Atos paves the way for flexible and sustainable energy flow in Europe

Madrid, Spain, 12 Could 2020

Atos, a international leader in digital transformation, announces its participation in the FLEXIGRID venture, which aims to boost the operation of the distribution grid – creating it more adaptable, trustworthy and expense-successful, by the advancement of revolutionary alternatives. Its goal is to add to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the 2030 EU climate objectives when making ready the grid to the enhance in renewable energy. As aspect of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 system, FLEXIGRID was initiated mid-2019 and will previous for four years. It provides alongside one another a consortium of 16 companions led by the Investigate Centre for Power Assets and Usage (CIRCE) in Spain.

In purchase to assure that the venture is productive across all EU networks, eight various use circumstances at four demo web-sites (Spain, Greece, Italy and Croatia) have been chosen, addressing the most prevalent EU distribution grid problems. Atos will provide and integrate its open up resource Framework for Utilities and Products and services (FUSE) for all venture activities and demonstration web-sites, connecting the facts created by authentic end users and teams with the revolutionary providers made in the venture for the best possible overall flexibility.

Enabling overall flexibility for long run distribution grid

The energy industry is at this time transitioning from a centralized process with passive end users into a adaptable community of energetic end users showcasing energy communities. FLEXIGRID will acquire a established of alternatives to tackle the challenges that the electrical power grid is anticipated to encounter as a result of the escalating participation of variable renewable energies in the energy process.

The new instruments will allow for the distribution community to purpose safely and securely and stably when a massive aspect of variable renewable electrical power sources is linked to reduced and medium voltage networks. Precisely, by the advancement of revolutionary hardware and software alternatives, the venture will do the job on:

  • Maximizing the grid internet hosting potential of renewables
  • Increasing the observability, controllability and automation of the community devices for the enhancement of both equally the security and resilience of the grid
  • Mitigating shorter and very long-expression congestions in the dispersed grid
  • Guaranteeing the interoperability and compatibility of the made alternatives with various platforms employed by European Dispersed Procedure Operators (DSOs)

In this context, the energy platform FUSE will make accessible the most current systems (Significant Info, AI, IoT, Blockchain and FIWARE) to go one move even further in the direction of sustainability, when offering a impressive software platform that presents community visibility and regulate, approach automation and business collaboration for alternatives across the energy and utility price chain. Atos will use the platform to aid the replicability of providers and alternatives, integrating various hardware and software alternatives to entirely exploit the facts supplied by regional and dispersed energy methods.

“The decentralization of the energy industry creates a complicated environment with various actors included, where everybody focuses on the identical goal, but has their individual capabilities, requirements and traits on
