Project description

New multi-energy grids on the block

The upgrade of electricity grids is vital in order to ensure long-term energy security. Thus, the transformation of the energy system into a new multi-energy and multi-consumer concept is top priority on the EU agenda. The EU-funded EUniversal project will enable the transformation of the electricity grid by resolving existing limitations in the energy system through the introduction of a universal market enabling interface (UMEI). This will ensure that grids become capable of accommodating future scenarios. The project’s aim is a new multi-energy and multi-consumer concept guaranteeing sustainable, secure and stable electricity supply. It will develop and validate a set of market-oriented flexibility management services in a real environment at three sites, in Germany, Poland and Portugal.
