UBITECH Energy’s Anastasis Tzoumpas, Head of Electrical Power & Energy Systems Unit, participated as speaker at the InnoGrid 2022, organized by the European Distribution System Operators’ Association (E.DSO) and the European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSO-E) on Tuesday, 14 June.

 

InnoGrid has been the annual appointment on European innovation in power networks for a decade now. InnoGrid 2022 “Value of the Grids” looks into power networks being central to the delivery of Europe’s energy & climate goals, integrating more renewables and new technologies. In that context on 14 June, a selection of EU funded projects including FARCROSS that showcases how the project brings value to the grid. The focus throughout InnoGrid 2022 has been on how to accelerate the transition in order to reach the European ambition in the next decades.

UBITECH Energy, as FARCROSS’s technical coordinator,  presented how FARCROSS develops grid-enhancing solutions to enhance the security of supply in the SE European region without adding new grids.

The WP5 team of the FARCROSS project has organized their second offline meeting hosted by BME, MAVIR and MEI. The meeting took place in Budapest and has created the perfect opportunity for the partners to summarize their achievements closing the first year of the demonstration and validation of the Dynamic Line Rating (DLR) and Heath Index system. During the meeting, the Report on intermediate results of demonstration performance has been finalized. The TSOs and technology providers have shared their valuable input on the lessons learned, as well as their proposals for further improvement for the second half of the implementation. The upcoming steps have been identified together with the preparation of the migration to the next demonstration location. Based on the meeting it is safe to say that WP5 is right on track and ready to face the upcoming tasks of the second half of the demonstration


UBITECH ENERGY’s Anastasis Tzoumpas, Head of Electrical Power & Energy Systems Unit, will participate as speaker and panellist at the 10th InnoGrid Edition ‘Living the Transition’, organized by the European Distribution System Operators’ Association (E.DSO) and the European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSO-E) on Friday, 4 June and Friday, 11 June.

InnoGrid has been the annual appointment on European innovation in power networks for a decade now. For its 10th edition – ‘Living the transition’ – InnoGrid will highlight the paramount role of networks in the energy transition and how they are enabling it today. In that context on 11 June, a selection of EU funded projects including FARCROSS will showcase how they can accelerate the transition.

UBE, as FARCROSS’s technical coordinator, will present how FARCROSS can boost the energy transition by demonstrating integrated hardware and software solutions that will facilitate the “unlocking” of the resources for the cross-border electricity flows and regional cooperation.

The aim of this webinar was to provide insight into the FARCROSS Horizon 2020 EU research project, as well as to the recent developments in EU internal market for electricity regulation. More than 55 people logged in to listen to the talks of Anastasios Tzoumpas, Katerina Drivakou and Thanasis Bachoumis.

The fourth Plenary meeting of FARCROSS was successfully held. The meeting was attended by the consortium partners that participated in interesting presentations and discussions about their achievements and agreed on the next actions and steps.

On 14th January, currENT hosted the third webinar in its Accelerating the Energy Transition series, building on the first two webinars on ‘Optimised Power Grids for a Clean and Green Future‘, and ‘The Role that Direct Current (DC) Grids Can Play

This webinar focused on the applications of Dynamic Line Rating and its benefits to create a more optimised and resilient grid.

Power line monitoring is an integral part of the future grid. It helps with RE integration and market facilitation by increasing grid capacity. By visualizing system/component limits, we can also operate our system more safely under changing climatic conditions.

Balint Nemeth, Head of High Voltage Laboratory at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, described the benefits of DLR to increase cross-border capacity, lower energy prices, higher social welfare, and much less redispatching inside the country, using the FARCROSS project as an example.
