Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
The SuSTAINABLE project will develop and demonstrate a new operation paradigm, leveraging information from smart meters and short-term localized predictions to manage distribution systems in a more efficient and cost-effective way, enabling a large-scale deployment of variable distributed resources. The SuSTAINABLE concept is based on the cloud principle, where the distribution system operator i) collects information from smart metering infrastructure and other distributed sensors, and communications fromexternal partners, market operators, and maintenance staff; ii) processes the information using tools such as distribution state-estimation, prediction tools, data mining, risk management and decision-making applications; iii) communicates settings to power quality mitigation devices, protection relays and actuators, distribution components and distributed flexible resources; iv) assesses its market strategy as a provider of ancillary and balancing services.
