The following article describes results of MOEEBIUS H2020 project which introduces a Holistic Energy Performance Optimization Framework that enhances current (passive and active building elements) modelling approaches with advanced user behaviour  modelling and machine learning technologies to create an innovative suite of end-user tools and applications.

GRID4EU Demo3: The Spanish Demonstrator

The Spanish Demonstrator in Castellon focuses on the enhancement of the MV and LV network automation and the awareness of the customers about their consumption and network situation.

NOBEL GRID Project: Smart energy for people

The project NOBEL GRID, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, will provide advanced tools and ICT services to all actors in the Smart Grid and retail electricity market in order to ensure benefits from cheaper prices, more secure and stable grids and clean electricity. These tool and services will enable active consumers’ involvement, new business models for new actors and the integration of distributed renewable energy production.

Keywords / tags: Smart grid, retail electricity markets, Information Communication Technology (ICT), flexible renewable energy integration, consumers prosumers, smart meters, Distribution System Operators.

BESOS: Building Energy Decision Support Systems for Smart cities

The strategic goal of BESOS is to enhance existing neighbourhoods with decision support system to provide coordinated management of public infrastructures in Smart Cities, and at the same time provide citizens with information to promote sustainability and energy efficiency.

The Estfeed Project: Innovative data sharing ICT infrastructure for energy market participants

Estfeed project built a software platform capable to integrate many data sources and to provide appropriate services to convert these data into valuable information for energy flexibility management, energy efficiency, audit and benchmarking.

The UPGRID project: Real proven solutions to enable active demand and distributed generation flexible integration, through a fully controllable LOW Voltage and medium voltage distribution grid

UPGRID is a research and development project under the European H2020 program that relies on 19 partners from 7 European countries, and 4 demonstrators (Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Poland) supported by different transversal work packages that define the demo scope and analyses their results and impacts based on the project objectives. It involves partners with different expertise in the energy field: DSOs, equipment manufacturers and research centres. It is led by Iberdrola Distribución, S.A.U. The project started in January 2015 for a duration of 36 months.

I3RES: ICT-based intelligent management of integrated RES for the smart grid optimal operation

The I3RES project was financed by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme and more specifically the call ICT-2011.6.1 on Smart Energy Grids. As a result, the I3RES Management Tool was developed.

Market4RES: Opportunities, challenges and risks for renewables integration in European electricity markets

Within the European Commission funded Market4RES project, the consultancy company 3E N.V. assessed empirically the challenges and issues of increasing RES-E penetration for the short-term, medium and long-term electricity markets. This was carried out through a selection of case studies that cover three different market regions with different RES-E penetration levels in the European electricity market with a focus on the Nordel system, Central-Western European system and the Iberian system.

State of the art in Distribution Network Operations

The distribution network has traditionally been a passive network, which means to pass power from bulk-supply points to consumers. Yet, due to the increase of distributed generation sources and the injection of new loads (integration of Evs for instance), distribution networks are evolving towards active networks. Future distribution networks, embedded between transmission networks and end-consumers, will become increasingly equipped and will take advantage of new techniques of monitoring, control, data analysis, communication infrastructure, planning and small-scale generation in order to support distribution network operation in an efficient way.

The EcoGrid project: development and demonstration of a near-real-time balancing market

The EcoGrid EU project develops and demonstrates a near real-time market providing a demand response market mechanism concept and allowing for services provided by DER to TSOs (feeding more generally the potential services provided by DSOs to TSOs).

DG DemoNet Smart LV Grid - Control concepts for active low voltage network operation with a high share of distributed energy resources

The main objective of the project is to find an efficient way for integrating distributed generation from renewable energy (PV) and electro mobility with regard to optimized investment of the existing asset base in low voltage grids. The focus is to increase the hosting capacity for distributed energy resources (DER) and e-mobility of low voltage distribution networks.

Smart Grids Model Region Salzburg (SGMS)

Salzburg is one of the pioneers in Europe in developing smart energy networks. This is why it was chosen by the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund to be the first Smart Grids Model Region in Austria. Smart Grids Model Region Salzburg is supported by an interdisciplinary team from the energy sector (Salzburg AG, Salzburg Netz GmbH), a property developer (Salzburg Wohnbau), a technology vendor (Siemens), consulting services (Fichtner) and renowned research institutions (Austrian Institute of Technology, Vienna University of Technology, CURE). The goal is to create a holistic smart grid system called Smart Infrastructure Salzburg.


Meter-ON is a coordination and support action to steer the implementation of smart metering solutions throughout Europe. The project aims at speeding up and optimizing the adoption of smart metering technologies and infrastructures in Europe by effectively collecting the most successful experiences in the field and highlighting the conditions that enabled their development.

INERTIA: Integrating Active, Flexible and Responsive Tertiary Prosumers into a Smart Distribution Grid

INERTIA project addresses the "structural inertia" of existing Distribution Grids by introducing more active elements combined with the necessary control and distributed coordination mechanisms. To this end INERTIA will adopt the Internet of Things/Services principles to the Distribution Grid Control Operations.

InovGrid Project - EDP Distribuição (Portugal)

Inovgrid is EDP’s umbrella project for smart grids. It presents an answer to several challenges, including: the need for increased energy efficiency; the pressure to reduce costs and increase operational efficiency; the integration of a large share of dispersed generation; the integration of electric vehicles and the desire to empower customers and support the development of new energy services.

DISCERN – Identification of the present system architecture

In DISCERN, DSO’s current system architecture (SCADA/ DMS/ OMS/ NIS/ EMS/ MDMS) for distribution network operations and their interfaces with station and enterprise zones were analysed.

GRID4EU Demo 2: Monitoring and control of LV networks using Smart Grid and AMM technology for more distributed generation and improvement of customer power quality

Started in November 2011 for a duration of 51 months, the Grid4EU project lays the groundwork for the development of tomorrow's electricity grids. Grid4EU consists of six large-scale demonstrations (one per DSO leading the project), which will be tested over a period of four years. The emphasis will be on fostering complementarity between these projects, and on promoting transversal research and sharing results between the different DSOs involved.

GRID4EU Demo 6 (Nice Grid project): Optimization of PV integration into the LV grids and assessment of the social impacts of smart grid technologies

Started in November 2011 for a duration of 51 months, the Grid4EU project lays the groundwork for the development of tomorrow's electricity grids. Grid4EU consists of six large-scale demonstrations (one per DSO leading the project), which will be tested over a period of four years.
