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 INTERRFACE presented the project and its main activities to the Energy domain community.
TSO-DSO-Consumer INTERFACE aRchitecture to provide innovative grid services for an efficient power system
Digitalisation is a key driver for coordination and active system management in the electricity grid. To support the digital transformation, the INTERRFACE project will design, develop and exploit an Interoperable pan-European Grid Services Architecture to act as the interface between the power system (TSO and DSO) and the customers and allow the seamless and coordinated operation of all stakeholders to use and procure common services. State-of-the-art digital tools based on blockchains and big data management will provide new opportunities for electricity market participation and thus engage consumers into the INTERRFACE proposed market structures that will be designed to exploit Distributed Energy Resources.
