Project full name: 
Realising Value from Electricity Markets with Local Smart Electric Thermal Storage Technology
RealValue aims to demonstrate how local small-scale energy storage, optimised with advanced ICT, could bring benefits to market participants throughout the EU. Smart Electric Thermal Storage (SETS) will be deployed in physical demonstration trials in 1250 homes in Germany, Latvia and Ireland but the analysis will also consider other storage technologies and energy vectors, including integration with district heating and micro-generation. SETS is a direct replacement for existing electric thermal storage heaters and water tanks with a combined load of 55GW across the EU.

DS3 - Delivering a Secure, Sustainable Electricity System

The overarching aim of the DS3 “Delivering a Secure, Sustainable Electricity System” programme is to transform the electricity system in Ireland and Northern Ireland and pave the way for a secure and sustainable electricity system for the future. The core objective of DS3, a cross–border, EirGrid Group- driven initiative, is to identify the challenges associated with integrating unprecedented levels of variable renewable generation and to implement solutions.


Project full name: 
Economic grid support from variable renewables
REserviceS has provided technical and economic guidelines and recommendations for the design of a European market for ancillary services, as well as for future network codes within the Third Liberalisation Package. Services like controlling the frequency and voltage, as well as reserves, provided to transmission and distribution system operators are an essential part of ensuring the safe and efficient operation of electricity grids.


Project full name: 
A Framework for electrical power sysTems vulnerability identification, dEfense and Restoration
AFTER addresses vulnerability evaluation and contingency planning of the energy grids and energy plants considering also the ICT systems used in protection and control. Main addressed problems concern high impact. wide spread. multiple contingencies and cascading.
