    The ambition of the STREAM project (STREAM) is the creation of an innovative and robust flexibility eSTREAM project aims to create an innovative and robust flexibility ecosystem (“STREAM Ecosystem”) on the low voltage (LV) grid side of existing power markets connecting data, technologies, stakeholders and markets, thus facilitating the flexibility provision. A variety of benefits for both technical- and non-technical aspects of energy services supporting power market and power grid operations will be created. STREAM will empower data from flexible devices and support creation of other citizen services through a User-centric Approach to improve their acceptance. The exploitation of both types of services will benefit from new business models, built upon local LV flexibility markets and novel barter-like mechanism, developed in STREAM. Presently, such services and business models don’t exist in either established- or developing power markets. The STREAM ecosystem covers their implementation, includes various stakeholder groups on all levels of power markets, from small-scale end-users, energy communities, ESCOs, service providers, to market- and system operators. To achieve the goals, STREAM consortium comprises relevant actors to capture the entire flexibility value chain within STREAM ecosystem from end users, energy communities to service providers, flexibility services providers, market operators, DSOs, and TSO, complemented by technology and research partners. The latter will supply knowledge in a form of STREAM tools that will enable the realization of STREAM ecosystem. They will be adapted, deployed, calibrated, and demonstrated in the 4 STREAM pilots that serve as a basis for benchmarking of STREAM ideas. They cover geographical, economic, size and type diversity of the consumers. While complementary, the pilots focus on a specific part of STREAM Ecosystem. The pilot partners have all the essential roles and authority to carry out the specified activities.

    The de-centralization of electricity generation requires equally de-centralized and affordable solutions to integrate more RES, increase the security of supply and decarbonize the EU energy future. The combination and unique integration of de-centralized storage with technologies for local energy system optimization, including demand response, electric vehicle charging optimization and synergies with other energy vectors at the local level, can offer a cost-efficient pathway (in comparison to high-CAPEX grid upgrade investments) for local energy systems optimization in presence of high volumes of volatile and intermittent RES, since huge amounts of currently non-utilized flexibility can be unleashed to ensure optimal congestion management and effective tackling of local instabilities and imbalances. MERLON introduces an Integrated Modular Local Energy Management Framework for the Holistic Operational Optimization of Local Energy Systems in presence of high shares of volatile distributed RES. Optimization in MERLON applies to multiple levels spanning optimal coordination of local generation, with demand and storage flexibility, as well as flexibility offered by EVs and CHP Plants to facilitate maximum RES integration, avoidance of curtailment and satisfaction of balancing/ ancillary grid needs. MERLON will enable the realization of novel business models, allowing local energy communities to introduce themselves in local flexibility markets, while paving the way for the realization of novel Microgrid-as-a-Service models, assigning to local DSOs the role of “Aggregator of Aggregators” for the provision of added value services to the overlay distribution grid. It equips local stakeholders (DSOs, energy cooperatives, prosumers) with innovative and highly effective tools for the establishment of robust business practices to exploit their microgrids and dynamic VPPs as balancing and ancillary assets toward grid stability and alleviation of network constraints.

  • Funder: EC Project Code: 101096508
    Overall Budget: 7,002,540 EURFunder Contribution: 5,999,600 EUR

    With its “Clean Energy for all Europeans” package (CEP), the European Commission formally recognised and instrumentally brought forward community energy projects, including definitions for “Renewable Energy Communities” (RECs) and for “Citizen Energy Communities” (CECs). The new concepts introduced in the CEP set the course for a more active role of EU citizens in the energy markets. To fully concretize the benefits envisioned by the CEP, a myriad of barriers needs to be overcome and progress needs to be done to clarify and streamline the concepts of REC and CEC, enabling its uptake by all interested citizens. Motivated by that challenge, COMMUNITAS will promote energy citizenship, enabling citizens to take control of their own path towards sustainability by becoming an active element of the energy markets. The project will deliver a Knowledge Base that will provide users with technical, administrative, and legal information on ECs, streamlining the creation and expansion of this concept. COMMUNITAS will also deliver an innovative set of tools - capitalizing on technologies such as IoT, Blockchain and Cloud Computing - to unlock citizens’ active participation in energy markets and communities (all integrated into an open, digital “one-stop-shop” COMMUNITAS Core Platform (CCP)), allowing EC members to have an aggregated position in the energy markets or explore ancillary services using different energy assets or load profiles of the community. As a project that aims to position citizens in the centre of energy markets, COMMUNITAS has citizens at the centre of its own approach: citizens will be involved in Social and Policy Labs throughout the whole project, in order to frequently factor in their feedback, wishes, needs into the core developments of the project.

    The ever-increasing use of building monitoring and control systems has created an opportunity for data-driven approaches in the entire construction sector. At the same time, interaction and interoperability among data platforms remain a challenging issue. MODERATE will formalize a set of procedures and techniques that enable building owners, policymakers, facility managers, utility companies, etc., to openly share their data, gain insights, and make decisions while complying with regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Moreover, MODERATE will enable uniform access to heterogeneous data sources on buildings' performance, usually dispersed in several non-interoperable data silos. Although several projects have recently emerged to address the problem of defining a modular data architecture, they lack: - A protocol for data sharing and anonymization, complying with the rules defined by the GDPR while avoiding losing the statistical properties that make them valuable. - A solution enabling data owners to openly share their datasets while profiting both economically and in terms of knowledge on their data. - A fully open platform. Commonly, most of the results (data, algorithms, software, etc.) of a project are owned by partners within the consortium, making it very difficult to use them later without their permission. MODERATE will develop an open platform, embracing leading-edge technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), blockchain/distributed ledger technologies, the internet of things (IoT), and many more. This platform will enable its users to analyze real-time building data from various building systems and provide insight into the many dimensions of a building's performance. The use of synthetic data generation techniques, not yet widely applied in the construction industry, is one of the elements that allow open data sharing, enabling more reliable services and generating business opportunities.

  • Funder: EC Project Code: 731205
    Overall Budget: 17,595,500 EURFunder Contribution: 13,854,200 EUR

    WiseGRID has two intertwined and equally important strategic goals: on the one hand, it aims at successfully putting in the market, within a horizon of 24 months after project completion, a set of solutions and technologies which increase the smartness, stability and security of an open, consumer-centric European energy grid, with an enhanced use of storage technologies and a highly increased share of RES. On the other hand, the project intends to have a significant impact in the business and innovation activities of the consortium -with a planned ROI for the partners of less than 30 months after commercialisation of WiseGRID products and services starts- and the European sector at large, contributing to the creation of jobs, the access to new energy services of citizens and public/private organisations, the saving of CO2, and the increase of of RES, among other impacts. The achievement of these strategic goals will involve the four aspects addressed by LCE-02-2016: (a) Demand Response, (b) Smartening the Distribution Grid, (c) Demonstrating Energy Storage Technologies and (d) the Smart Integration of Grid Users from Transport. WiseGRID technologies and solutions will be packed within 9 different products, the impact of which will be demonstrated under real life conditions in 4 large scale demonstrators –in Belgium, Italy, Spain and Greece-. In order to facilitate the assessment of the performance, transferability and scalability of these solutions, the demonstrations will be conducted following 7 high level use cases.
