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. www.empowerh2020.eu
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 646476.
The Smart Rural Grid project aims to develop the smart rural grid and explore the best ways to make the transition from the current rural distribution networks to the new using novel smart grid technologies and associated business concepts. The project will reconsider rural network distribution architectures that are currently used and introduce, combine and test an entirely new concept that we have named the Smart Rural Grid. Smart Rural Grid will accommodate telecommunications, control and storage technologies and other systems and devices to revamp existing structures and to ensure a successful inception of the new concept developed in the project. www.smartruralgrid.eu

Ultra-fast recharge system through intelligent DC transfer via direct contact and optional backup energy storage system
The development of the electric vehicle is one of the most important challenges facing the industry in the short and medium term. There is a clear trend towards the efficient use of energy resources due to the growing demand for them and, therefore, electric vehicles will become a reality in the near future.
For the implementation of the electric vehicle, a battery recharging infrastructure composed of domestic recharge systems and ultra-fast recharge systems will be necessary. The ultra-fast recharging stations will accommodate the electric vehicle to the recharging habits of current internal combustion vehicles.
The scientific and technological objective of the SURTIDOR project consists of the conception, theoretical study, design and experimental verification of an ultra-fast recharge station for continuous batteries for the electric vehicle whose power transfer will be by direct contact; It will include an energy storage system with a bidirectional converter, a system for the integral management of the station and the systems necessary for its integration into the supply network.
This project, with the project code TSI-020302-2010-127, has been co-financed by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, within the National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2008-2011
