Projects

OSMOSE

OSMOSE proposes four TSO-led demonstrations (RTE, REE, TERNA and ELES) aiming at increasing the techno-economic potential of a wide range of flexibility solutions and covering several applications, i.e.: synchronisation of large power systems by multiservice hybrid storage; multiple services provided by the coordinated control of different storage and FACTS devices; multiple services provided by grid devices, large demand-response and RES generation coordinated in a smart management system; cross-border sharing of flexibility sources through a near real-time cross-border energy market.

P2P-SmarTest

P2P-SmartTest project investigates and demonstrates a smarter electricity distribution system integrated with advanced ICT, regional markets and innovative business models. It will employ Peer-to-Peer (P2P) approaches to ensure the integration of demand side flexibility and the optimum operation of DER and other resources within the network while maintaining second-to-second power balance and the quality and security of the supply. The results will be integrated to demonstration and validation environment to provide real-life results of distributed energy system designs.

Platone

Platone aims at developing a layered set of platforms to meet the needs of system operators, aggregators and end users. A blockchain-based platform is the access layer to generators’ and customers’ flexibilities able to break traditional access barriers by providing certified measures to all the players. In conjunction, certified data and signals are used for an innovative DSO platform to locally maintain system integrity fostering confidence in flexibility operations. An upper layer implements a new concept of blockchain-based open market platform to link the local system to the TSO domains and enhance the overall system cost efficiency. The platforms are tested in three large pilots in Europe and analysed in cooperation with a large research initiative in Canada.

PLATOON

PLATOON develops a COSMAG Compliant reference Platform with flexible capabilities in (1) Interoperability, to deal with a wide spectrum and heterogenous data sources, formats, interfaces and enable data exchange between platforms, (2) Data Governance & Security to answer multiple data owners and providers, digital sovereignty challenges, (3) Data Analytics Toolbox and Edge Computing for data processing and analysis in batch and real time.

PROMOTioN

The project ‘PROgress on Meshed HVDC Offshore Transmission Networks’ (PROMOTioN) applied in 2015 for funding under the EU Horizon 2020 (H2020) programme call ‘Competitive Low-Carbon Energy’ 5 (LCE 5). Within the framework of modernisation of the European electricity grid, this call focused on advancing innovation and technologies relevant to the deployment of meshed offshore grids. Its specific objective is to pursue an agreement between network operators and major equipment suppliers regarding a technical architecture and a set of multi-vendor interoperable technologies in order to accelerate HVDC grid development.

The main objective of PROMOTioN is the further development and demonstration of three key technologies: diode rectifier offshore converters, multi-vendor HVDC (high-voltage direct current) grid protection systems, and full power testing of HVDC circuit breakers. Complementary to this end, a regulatory and financial framework will be developed for the coordinated planning, construction and operation of integrated offshore infrastructures, including an offshore grid deployment plan (roadmap) for the future offshore grid system in Europe.
