Short presentation of the project

ebalance-plus project aims to increase and predict the available energy flexibility of distribution grids and increase grid resilience.

This is done by developing and deploying an energy-balancing platform that integrates technologies from various electricity domains, enhances grid observability and predictability and at the same time supports electric operators and energy end-users with tailored user interfaces.

The project runs from February 2020 to July 2023. The European Union supports the project within the Horizon 2020 framework programme with almost 8 million Euro (EU contribution).

Extended presentation of the project (with more technical details)

The ebalance-plus consortium brings together 15 European partners – research centers, SMEs and industry representatives – from 10 countries.

The consortium is working to create an energy-balancing platform, which allows balancing the electric energy in distribution grids and integrating solutions that enable hidden energy flexibility by means of smart storages, IoT solutions at the level of buildings and facilities, V2G electric charging points, advanced power inverters, as well as smart grid automation and control solutions to improve grid observability and increase its resilience.

Moreover, ebalance-plus provides an effective market framework where electric operators and stakeholders benefit from new business models.

The proposed solutions will be tested in four real demonstration sites in Denmark, Italy, France and Spain in residential and non-residential buildings. In addition, security and safety components will be tested in the in-lab demonstrator under critical conditions. To guarantee the acceptance of the new technologies by the end users, the project will engage them from the start of the project, studying their energy needs and consumption behavior.

The project runs from February 2020 to July 2023. The European Union supports the project within the Horizon 2020 framework programme with almost 8 million Euro.
