Concepts, Capacities and Methods for Testing EV systems and their interOperability within the Smartgrids
COTEVOS designed and established the optimal laboratory infrastructure and capabilities for the interoperability assessment of devices, tools and services belonging to the electric vehicle (EV) and the smart grid systems.


NOBEL GRID will provide advanced tools and ICT services to all actors in the Smart Grid and retail electricity market in order to ensure benefits from cheaper prices, more secure and stable grids and clean electricity. NOBEL GRID results will be tested in real conditions in five different electric cooperatives and non-profit demonstration sites in five EU members’ states: The electric cooperative of Alginet (Spain) The renewable energy cooperative Ecopower in Flanders (Belgium) acts as renewable generator and supplier cooperative. The cooperative Carbon-coop in Manchester (UK). The pu

European Research Infrastructure supporting Smart Grid Systems Technology Development, Validation and Roll Out
Renewable energy sources are key enablers in the endeavor to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and cope with the anthropogenic global warming. The intermittent behaviour of renewable energy sources and their limited storage capabilities present new challenges to power system operators in the maintenance of power quality and reliability. However, the increased availability of advanced automation and communication technologies has also provided new intelligent solutions to meet these challenges.

Transformation Agenda for Low Carbon Cities
TRANSFORM provides insight into smart city processes and methodologies for cities how to arrive at smart energy plans and executable projects, based upon stakeholder co-creation. This done by developing methods, sharing best practices, sharing visions, sharing solutions and breaking down barriers that block initiatives in order to reach these extensive and ambitious targets. TRANSFORM goes further than only ambitions and aims, and will define actions to be taken in the TRANSFORM cities and other cities within Europe to reach climate goals.

City Opt

Develop a bunch of applications and recommendations to guide conception, renovation and management of energy systems in cities.

Strategies to use a variety of mobile and stationary storages to allow for extended accessibility and the integration of renewable energies.
Sun, water and biomass are a natural capital of the Alpine Space. It is a must to use them for the production of energy. Besides intelligent grids, storage systems will be key enablers for a future mostly renewable energy supply. Electric vehicles (EV) will be integral elements of the future energy system. Their batteries can be charged with excessive power from intermittent energy sources and electricity can be fed into the grid to meet peak loads. Beyond short term balancing with EVs, stationary batteries can serve long term balancing needs.

More functionalities for increased integration of PV into grid
The project aims at developing and validating concepts for controlling the voltage with photovoltaic installations. The concepts allow numerous distributed PV-systems to contribute to voltage-keeping by autonomous adjustment of power and reactive power injection without superordinate system and communication technology. These concepts shall ultimately allow the cost-effective integration of a large number of photovoltaic generators.
