EUniversal is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme (H2020) and a member of the BRIDGE initiative – a European Commission initiative which unites Horizon 2020 Smart Grid, Energy Storage, Islands, and Digitalisation Projects to create a structured view of cross-cutting issues which are encountered in the demonstration projects and may constitute an obstacle to innovation.
These projects activities should contribute to the 2030 Climate-Energy objectives (40% GHG reduction with respect to 1990, at least 27% of renewables by 2030) and they are expected to increase the capacity of the European electricity grid to host a larger share of variable renewables so as to accelerate its decarbonisation.
“For this purpose, stronger engagement of consumers is needed, more flexibility services for both distribution and the transmission grids, higher levels of regional cooperation (i.e. cooperation between a group of neighbouring countries) at transmission levels and well-functioning retail and wholesale markets that are capable of financing necessary investments.”
in: “Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: secure, clean and efficient energy”
Under the call H2020-LC-SC3-2018-2019-2020 scope, on the topic “Flexibility and retail market options for the distribution grid”, these projects will develop and demonstrate integrated solutions which will allow the distribution grid to function in a secure and stable manner with large shares of variable renewables.
We invite you to learn more about these related projects intend to complement Euniversal’s aproach – visit their websites for more information.
