An EU-funded project has developed nine innovative products to help integrate homes and businesses into a smart European electricity grid. The aim is to make green energy smarter, easier and cheaper to use at home and work - good for the pocket, the planet and Europe's energy security.
The EU Horizon 2020 project WiseGRID is preparing to start demonstration projects at five pilot sites in Belgium, Italy, Spain and Greece. The project aims to empower citizens with a combination of smart technologies that will also allow distributed renewable energy sources (RES) to be efficiently managed in the grid. Starting this summer, it will demonstrate virtual power plants, vehicle-to-grid, storage systems and decentralized control automation of the distribution network.
