Portuguese InovGrid about our EU-SysFlex: Integrating Renewable Energy Sources20.12.2017Media
By 2021, €26.4M will be invested with the goal of integrating renewable energy sources in Europe. EUSysflex will have 8 demonstration areas across Europe to test all the tools being developed. In Portugal, a “Virtual Power Plant” will be tested. The aim is to control the production of a dam according to the wind availability, as to maximize the integration of wind power production from neighbooring wind farms. Plus, a “Flexibility Hub”, a market facilitator coordinated by EDP Distribuição, will provide technical validations for the flexibilities mobilized by the TSO. Watch Vera Paiva da Silva, director of the research program on «Electricity systems and markets» at EDF R&D present the project.
