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

Madrid, Spain, 12 May well 2020

Atos, a worldwide chief in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the FLEXIGRID venture, which aims to increase the procedure of the distribution grid – earning it extra adaptable, dependable and cost-economical, as a result of the improvement of ground breaking solutions. Its purpose is to lead to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the 2030 EU local climate aims although planning the grid to the maximize in renewable electrical power. As aspect of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 system, FLEXIGRID was initiated mid-2019 and will final for four years. It delivers with each other a consortium of sixteen companions led by the Research Centre for Energy Means and Intake (CIRCE) in Spain.

In order to be certain that the venture is productive across all EU networks, eight diverse use cases at four demo web pages (Spain, Greece, Italy and Croatia) have been picked, addressing the most common EU distribution grid challenges. Atos will give and integrate its open up source Framework for Utilities and Services (FUSE) for all venture actions and demonstration web pages, connecting the facts generated by actual consumers and groups with the ground breaking providers developed in the venture for optimum adaptability.

Enabling adaptability for foreseeable future distribution grid

The electrical power market place is now transitioning from a centralized method with passive consumers into a adaptable community of lively consumers showcasing electrical power communities. FLEXIGRID will develop a set of solutions to handle the challenges that the electrical energy grid is predicted to deal with as a outcome of the raising participation of variable renewable energies in the electrical power method.

The new tools will make it possible for the distribution community to operate safely and stably when a massive aspect of variable renewable electrical energy sources is related to small and medium voltage networks. Especially, as a result of the improvement of ground breaking components and software program solutions, the venture will do the job on:

  • Boosting the grid hosting capacity of renewables
  • Raising the observability, controllability and automation of the community methods for the improvement of both the safety and resilience of the grid
  • Mitigating shorter and long-time period congestions in the dispersed grid
  • Ensuring the interoperability and compatibility of the developed solutions with diverse platforms utilized by European Distributed Technique Operators (DSOs)

In this context, the electrical power platform FUSE will make available the most recent systems (Major Data, AI, IoT, Blockchain and FIWARE) to go just one step further in the direction of sustainability, although offering a potent software program platform that delivers community visibility and management, process automation and business enterprise collaboration for solutions across the electrical power and utility price chain. Atos will use the platform to facilitate the replicability of providers and solutions, integrating diverse components and software program solutions to absolutely exploit the facts furnished by neighborhood and dispersed electrical power means.

“The decentralization of the electrical power market place creates a complex natural environment with diverse actors associated, in which anyone focuses on the exact same purpose, but has their have features, requirements and features on the way in the direction of a sustainable foreseeable future.” explains Juan Sancho, Energy Sector R&D Engineer at Atos in Iberia.  “Leveraging Atos’ in depth knowledge in the electrical power sector, FUSE integrates the most recent solutions and systems to facilitate performance and sustainability, paving the way to the digitalization of the sector and a extra sustainable foreseeable future”
