H2020: EU Research and Innovation

The vision of the Energy Union put forward by the European Commission in February 2015 is of an integrated continent-wide energy system where strong, innovative and competitive companies can develop the industrial products and technology needed to deliver energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. Citizens should be able to take ownership of the transition and participate actively in the market. Both the Energy Union and the Digital Single Market focus on tangible benefits for the consumer.

With the strong belief that innovation is an investment in our future, the European Commission is supporting via Horizon 2020 - the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever – breakthrough close to market projects in the area of Smart Grids and Energy Storage, which have the potential to contribute to a successful digitally supported energy transition.To complement individual project's work, the BRIDGE initiative offers a discussion forum to the currently running Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage projects, to create a structured view on cross-cutting issues which are encountered by the projects and might constitute obstacles to innovation.

InterFlex : European energy players join their forces to foster the energy transition

In a fast-paced and competitive world, modernization is a priority that requires Energy actors to explore new concepts. In particular, DSOs must find ways to optimize electric power systems while integrating increasing shares of renewables (more than 50% by 2030) in a stable and secure way.The InterFlex project, as a response to the Low Carbon Energy LCE-02-2016 call, investigates the interactions between flexibilities provided by energy market players and the distribution grid. Interflex has brought together 20 partners across the European Union (5 DSOs, equipment manufacturers, research institutes) to explore flexibility solutions such as Demand Response, cross energy services, energy storage and the overall smartening of the distribution grid.
