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.

SmartNet: a new Horizon2020 project studying TSO-DSO interaction to acquire ancillary services from distribution networks

The project SmartNet aims at comparing different architectures for optimized interaction between TSOs and DSOs in managing the purchase of ancillary services (reserve and balancing, voltage regulation, congestion management) from subjects located in the distribution segment. An ad hoc simulation platform is built up over three layers (physical network, market and ICT) in order to simulate three national cases (Italy, Denmark, Spain); this simulation platform is then implemented in a full replica lab, where the performance of real controller devices is tested. Three physical pilots are also developed to demonstrate modalities for exchanging monitoring signals between transmission and distribution networks and flexibility services that can be offered by entities connected to distribution by exploiting thermal inertia of indoor swimming pools and distributed storage facilities of radio-base stations used for telecommunication.

SMARTWATER - PHES energy storage using end of life quarries and mines - Belgium Wallonia specific use-cases

The SMARTWATER project will generate some investigation tools to assess the feasibility of the rehabilitation of end-of-life quarries and mines into medium-sized PHES units. The project implements a holistic approach encompassing legal, environmental, economic, hydraulic, electro-mechanical, and geological aspects. The reservoir capacity and hydraulic head of most of the sites under consideration are around a few hundreds of thousand cubic meters and a few dozen meters respectively. Economic feasibility includes assessment of the cost reduction opportunities offered by such site configurations (widespread in Wallonia) and the exploration of innovative multi-service (DSO and TSO) exploitation strategies in the context of an increasing intermittent production.

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.
