A group of Transmission System Operators from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, have linked with two generator companies, three power technology manufacturers, two wind turbine manufacturers and research and development organisations, in order to bring answers by 2015 to the following questions:
- What are the valuable contributions that intermittent generation and flexible load can bring to system services?
- What should the network operators implement to allow for off-shore wind development?
- How to give more flexibility to the transmission grid?
- Overall: how scalable and replicable are the results within the entire pan-European electricity system?
These four intertwined overarching goals have been split into a set of 6 high level demonstration objectives, two replication objectives and one dissemination objective.
SINTEF Energi AS (SINTEF Energy Research) contributed to the following parts of the project.
