R&D Projects with EU added-value are invited to be as usual the main contributors to our InnoGrid annual appointment by presenting their work, achievements and recommendations.

  1. Flexitranstore FLEXITRANSTORE aims to contribute to the evolution towards a pan-European transmission network with high flexibility and high interconnection levels. This will facilitate the transformation of the current energy production mix by hosting an increasing share of renewables. Novel smart grid technologies, control and storage methods and new market approaches will be developed, installed, demonstrated and tested introducing flexibility to the European power system.
  2. Farcross To achieve its energy goals, EU needs to establish a geographically large market by improving its cross-border electricity interconnections. To this end, FARCROSS aims to address this challenge by connecting major stakeholders of the energy value chain and demonstrating integrated hardware and software solutions that will facilitate the “unlocking” of the resources for the cross-border electricity flows and regional cooperation.
  3. Platone The Platone Project - PLATform for Operation of distribution NEtworks - is a four-year Horizon 2020 funded European project. Platone aims at defining new approaches to increase the observability of renewable energy resources and of the less predictable loads while exploiting their flexibility. Our consortium of 12 partners from Belgium, Germany, Greece and Italy will develop advanced management platforms to unlock grid flexibility and to realize an open and non-discriminatory market, linking users, aggregators and operators.
  4. InterConnect InterConnect gathers 50 European entities to develop and demonstrate advanced solutions for connecting and converging digital homes and buildings with the electricity sector. The project places the foundation for the future of smart energy management solutions by seven connected large-scale test-sites in Portugal, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece and France.
  5. Interrface INTERRFACE project will develop an Interoperable pan-European Grid Services Architecture (IEGSA) to act as the interface between TSOs and DSOs
  6. Onenet The project OneNet (One Network for Europe) aims to create a fully replicable and scalable architecture that enables the whole European electrical system to operate as a single system.
  7. CoordiNet The purpose of CoordiNet is establish different collaboration schemes between TSOs, DSOs and consumers to contribute to the development of a smart, secure and more resilient energy system.
  8. EUniversal The EUniversal project, funded by the European Union, aims to develop a universal approach on the use of flexibility by Distribution System Operators (DSO) and their interaction with the new flexibility markets, enabled through the development of the concept of the Universal Market Enabling Interface (UMEI) – a unique approach to foster interoperability across Europe.
