CROss-border Mobility for EV’s
The project CROME – cross-border mobility for EVs (Electric Vehicles) – is one of the first cross-border field tests among the meanwhile several electric mobility projects in Europe. The project is located in the border region between France and Germany and includes on the French side the regions Alsace - with particular focus on the Strasbourg urban area - and Moselle. On the German side the project includes the area of Karlsruhe, Baden-Baden, Freiburg and Stuttgart.

City Opt

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


The goal of the project is to propose a new offer to facilitate the development of electric vehicles in apartment buildings. It includes: - a technical solution of EV charging which can be controled and is adapted to apartment building car parks and allows personal charging services; - EV carsharing solutions in apartment buildings (private and public lessors and collective ownerships) The project will take into account grid constraints and therefore will propose solutions that could limit the impact of the charging on the grid reinforcement and on peak load.

Smart Grid Solenn
Brittany is one of the regions in France with the most unbalanced electricity mix: only 15% of the consumed electricity is produced in the region. Hence Brittany has developed several initiatives, among them SOLENN, which aims at providing tools for consumers and local authorities to better handle their electricity demand (peak shaving), and better securing power supply, and coaching consumers by individual information.

Innovative Business Models for Market Uptake of Renewable Electricity unlocking the potential for flexibility in the Industrial Electricity Use
The flexibility of the industrial electricity demand has been identified as a potential that through innovative business models can facilitate further growth of variable renewable energy, while reducing the industrial electricity costs and contributing to the European energy policy goals. In this project the large industry is working with the renewable energy community to identify and implement business models for supplying variable renewable electricity to industrial users with flexibility in their demand, creating win-win situations.

Real proven solutions to enable active demand and distributed generation flexible integration, through a fully controllable LOW Voltage and medium voltage distribution grid
UPGRID is a project under the European H2020 program that relies on 19 partners from 7 European countries, and 4 demonstrators (Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Poland) supported by different transversal work packages that define the demo scope and analyse their results and impacts based on the project objectives. It involves partners with different expertise in the energy field: DSOs, equipment manufacturers and research centres. UPGRID project proposes an open, standardised and integral improvement of the LV/MV (mainly LV) grid addressing the constraints and needs of the more relevant actors.

Saving Energy in Europe’s Public Buildings Using ICT
In SMARTSPACES, ICT-based services for public buildings have been evaluated across Europe. Almost 600 buildings were equipped with the ICT-solution. The services are designed to evaluate the impact on overall energy consumption in public buildings (non-residential). Energy efficiency investments are a cost-effective means for decreasing energy consumption, reducing energy bills and reducing the likelihood for energy poverty. The SMARTSPACES solution offers Energy Management (EMS) and energy Decision Support and Awareness services (EDSS). The solution is based on ICT and smart metering.


Project full name: 
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.

Demonstrating through Intelligent Control (smart metering, wireless technology, cloud computing, and user-oriented display information), Energy and Water wastage reductions In European Social Housing
The objective of this demonstration project is to design, integrate and pilot an innovative solution for social housing, using mature and interactive ICT, to enable sustained reductions of energy and water consumption of at least 15% below the current practice, without compromising living conditions, across 300 social dwellings in 10 European countries, with latitudes ranging from 56oN to 38oN.


Project full name: 
Active Demand Value ANd Consumers Experiences Discovery
Leveraging on the empirical data and lessons learnt in real Active Demand (AD) experiences, the overall objective of the project is to develop actionable frameworks enabling residential, commercial and industrial consumers to participate in AD. Furthermore, the benefits of AD for the key stakeholders and the inherent impacts on the electricity systems considering its potential contribution to system stability and efficiency are to be quantified taking different scenarios into account.
