The TALENT project pursues to increase the flexibility of the electric system by reducing the costs associated to the integration of batteries in the grid. To achieve it, three new technological elements will be developed: modular and scalable power electronic topologies, integration of new power electronic devices designed for specific voltage level, and finally systems to manage energy systems that are interoperable and able to be used as a service.
- To develop power electronics for batteries in the 400-800V range, 5% more efficient and 20% less costly.
- To develop power electronics for 1.5 kV batteries based on new IGBT and FWD, 15% less costly.
- To develop power electronics for 3 kV batteries based on new MOSFET devices, 20% less expensive.
- To develop a new control architecture, combining cloud-based and local components that will allow to reduce cost in the integration of batteries in virtual power plants.
- To coordinate the project.
- To collaborate in the development and implementation of the cloud-based control architecture.
- To collaborate in the development of a battery digital twin.
- Power electronics for medium and high voltage batteries that will be between 15% and 20% less costly that current market available products.
- Cloud-based control architecture for energy systems that will include a battery digital twin to improve battery management.

Smart grid projects:
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 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.
