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

Madrid, Spain, 12 May 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the FLEXIGRID challenge, which aims to enhance the procedure of the distribution grid – generating it far more versatile, trusted and charge-efficient, via the growth of modern options. Its purpose is to lead to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the 2030 EU local climate goals although making ready the grid to the improve in renewable strength. As portion of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 application, FLEXIGRID was initiated mid-2019 and will past for four years. It provides alongside one another a consortium of sixteen associates led by the Exploration Centre for Power Resources and Consumption (CIRCE) in Spain.

In buy to be certain that the challenge is successful throughout all EU networks, eight distinctive use cases at four demo web-sites (Spain, Greece, Italy and Croatia) have been picked, addressing the most typical EU distribution grid difficulties. Atos will provide and combine its open supply Framework for Utilities and Expert services (FUSE) for all challenge pursuits and demonstration web-sites, connecting the facts generated by real buyers and groups with the modern services developed in the challenge for the best possible flexibility.

Enabling flexibility for long term distribution grid

The strength current market is currently transitioning from a centralized program with passive buyers into a versatile network of lively buyers featuring strength communities. FLEXIGRID will develop a established of options to handle the difficulties that the electric power grid is anticipated to encounter as a final result of the rising participation of variable renewable energies in the strength program.

The new applications will allow the distribution network to functionality safely and stably when a massive portion of variable renewable electric power sources is linked to low and medium voltage networks. Specifically, via the growth of modern hardware and software options, the challenge will function on:

  • Maximizing the grid hosting ability of renewables
  • Raising the observability, controllability and automation of the network methods for the advancement of both of those the protection and resilience of the grid
  • Mitigating short and very long-term congestions in the dispersed grid
  • Making certain the interoperability and compatibility of the developed options with distinctive platforms made use of by European Dispersed Method Operators (DSOs)

In this context, the strength system FUSE tends to make obtainable the most recent technologies (Major Data, AI, IoT, Blockchain and FIWARE) to go a single action additional in the direction of sustainability, although presenting a highly effective software system that offers network visibility and handle, procedure automation and company collaboration for options throughout the strength and utility benefit chain. Atos will use the system to aid the replicability of services and options, integrating distinctive hardware and software options to fully exploit the facts supplied by area and dispersed strength assets.

“The decentralization of the strength current market generates a sophisticated surroundings with distinctive actors included, wherever every person focuses on the identical purpose, but has their possess features, specifications and characteristics on the way in the direction of a sustainable long term.” explains Juan Sancho, Power Sector R&D Engineer at Atos in Iberia.  “Leveraging Atos’ considerable expertise in the strength sector, FUSE integrates the most recent options and technologies to aid efficiency and sustainability, paving the way to the digitalization of the sector and a far more sustainable long term”
