Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovationprogramme, the WiseGRID project will develop a set of 9 solutions to improve the electricity grid and empowercustomers. It promises to make Europe’s electricity gridsmarter, open and more customer orientated. This is done by using digital technology to enable a two-way communication between the electricity provider and its customers. The project aims to support provision of cleaner and more affordable energy through improved demand response mechanisms, and greater use of electro-mobility, renewable energy and related storage technologies.
The products include platforms for monitoring and managing
infrastructure, applications to support smarter energy use,
tools to optimise electric vehicle charging and supply
renewable energy, as well as services for marketing unused
generation capacity. They target consumers, ‘prosumers’
(people who produce and consume energy) and electric vehicle fleet operators, among other groups.
WiseGRID’s solutions will be tested and demonstrated for at least 15 months under real-life conditions at 4 sites in Belgium, Greece, Italy and Spain in cooperation with renewable energy cooperatives and distribution service operators. Demonstrations will involve some 1,700 consumers using energy systems consisting of batteries, heat pumps, solar, wind and hydropower, as well as electric vehicles and charging stations. The project, which started at the end of 2016, will run until April 2020.

WiseGRID is attending the European Utility Week in Paris. Join us there!
The European Utility Week is a platform for achieving a fully integrated and interconnected electricity system and market in Europe. It hosts the environment for all key players in the smart energy ecosystem to come together and discuss European strategy to achieve a smooth transition towards a low carbon energy supply.
The 3-day programme will see an energy trilemma of security, equity and sustainability across an end-to-end European energy experience.Read more »
The Romanian Energy Center Association (CRE) has successfully organised the 10th Consortium Meeting of the Horizon 2020 European Project "WiseGRID - Wide scale demonstration of Integrated Solutions and business models for European smart GRID", coordinated by the Spanish Group ETRA, on 22nd – 23rd October 2019 in Sinaia, Romania. WiseGRID will deliver to the European Commission, project partners and stakeholders, a set of solutions and technologies for developing intelligence, increasing the stability and security of European electricity networks, through various methods including energy storage technologies, the widespread use of electric vehicles and integration of a share of at least 50% of energy from renewable sources (RES). The project started on November 1st, 2016 and will lasts for 42 months.Read more »
