Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
The mission of the Efficient Distribution of Green Energy (EDGE) project is to radically improve integration of wind energy in the power grid through effective coordination of both electricity generation and consumption. Specifically, the project aims at developing rigorous methods for managing the flow of energy among actors - consumers and producers - connected to the power grid. In doing so, we extend results from other related projects, which tend to focus on existing technologies. Indeed, we note that the interplay among the dynamics of the power market, the dynamics of its actors, the constraints of the distribution network, and the limitations of communication solutions, has hitherto been largely neglected.
