Madrid, Spain, 12 May well 2020

Atos, a world wide chief in digital transformation, announces its participation in the FLEXIGRID task, which aims to make improvements to the procedure of the distribution grid – building it extra adaptable, responsible and charge-productive, as a result of the improvement of ground breaking solutions. Its purpose is to add to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the 2030 EU weather aims though getting ready the grid to the enhance in renewable strength. As part of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, FLEXIGRID was initiated mid-2019 and will very last for 4 yrs. It delivers jointly a consortium of 16 associates led by the Exploration Centre for Vitality Sources and Consumption (CIRCE) in Spain.

In purchase to be certain that the task is powerful throughout all EU networks, 8 various use conditions at 4 demo web-sites (Spain, Greece, Italy and Croatia) have been selected, addressing the most frequent EU distribution grid issues. Atos will give and integrate its open supply Framework for Utilities and Solutions (FUSE) for all task things to do and demonstration web-sites, connecting the facts generated by serious end users and teams with the ground breaking products and services created in the task for optimum overall flexibility.

Enabling overall flexibility for future distribution grid

The strength marketplace is at this time transitioning from a centralized procedure with passive end users into a adaptable network of active end users showcasing strength communities. FLEXIGRID will establish a established of solutions to address the challenges that the electrical power grid is expected to facial area as a consequence of the increasing participation of variable renewable energies in the strength procedure.

The new applications will make it possible for the distribution network to functionality safely and securely and stably when a significant part of variable renewable electrical power resources is related to very low and medium voltage networks. Exclusively, as a result of the improvement of ground breaking hardware and program solutions, the task will function on:

  • Maximizing the grid internet hosting ability of renewables
  • Raising the observability, controllability and automation of the network methods for the improvement of both the safety and resilience of the grid
  • Mitigating short and very long-expression congestions in the distributed grid
  • Making sure the interoperability and compatibility of the created solutions with various platforms employed by European Distributed Process Operators (DSOs)

In this context, the strength system FUSE makes accessible the most recent technologies (Significant Info, AI, IoT, Blockchain and FIWARE) to go one phase even more in direction of sustainability, though offering a strong program system that delivers network visibility and handle, method automation and organization collaboration for solutions throughout the strength and utility worth chain. Atos will use the system to aid the replicability of products and services and solutions, integrating various hardware and program solutions to entirely exploit the facts delivered by regional and distributed strength sources.

“The decentralization of the strength marketplace makes a sophisticated environment with various actors concerned, where by all people focuses on the exact purpose, but has their individual capabilities, requirements and features on the way in direction of a sustainable future.” explains Juan Sancho, Vitality Sector R&D Engineer at Atos in Iberia.  “Leveraging Atos’ considerable encounter in the strength sector, FUSE integrates the most recent solutions and technologies to aid performance and sustainability, paving the way to the digitalization of the sector and a extra sustainable future”
