ChArGED

ChArGED proposes a framework that aims to facilitate greater energy efficiency and reductions of wasted energy in public buildings. The framework leverages IoT-enabled devices to improve energy disaggregation mechanisms, whereas a social innovation process will be designed to help users understand the environmental implications of their actions. ED is the project coordinator and responsible for the application enablement platform (backend) development, as well as for the data/device/user management and complex event processing modules’ development, based on open-source tools.

FLEXITRANSTORE

FLEXITRANSTORE aims to develop a next generation of Flexible Energy Grid, to provide the technical basis for the valorization of flexibility services, enhancing the existing European Internal Energy Market. ED is the project coordinator and responsible for the development of a wholesale market platform to provide flexibility services and support cross border auctioning and trading of energy. The platform will allow national electricity markets (bidding zones) following different market models, to participate in the common market, optimizing the coordination, the security and maximizing the social welfare of the integrated market.

BENEFFICE

BENEFFICE leverages novel IoT-enabled, low-cost, “plug-and-play” devices, energy disaggregation and an innovative empowerment and rewards approach based on an alternative monetary currency, so as to change consumers’ energy consumption behavior. ED is the project coordinator and adapts its IoT-based platform of esthes.isTM to allow easy deployment and integration of sensing infrastructure, thus capturing the users’ activities related with energy consumption, and subsequently providing recommendations of changing their behavior on energy efficiency.

INTERRFACE

Under Grand Agreement Preparation. The INTERRFACE project will design, develop and exploit an Interoperable pan-European Grid Services Architecture (IEGSA) to act as the interface between the power system (TSO and DSO) and the customers and allow the seamless and coordinated operation of all stakeholders to use and procure common services. INTERRFACE will demonstrate for the first time in the power sector the added value of sharing data among all?participants in the electricity system value chain (customers, grids, market), from local, regional to EU level. It will also enable TSOs, DSOs and customers to coordinate their efforts to maximise the potential of distributed energy resources (DERs), demand aggregators and grid assets, so as to procure energy services in a cost-efficient way and create consumer benefits. The consortium consists of 42 partners from many European countries, including TSOs, DSOs, Regulator, Associations, Market Operators, Aggregators, ESCOs, Universities, etc. INTERRFACE will prove its concept through large-scale real-life demonstrators.
