I-NERGY aims at evolving, scaling up and demonstrating innovative AI-as-a-Service (AIaaS) Energy Analytics Applications and digital twins services that will be validated along 9 pilots, which will span over the full energy value chain, ranging from optimised management of grid and non-grid RES assets, improved efficiency and reliability of electricity networks operation, optimal risk assessment for energy efficiency investments planning, optimising local and virtual energy communities involvement in flexibility and green energy marketplaces. It will also delivers other energy and non-energy services to realise synergies among energy commodities (district heating, buildings) and with nonenergy sectors (i.e., e-mobility, personal safety/security, AAL), and with non- or low-technical domains end users (i.e., elderly people).
MATRYCS works for a holistic, state-of-the-art AI-powered framework for decision-support models, data analytics and visualisations in real-life applications. Building energy management will be elevated to a new level through improved data processing, analysis and aggregation.
The Big Data Value Association – BDVA, (from 2021, DAIRO - Data, AI and Robotics aisbl), is an industry-driven international not–for-profit organisation with more than 230 members all over Europe and a well-balanced composition of large, small, and medium-sized industries as well as research and user organizations. BDVA/DAIRO focuses on enabling the digital transformation of the economy and society through Data and Artificial Intelligence. The mission of the BDVA is to develop the Innovation Ecosystem that will enable the data and AI-driven digital transformation in Europe delivering maximum economic and societal benefit, and, achieving and sustaining Europe’s leadership on Big Data Value creation and Artificial Intelligence.
With Gaia-X, representatives from business, science and politics on an international level create a proposal for the next generation of data infrastructure: an open, transparent and secure digital ecosystem, where data and services can be made available, collated and shared in an environment of trust. Companies and citizens will collate and share data – in such a way that they keep control over them. They should decide what happens to their data, where it is stored, and always retain data sovereignty.
European Technology & Innovation Platforms (ETIPs) have been created by the European Commission in the framework of the new Integrated Roadmap Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) by bringing together a multitude of stakeholders and experts from the energy sector. The ETIP Smart Networks for Energy Transition (SNET) role is to guide Research, Development & Innovation (RD&I) to support Europe’s energy transition.
BRIDGE is 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. The BRIDGE process fosters continuous knowledge sharing amongst projects thus allowing them to deliver conclusions and recommendations about the future exploitation of the project results, with a single voice, through four different Working Groups representing the main areas of interest: Data management, Business models, Regulations, Consumer and Citizen engagement.
The project “OneNet” (One Network for Europe) is funded through the EU’s eighth Framework Programme Horizon 2020 titled “TSO – DSO Consumer: Large-scale demonstrations of innovative grid services through demand response, storage and small-scale (RES) generation” and responds to the call “Building a low-carbon, climate-resilient future (LC)”.
The scope of OneNet is to create a fully replicable and scalable architecture that enables the whole European electrical system to operate as a single system in which a variety of markets allows the universal participation of stakeholders regardless of their physical location – at every level from small consumer to large producers.
The Digital Transformation strategy of the European Union has, among others, a particular priority: the creation of common data platforms based on a unified architecture and an established standard. Manufacturing, agriculture, energy and healthcare represent key fields for the deployment of the EU strategy for digitalisation. In this framework, the EU-funded OPEN DEI project aims to detect gaps, encourage synergies, support regional and national cooperation, and enhance communication among the Innovation Actions implementing the EU Digital Transformation strategy.
The EU-funded H2020 project PLATOON aims to digitalise the energy sector, enabling thus higher levels of operational excellence with the adoption of disrupting technologies.
PLATOON will deploy distributed edge processing and data analytics technologies for optimized real-time energy system management in a simple way for the energy domain expert. The project will develop and use the PLATOON reference architecture, which is COSMAG-compliant, for building and deploying scalable and replicable energy management solutions, contributing thus to increased renewable energy consumption, smart grids management, increased energy efficiency and optimised energy asset management, addressing the needs of various stakeholders along the value chain of the energy sector.
BD4OPEM will develop products and services to improve the planning, monitoring, operation, and maintenance of electrical distribution grids, all made available at an open innovation marketplace. The scope is to develop 18 new innovative solutions to improve the planning, monitoring, operation, and maintenance of electrical distribution grids. BD4OPEM's approach is to make these services available from a cloud-based Open Innovation Marketplace.
SYNERGY introduces a novel framework and references big data architecture that leverages data, primary or secondarily related to the electricity domain, coming from diverse sources (data APIs, historical data, statistics, sensor / IoT data, weather data, energy market data, and various other open data sources) to help the electricity value chain stakeholders to simultaneously enhance their data reach, improve their internal intelligence on electricity-related optimization functions while getting involved in novel sharing/trading models of data sources and intelligence, in order to gain better insights and shift individual decision-making at a collective intelligence level.
