The European Commission´s Long-Term Strategy describes a number of pathways that reach between 80% and 100% decarbonisation levels. In every pathway a high level of direct and indirect electrification is envisaged, supported by a large-scale deployment of RES. The European power system has to address the residual load variability, on all timescales: from frequency response to inter-year flexibility. The main candidate solutions to provide flexibility are networks, demand-response, dispatchable and flexible power generation technologies, and energy storage. The appropriate deployment of innovative energy storage technologies is of primary importance for the clean energy transition. Sustainability and circular economy approach for storage innovations will minimize the environmental footprint and enhance the overarching efforts for achieving the European Green Deal targets.
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, non-dependency on location geographical particularities and cost. It will develop successful energy storage business cases and systems and deploy them in innovative and ´green` energy systems at different scales and timeframes. SINNOGENES will target the effective integration of innovative energy storage systems and value chains at the interface of renewable energies and specific demand sectors, while enduring the compatibility of systems and standards of distributed energy storage for participation in flexibility markets. Six pilot projects will take place in Portugal, Spain, Germany, Greece and Switzerland while a detailed scalability and replicability analysis will prove the wide impact of SINNOGENES project innovations at pan European level.

Smart Grids projects:
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.
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.
