Energy decarbonisation system is a priority. To achieve this, the penetration of clean energy needs to be facilitated. The ENFLATE project applies technologies on data-driven energy and non-energy services, which it will replicate in different geographies and climates, considering different consumer needs. It proposes consumer-centric flexibility platforms and will test them in Bulgary, Spain, Greece, Sweden and Switzerland, involving local consumers, authorities, service providers, manufacturers and the scientific community. Efficient business models will be developed, combining energy services with health and mobilty services.
- Design, implement and demonstrate an interoperable, collaborative and secure platform of tools, with a multi-vector energy approach, building on existing digital platforms from previous research projects.
- Develop and demonstrate data-driven digital tools that enable multi-energy carriers to participate in flexibility markets.
- Design and demonstrate cost-effective digital solutions and business models to engage consumers, prosumers, aggregators, asset owners that provide flexibility with a collaborative approach, all for a socially just energy transformation
- Establish, demonstrate and evaluate new flexibility market designs, tested in different countries, linked to existing national markets and the European Energy Exchange.
- Propose regulatory vpathway to incorporate consumer-centred markets and new business models.
- Analysis of possible flexibility services that can be implemented in the project, based on a review of similar thematic projects and services present in European markets. Evaluation of potential services to be implemented in each of the project´s demonstrators, based on the available technologies.
- Analysis of the digitalisation needs to involve all the needed actors (TSOs, DSOs, aggregators, energy providers, charge operators, etc.)
- Development, implementation and validation of a modelling tool for the generation, storage and flexible load assets available at the Láchar demonstrator (distribution network belonging to DSO CUERVA). This tool is use to predict flexibility that those grid can offer. Validation will be realised in 3 use-cases: (1) Resolution of surges and congestions in the grid, thus ensuring grid stability in the face of renewable energy integration; (2)Provision of ancillary servicesto the grid.To this end, the available generation and storage will be optimisde in order to offer the necessary flexibility to meet the TSO´s needs.
- Development, implementation and validation of a tool for the detection of non-technical energy losses (fradulent use), and more specifically,the detection of squatters. This tool will be validated on the Láchar network (belonging to the DSO CUERVA).
- Services list that will be implemented on the project demonstrators.
- Active modelling tool (generation and storage) and flexibility prediction for the Láchar network (Granada).
- Non-technical loss detection tool to identify the presence of squatters in the network of Láchar (Granada).
- Research in control algortihms for the flexible demand, response demand and its participation on markets.

Smart Grids projects:
D-HYFROFLEX seeks research into technological innovations in hydropower plants in search of improved efficiency and sustainability and hydropower competitiveness in modern electricity markets. The project will develop tools for the digital renovation of existing hydroelectric plants based on sensors, digital twins, artificial intelligence, hydrolyser modelling and image processing.
SINNOGENES project aims to develop the Storage INNOvations (SINNO) energy toolkit, a complete framework of methodologies, tools and technologies that will enable the grid integration of innovative storage solutions beyond the state-of-the-art, while demonstrating sustainability, technical performance, lifetime, nondependency on location geogrpahical particularities and cost.
PISTIS brings forward a reference federated data sharing/trading and monetisation platform for secure, trusted and controlled exchange and usage of proprietary data assets and data-driven intelligence.
CERFlex project consist on research in development and TIC solutions implementation moods that help to the deployment in a new concept of energy communities, especially focus on rural environment, facilitating a decentralized management of the energy interchange, the maximum utilisation of the renewable resources and a sustainable consume of the available resources.
AGISTIN will enable industrial users to rapidly deploy renewable energy through advanced integration of innovative energy storage technologies. The rapid decarbonisation of industry through electrification, the growth of renewables and the need for grid stability represents a unique opportunity for new forms of storage and schemes for grid integration.
GEDERA is a research project whose objective is the study and development of a multi-agent architecture that allows the development of applications for the smart grid, focusing the project on the management of flexibility in buildings.
EVPLAN looks for developing tools that use as strategic decision making base that benefit users and future consumers of the electric vehicle
The proliferation of renewable energies and the electric charges that operates with continuous current originates a growing interest in electric grids that operates with continuous current. This is due to the higher efficiency, security, flexibility and feasability that grids have than those ones that operates with alternate current.
The MUSE GRIDS project wants to contribute to the development of interconnected local energy network management systems to make better use of the synergies between these networks.
INTERPRETER will overcome these limitations by means of a modular grid management solution consisting of a set of 10 software applications for an optimal design, planning, operation and maintenance of the electricity grid
The TALENT project aims to increase the flexibility of the electrical system by reducing the cost associated with the integration of batteries in the electrical network.
The SocialRES project seeks to increase scientific knowledge about the non-technological aspects that prevent the adoption of social energy alternatives such as cooperatives, aggregators or crowdfunding platforms.
The objective of the Optigrid project is the research and development of concepts and services that allow greater flexibility in electricity generation and demand.
Urban water networks could became a source of renewable energy. Energy harvest in water industry using micro-hydropower technology.
HPC Ongrid project collaborates with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) in the develop and programming of different components of a hybrid generation plant controller.
