TILOS demonstrates the optimal integration of local scale battery storage in a smart island microgrid and challenges the interplay between storage, DSM and interconnection. By encouraging public engagement, TILOS addresses the social aspects of community storage and seeks for the development of novel business models.
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.
ENERGISE is a research project of the EU Commission established to perform an analysis for smart grid communication infrastructure together with the different parties on governmental, industrial, DSO and TSO side. The main focus is on identifying the different factors which determine if a dedicated or shared communication infrastructure should be used and aid the decision-making for solution deployment. At the same time the different parties are brought together during workshops and on-site visits in order to enhance the interdisciplinary communication and exchange of knowledge.
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.
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.
The main purpose of the iTesla project is to develop a new generation of security assessment tools, able to support the operation of the pan-European grid in the coming years.
In the Harz region in Germany, a model project with a strong regional focus was developed and implemented within the lighthouse Smart Grids programme E-Energy (20098- 2012).
Eighteen partners as well as four associated firms – many of them settled and active in the region themselves including several small-sized regional utilities and SME’s with a focus on new energy services and products - constituted the RegModHarz consortium. Together, the consortium implemented a virtual power plant considering the integration of DER (suppliers), consumers, and the Integration of small-scale storage units.
COTEVOS project (Concepts, capacities and Methods for Testing EV Systems and their Interoperability within the Smart Grids) aims to establish the optimal structure and capacities to test the conformance, interoperability and performance of the systems to be included in the Electric Vehicles (EV) smart charging infrastructure.
Within the scope of Smart Grids, stakeholders coming from different areas of expertise need to co-operate in order to design solutions that optimise electricity network management. Particularly relevant in this context is the information exchange between DSOs and vendors when procuring systems.
The DISCERN project proposes a common approach to represent and exchange Smart Grid solutions based on the Use Case methodology, which is a standardised approach to describe system requirements (IEC 62559), and the Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM), which is a framework to represent high-level Smart Grid architectures highlighting key interoperability aspects. Moreover, libraries of Actors, Functions, and Requirements have been developed during the project in order to agree on common terms that should be used in the Use Cases and SGAM models. The proposed approach proved to be useful for sharing Smart Grid requirements and architectures both within and beyond DISCERN project.
Small and medium sized decentralised generation units as well as commercially used consumption applications can play a key role in a future energy supply system. This is especially true for decentralised generation units: they don’t need to rely on the further construction of transmission network capacities since they are situated close to the actual demand side. In addition, from a physical point of view, the total capacity of generation from this type of generation unit can be multiplied in the future.
The Smart Watts project was initiated within the German E-Energy programme on the development and testing of Smart Grids (2008 – 2021). The project consortium‘s declared goal lay in the design and implementation of an unbundling compliant information and control model for the energy system that supplies all market participants with near real-time data on generation and consumption of energy. That way, an intelligent supply management is enabled by a comprehensive control and optimisation of energy portfolios.
One key aspect in DISCERN refers to the replicability of the solutions. This means that DISCERN should propose non-specific solutions that can be replicated in different distribution networks. In that way, the descriptions of DISCERN solutions should highlight interoperability issues that enable the replicability of these solutions.
The Visualization Template enables users to easily represent and identify interoperability aspects at different layers by providing an intuitive graphical representation of the solutions in a technology neutral manner.
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.
