OPEN DEI hosted its first Energy Domain Workshop on April 6, 2020. The main goal of the workshop was to foster collaboration between the selected Innovation Actions in the Energy domain and facilitate their specific project developments, by creating several Working Groups. To define the next actions, OPEN DEI facilitated the discussion together with the projects in the Energy ecosystem and with representatives of the European Commission, Mark van Stiphout (DG Energy) and Rolf Riemenschneider (DG Connect).
During the workshop, a representative from CoordiNet presented the project and its main activities to the Energy domain community.
CoordiNet aims to demonstrate how DSOs and TSOs by acting in a coordinated manner can provide favorable cooperation conditions to all actors while removing barriers to participation for customers and small market players connected to distribution networks. CoordiNet will also develop new mechanisms, which are more suitable for real time operations, in order to define requirements for the development of standard European platforms. The results will help to design scalable tools and methodologies for grid operators and third parties to safely connect, manage and coordinate flexibility providers.
