy system approach because of its potential connections with heat, transport, gas, etc.

INVADE (LCE-2 2016)

Smart system of renewable energy storage based on INtegrated EVs and bAtteries to empower mobile, Distributed and centralised Energy storage in the distribution grid.

Outcome: A cloud -based flexibility management system integrated with EVs and battery storages at mobile, distributed and centralized levels.

Impact: Utilize renewable energy more effectively, optimizing the supply of electricity and making services more end-user-centric.

This project targets to improve congestion management in the European power grid, avoid expensive investments in grid capacity and lower European consumer energy bills.
