Atos paves the way for flexible and sustainable energy flow in Europe

Madrid, Spain, 12 May well 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in digital transformation, announces its participation in the FLEXIGRID venture, which aims to make improvements to the procedure of the distribution grid – earning it additional versatile, reputable and cost-efficient, through the growth of modern alternatives. Its target is to add to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the 2030 EU weather targets though preparing the grid to the improve in renewable electrical power. As part of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 software, FLEXIGRID was initiated mid-2019 and will previous for 4 years. It brings together a consortium of sixteen partners led by the Analysis Centre for Power Assets and Usage (CIRCE) in Spain.

In get to be certain that the venture is productive throughout all EU networks, eight distinctive use situations at 4 demo sites (Spain, Greece, Italy and Croatia) have been picked, addressing the most common EU distribution grid problems. Atos will supply and combine its open resource Framework for Utilities and Solutions (FUSE) for all venture things to do and demonstration sites, connecting the details produced by genuine end users and groups with the modern providers formulated in the venture for optimum adaptability.

Enabling adaptability for long run distribution grid

The electrical power current market is at this time transitioning from a centralized system with passive end users into a versatile community of lively end users showcasing electrical power communities. FLEXIGRID will create a established of alternatives to address the troubles that the electric power grid is anticipated to face as a final result of the rising participation of variable renewable energies in the electrical power system.

The new instruments will permit the distribution community to operate properly and stably when a large part of variable renewable electric power sources is related to very low and medium voltage networks. Specially, through the growth of modern components and software alternatives, the venture will work on:

  • Boosting the grid web hosting capacity of renewables
  • Expanding the observability, controllability and automation of the community units for the enhancement of equally the safety and resilience of the grid
  • Mitigating small and prolonged-phrase congestions in the distributed grid
  • Making certain the interoperability and compatibility of the formulated alternatives with distinctive platforms employed by European Dispersed System Operators (DSOs)

In this context, the electrical power system FUSE tends to make out there the most recent technologies (Large Info, AI, IoT, Blockchain and FIWARE) to go just one stage even further towards sustainability, though giving a potent software system that supplies community visibility and control, system automation and business collaboration for alternatives throughout the electrical power and utility benefit chain. Atos will use the system to facilitate the replicability of providers and alternatives, integrating distinctive components and software alternatives to completely exploit the details presented by neighborhood and distributed electrical power sources.

“The decentralization of the electrical power current market creates a elaborate atmosphere with distinctive actors associated, in which all people focuses on the identical target, but has their individual features, demands and properties on the way towards a sustainable long run.” explains Juan Sancho, Power Sector R&D Engineer at Atos in Iberia.  “Leveraging Atos’ extensive practical experience in the electrical power sector, FUSE integrates the most recent alternatives and technologies to facilitate efficiency and sustainability, paving the way to the digitalization of the sector and a additional sustainable long run”
