The WiseGRID project provides a set of solutions, technologies and business models which increase the smartness, stability and security of an open, consumer-centric European energy grid and provide cleaner and more affordable energy for European citizens, through an enhanced use of storage technologies and electro-mobility and a highly increased share of Renewable Energy Resources. It aims to deliver the tools and business models that will facilitate the creation of an open market and enable all energy stakeholders to play an active role towards a democratic energy transition.
WiseGRID technologies and solutions will be packed within 9 different products, involving more than 1700 users –600 of which are corporate users or SMEs-, 60 batteries –totalling more than 300KWh of installed capacity-, 50 heat pumps – totalling more than 160kWh of installed capacity-, 180 EV, 40 charging stations and more than 70MWh of RES –PV, Wind Turbines and Hydro. In order to facilitate the assessment of the performance, transferability and scalability of these solutions, the demonstrations will be conducted following 7 high level use cases.
The project consortium is led by the Spanish company ETRA I+D and consists of 21 partners including electric cooperatives, distribution system operators, technological providers, energy providers, legal advisors and research institutes, from Belgium, Greece, France, Spain, Romania, Germany, Italy and the UK.
