• To test the state-of-the-art digital technologies, installed on the power grid and communication infrastructure, such as power flow controllers, dynamic line rating sensing systems and wide-area monitoring systems (WAMS), for optimally exploiting and maximising the capacity and security of transmission corridors.

  • To develop and introduce advance software solutions, including capacity allocation and reserve optimisation tools, as well as an advanced forecasting of energy production and demand response platform, to increase the cross-border capacity and the potential of cross-border grid services.

  • To design and propose a robust set of technical and market codes (pathways) that would enable the building up of the harmonisation of the network codes, and subsequently to the integration of national electricity markets -possibly via a regional route.

  • To design and present a cost-benefit analysis (CBA), based on the outcomes and lessons learnt from the project implementations and demonstrations, to enhance the planning of cross-border infrastructure investments.

  • To demonstrate the aforementioned hardware and software technologies and relevant concepts in realistic environments; the FARCROSS project engages TSOs and energy producers in 8 countries (Austria, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Hungary, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Albania), focusing on illustrating specific functions and serving real need and existing challenges, engaging different actors of the energy value chain.

  • To facilitate further research and new market opportunities across the energy industry by ensuring an efficient dissemination of the FARCROSS outcomes to key stakeholders.
