Real proven solutions to enable active demand and distributed generation flexible integration, through a fully controllable LOW Voltage (LV) and medium voltage distribution grid] project is developing and validating solutions to enable the implementation of advanced functionalities over existing technology, to form a truly integrated intelligent system to be ready for operating the grid of the future. With this project an improvement in the monitoring and controllability of LOW Voltage and medium voltage grids is expected, in order to handle the technical challenges associated with the integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER), as end-users get closer to the energy system (e.g. increase consumer participation in the market). To achieve all this UPGRID relies on four big demonstrators which are in operation now and reporting useful information. UPGRID is a HORIZON 2020 EC funded project.
