EU-SysFlex Final Technical Event on Project Demonstrations on 14 February 2022


EU-SysFlex would like to invite you to its final technical event, which will be held on 14 February 2022 and will present the results of the EU-SysFlex demonstration projects.

Increasing the flexibility of the pan-European system requires a comprehensive and all-encompassing vision that extends across a broad portfolio of new approaches, solutions and technologies. EU-SysFlex provides this by demonstrating different business use cases in seven field tests at all system levels and across Europe: Portugal, Germany, Italy, Finland, France, Poland and Estonia as well as a qualification trial process in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The demonstrations and trials provide evidence of how the timely provision of required system services will be achieved using new approaches to coordinate the resources, actors and new technology mixes that will be present in the future European system. This involves testing new concepts, tools and a wide range of flexibilities including centralised pump storage plants, batteries, wind and photovoltaics (PV), heat loads, electric vehicles (EV). The interaction between the system layers and actors, and the replicability of concepts and approaches is also addressed.
