SmartNet is a 3-years-long project involving 22 partners from 9 European Countries, including TSOs, DSOs, Universities and research centres as well as manufacturers and telecommunication companies.
What are the goals of our project? What’s the impact on the energy sector? Who are the actors involved and which challenges are they facing?
Watch the video to learn more about our project!
The SmartNet project arises from the need to find answers and propose new practical solutions to the increasing integration of Renewable Energy Sources in the existing electricity transmission network. The subsequent technological (r)evolution is not only affecting the structure of the electricity markets, but also the interactions between TSOs and DSOs. The SmartNet project aims to provide optimised instruments and modalities to improve the coordination between the grid operators at national and local level (respectively the TSOs and DSOs) and the exchange of information for monitoring and for the acquisition of ancillary services (reserve and balancing, voltage balancing control, congestion management) from subjects located in the distribution segment (flexible load and distributed generation).
The video has been realised by the WP 7 in the frame of the dissemination activities.
