Madrid, Spain, 12 May 2020

Atos, a international chief in digital transformation, announces its participation in the FLEXIGRID project, which aims to enhance the operation of the distribution grid – building it much more adaptable, reliable and price tag-economical, by the enhancement of impressive remedies. Its purpose is to lead to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the 2030 EU local climate goals while planning the grid to the raise in renewable power. As section of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, FLEXIGRID was initiated mid-2019 and will last for 4 many years. It brings collectively a consortium of 16 partners led by the Investigation Centre for Power Means and Intake (CIRCE) in Spain.

In get to make sure that the project is successful across all EU networks, eight distinctive use conditions at 4 demo web pages (Spain, Greece, Italy and Croatia) have been selected, addressing the most common EU distribution grid troubles. Atos will deliver and integrate its open up supply Framework for Utilities and Providers (FUSE) for all project actions and demonstration web pages, connecting the info produced by real users and groups with the impressive services formulated in the project for ideal adaptability.

Enabling adaptability for future distribution grid

The power marketplace is presently transitioning from a centralized procedure with passive users into a adaptable community of lively users featuring power communities. FLEXIGRID will produce a set of remedies to handle the troubles that the electrical power grid is envisioned to experience as a result of the rising participation of variable renewable energies in the power procedure.

The new instruments will permit the distribution community to function properly and stably when a massive section of variable renewable electrical power sources is connected to reduced and medium voltage networks. Precisely, by the enhancement of impressive hardware and software package remedies, the project will work on:

  • Boosting the grid hosting potential of renewables
  • Escalating the observability, controllability and automation of the community systems for the advancement of both the protection and resilience of the grid
  • Mitigating shorter and extended-time period congestions in the distributed grid
  • Guaranteeing the interoperability and compatibility of the formulated remedies with distinctive platforms employed by European Distributed Procedure Operators (DSOs)

In this context, the power system FUSE would make accessible the newest systems (Significant Information, AI, IoT, Blockchain and FIWARE) to go just one phase further to sustainability, while offering a impressive software package system that provides community visibility and handle, method automation and small business collaboration for remedies across the power and utility value chain. Atos will use the system to facilitate the replicability of services and remedies, integrating distinctive hardware and software package remedies to entirely exploit the info delivered by nearby and distributed power methods.

“The decentralization of the power marketplace produces a intricate environment with distinctive actors involved, exactly where absolutely everyone focuses on the similar purpose, but has their have features, necessities and traits on the way to a sustainable future.” describes [title, function] at Atos.  “Leveraging Atos’ considerable knowledge in the power sector, FUSE integrates the newest remedies and systems to facilitate effectiveness and sustainability, paving the way to the digitalization of the sector and a much more sustainable future”
