integrated Smart GRID Cross-Functional Solutions for Optimized Synergetic Energy Distribution, Utilization Storage Technologies

Periodic Reporting for period 2 - inteGRIDy (integrated Smart GRID Cross-Functional Solutions for Optimized Synergetic Energy Distribution, Utilization Storage Technologies)

Okres sprawozdawczy: 2018-07-01 do 2019-06-30

inteGRIDy aims at integrating cutting-edge technologies, solutions and mechanisms in a scalable Cross-Functional Framework of replicable solutions. This framework connects existing energy networks to diverse stakeholders, with enhanced observability of both generation and consumption profiles. inteGRIDy pursues facilitating the optimal and dynamic operation of the Distribution Grid, fostering the stability of the electricity grid and coordination of distributed energy resources, Virtual Power Plants and innovative collaborative storage schemes within a continuously increased share of renewable energy.
- Integration of existing smart-metering/automation systems, with IoT infrastructure, enabling interoperability through standard APIs and efficient data collection and monitoring of grid assets.
- Novel modelling and profiling mechanisms allowing the creation of network topology and Demand Response models, together with battery cycling and charging profiles.
- Predictive algorithms enabling dynamic scenario-based simulation and multi-level forecasting for managing real-time demand and supply of energy and optimised decision making.
- Powerful and efficient visual analytics and end-user applications, using novel human machine interaction techniques.
- A security access control framework, built upon the standardization, regulatory environment for privacy and data protection.
- Innovative business models providing important tools to the energy market for dynamically involving Demand Response strategies and allowing new energy market entrants.
inteGRIDy envisions the realisation and demonstration of a solution covering the aforementioned innovations under a variety of environmental, market and societal conditions at 10 pilot and demonstration sites throughout EU.
The period covered by this document comprises a critical stage in inteGRIDy time plan. First of all, M24 was an important milestone for the project, as the final and consolidated reference architecture was released, containing the complete specifications for layers, modules and pilots, with all associated recommendations.
Building up on this, M27 was the deadline for all inteGRIDy tool developers to have the final consolidated release of the features to be deployed in pilots, adapting their technologies and algorithms to the aforementioned architecture. This milestone also coincided with the kick-off of integration activities, which will drive the joint operation of all inteGRIDy tools seamlessly and following the project architecture and recommendations.
Finally, this second period included also the official start of pilot deployment activities (WP6 and WP7). This way, all relevant project activities are currently active.
inteGRIDy is, at this point, one and a half years away from its completion. The final stage will be devoted to finalizing the integration and starting the validation and measurement activities, which will hopefully prove the appropriateness of all inteGRIDy tools and the accordance with the initial goals set.
The most immediate goal of all WPs towards the next semester will be mostly focused on the finalization of integration (WP5) deliverables and internal reports that are due in the next reporting period
