POSYTYF

Smart grids and Big data

The increasing penetration of solar photovoltaic and wind power requires modern power grids that can deliver electricity from producers to consumers reliably. However, increasing renewable energy sources (RESs) integration comes with limitations. One solution is to increase the share of so-called dispatchable RESs (those that have a natural storage capacity). The EU-funded POSYTYF project will group several RESs into a systemic object called Virtual Power Plant. It’s a way to aggregate RES sources to form a portfolio of dispatchable/non-dispatchable RESs able to optimally and internally redispatch resources. The project will bring together partners from four EU countries

FEVER

Smart grids and Big data

The European Research & Innovation project FEVER aims at demonstrating and implementing solutions that leverage the potential of flexibility in generation, consumption and storage of electricity. With an overall budget of almost 10 million euros, seventeen partners from eight European countries are working together to accelerate the transformation of the energy system

The project Flexible Energy Production, Demand and Storage-based Virtual Power Plants for Electricity Markets and Resilient DSO Operation (FEVER) receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement no 864537

BD4OPEM - BIG DATA FOR OPEN INNOVATION MARKETPLACE

Smart grids and Big data

BD4OPEM develops an Analytic Toolbox, based on Big data techniques, providing tools for enabling efficient business processes in the energy sector. By extracting more value from available data, a range of innovative services will be created in the fields of grid monitoring, operation and maintenance, network planning, fraud detection, smart houses/buildings/industries energy management, blockchain transactions and flexibility aggregation for demand-response. The Open Innovation Marketplace will ensure secure data flows from data providers to solution providers, always compliant with GDPR requirements, so that asset management is enhanced, consumer participation in energy balancing is promoted and new data-driven business models are created through innovative energy services.

Smart grids and Big data

Integrated electric vehicles and batteries to empower distributed and centralised storage in distribution grids.Renewable energies and electric vehicles (EVs) change the way we consume and produce electricity. It also changes the way those who manage and distribute it must think about the electricity system – to always provide the best possible service for the connected costumers. But these things are difficult, and often take a long time. The goal of the EU funded Horizon 2020 project INVADE is to greatly speed up this process, by showing that the technologies and solutions we have today, only must be connected in new ways to solve the challenges of tomorrow.

EMPOWER

European Commission

Smart grids and Big data

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.

Smart Rural Grid

European Commission

Smart grids and Big data

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

This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. 619610 Poster_SmartRuralGrid.pdf
