Projects

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.

FlexiGrid (864048)

FlexiGrid demonstrates cutting-edge technologies and innovative flexible markets enabled by advanced cross-platforms for local energy exchanges and providing flexibility to distribution system operators in order to ensure secure, stable and affordable operations of electrical distribution grids for de-carbonising energy systems with high shares of renewables (up to and above 100%). By leveraging digital, smart grid technologies, IoT, blockchain, FlexiGrid provides a transparent data management platform by broadcasting real-time information on the conditions of the network to optimize the observability of the grid and market functioning.

FLEXITRANSTORE

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

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

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.
