MUSE GRIDS goal is to contribute to the development of interconnected local energy networks management system for a better use of synergies between those networks, maximizing efficiency in operation and reducing costs, energy losses and CO2 emissions. Through these management strategies, it is also intended to help local communities gain energy independence from the main network by promoting self-consumption based on renewable sources of energy.
The developments will be validated in real environments thanks to demonstrators from the cities of Osimo (Italy) and Oud-Hervelee (Belgium) that are integrated into the project.
- To demonstrate the interaction of different energy networks using the flexibility of energy facilities and innovative energy management systems.
- To develop an intelligent management system that integrates the different energy storage and production systems.
- To develop user involvement strategies through local energy communities.
- To demonstrate the intelligent management system in the cities of Osimo and Oud-Heverlee.
- To install of thermal storage systems in the city of Osimo.
- To determine the replicability of developments through virtual demonstrators in India and Spain.
- Two demonstrators (Osimo and Oud-Heverlee) of the optimal multi-network management system.
- Tool for planning and management of energy resources.
- Recommendations on business models and policies focused on consumers that promote the transition towards the creation of energy communities and autonomous micro networks in isolated energy networks.

Smart cities projects:
SGA1-NZC has as an objective give support to 100 cities selected to be intelligent and climate neutral by 2030.
ASCEND aims to accelerate the implementation of Positive Clean Energy Districts (PCEDs) for the transformation of cities towards climate neutrality and social justice in Europe. To this end, Ascend will carry out the following measures.
SUPERSHINE project is based on the renvoation of 3 pilot lighthouse districts focusing on the needs of the social housing inhabitants and on social assets generating high social capital and cohesion.
The project has as main objective to quantify the impact of the massive deployment of autonomous and connected mobility solutions in Europe through the development of a tool based in systems dynamic that will be build as of citizens and organizations perceptions collected in co-creation activities.
NEUTRALPATH has an objective to demonstrate the deployment of clean and positive energy districts (PCED) designed through participative processes focused on the citizen and that contributes significantly to the transformation of cities towards climate-neutrality at the time horizon 2030.
REHOUSE project has as main objective the development and demonstration, up to TRL7, of 8 renovation innovative technologies packages, designed for covering a wide range of building renovation actions, allowing overcome the actual barriers that makes the renovation rates in Europe being low.
NetZeroCities recognisses the need for cities to develop specific strategies that are tailores to suit local and regional contexts, and will support them by aggregated and co-desgined services and thematic expertise through a one-stop-shop platform accessible to all cities through an online portal (Mission Platform)
ATELIER is a demonstration project whose main objective is the design, implementation and validation of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) in Amsterdam and Bilbao
MAKING-CITY’s main objective is to achieve low-carbon cities thanks to the development of strategies aimed at transforming the urban energy system.
MAtchUP is a demonstration project whose main objective is the implementation of innovative technologies in the energy, mobility and ICT sectors
The mySMARTLife project seeks to create sustainable and ecological cities, increasing energy efficiency, the use of renewable energy and reducing CO2 emissions.
Nature4Cities’ objective is to improve decision-making in cities with collaborative nature-based models that can be integrated into urban planning in cities.
SmartEnCity aims at a comprehensive sustainable urban regeneration model based on innovative technological solutions for energy, transport and ICTs
REMOURBAN’s objective is to develop and validate in three lighthouse cities (Valladolid-Spain, Nottingham-UK and Tepebaşı-Turkey) an urban, holistic and replicable regeneration model that facilitates the process of transforming urban environments into more sustainable and intelligent areas.
The CITyFiED European project, co-financed by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Program, aims to develop an integrated strategy to adapt existing cities to more sustainable and smart cities.
