The second review of the FARCROSS H2020 Innovation Action research project with the external reviewer and the Project Officer from the EC side took place on June 21, 2022, wherein the FARCROSS consortium successfully presented the results of the work of the project during the second year of the project. The FARCROSS project aims to connect major stakeholders of the energy value chain and demonstrate integrated hardware and software solutions that will facilitate the “unlocking” of the resources for cross-border electricity flows and regional cooperation. The project will promote state-of-the-art technologies to enhance the exploitation/capacity/efficiency of transmission grid assets, either on the generation or the transmission level.

UBITECH Energy research group, as the project’s technical coordinator, presented the project’s progress towards its technical and operational objectives, as well as a summary of the project’s achievements so far. During the review, videos from the FARCROSS demos were displayed. The reviewer and the PO provided some interesting feedback and recommendations for future work.
