Leading Companies and Research Partners, inlcuding EnergyVille, meet in Dublin for Launch of EU-SysFlex

10-11-2017

Dublin, November 10 - Over 100 representatives from Europe’s leading power companies, universities and research and technology partners met in Dublin this week for the inaugural meeting of the EU project Pan-European system with an efficient coordinated use of flexibilities for the integration of a large share of RES (EU-SysFlex).

 

The meeting was hosted by the Ireland’s electricity grid operator EirGrid, who acts as the overall project co-ordinator, with French group EDF acting as technical co-ordinator.

The EU-SysFlex will carry out research into the deployment of renewable energy on electricity grids across Europe and has received €20 million of funding from the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 under the call: H2020-LCE-2016-2017. It will run for four years until 2021.

The project involves 34 organisations from 15 countries across Europe and includes electricity transmission system operators, distribution system operators, technology providers, manufacturers, universities and research centres.

The aim of the project is to create a long-term roadmap for the large-scale integration of renewable energy on electricity grids as well as providing practical assistance to power system operators across Europe. 

The project team will also identify improvements to European market design, regulation, operational practices and enhanced system tools.

Within this project, EnergyVille leads the research activities on market design and regulation and develops decision support tools for system operators to move forward in the energy transition.
