GREDOR: Management of distribution systems open to renewables

The GREDOR project addresses challenges in the management of distribution systems raised by the integration of renewable energy sources and new consumption practices, from investment decisions to real-time control. It also aims at proposing and analyzing interaction models for organizing exchanges of flexibility between stakeholders. GREDOR is funded by the Public Service of Wallonia, coordinated by the University of Liège and encompasses 7 industrial and academic partners.

OPTIMATE: a numerical simulation platform to recommend new electricity market designs integrating massive flexible generation in Europe

The aim of the FP7 project OPTIMATE was to develop a simulation platform, i.e. to develop market simulation tools, with the aim to cope with massive renewable energy integration into the EU network.

Market4RES: Post 2020 framework in a liberalised electricity market with large share of Renewable Energy Sources

The aim of the IEE-EU project Market4RES is to investigate the potential evolution of the EU electricity Target Model in order to secure the European power system decarbonisation with large amounts of renewables.


The E-DeMa project in the model region Rhein-Ruhr was initiated in the framework of the German lighthouse project initiative E-Energy (2008-2012) and aimed at designing ICT-based solutions enabling the intelligent utilisation of all resources at the model region’s disposal. Additionally, the project targeted the optimisation as well as the integration of the energy system starting from generation to storage, up to the distribution of electricity leading to an efficient final consumption through new services based on metering data and energy management services.



Evaluation of the impacts of market closure time and load flexibility with the OPTIMATE platform

The “Day-ahead design” study performed with the OPTIMATE platform aims at analyzing, for an isolated France-Belgium setup, the influence of two variables onto CO2 emissions, electricity prices and social welfare: the day-ahead closure time, thus allowing to discuss operational rules related to market closure conditions; and several load flexibility levels, thus allowing to contribute to the debate on market instruments for generation.
