In the framework of »OneNet – One Network for Europe« project 72 partners from 21 states will look for a solution for coordinated cross-border operation of TSO’s and DSO’s networks, while enabling new flexibility markets.
The goal of OneNet is to develop an open and flexible architecture that will help to transform the actual European electricity system, which is often managed in a fragmented country- or area-level way, into a pan-European smarter and more efficient one, where market and network technical operations are reciprocally coordinated closer to real time i) among them, ii) across different countries iii) while maximizing the consumer capabilities to participate in an open market structure.
ELES will lead the work package 10 “Eastern Cluster Demonstration”. Partners from Check Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovenia will develop and extend capabilities of existing flexibility market platforms for TSO and DSO grid services using varied flexibility providers, which will be standardized to an appropriate European format. Focus will be on coordinated activation of flexibility services for congestion management and balancing (TSO, DSO), which will be achieved by establishing a combined and digitalized TSO-DSO flexibility process for balancing, congestion management and other ancillary services, commonly procured and activated to deliver services for TSOs and DSOs. The cluster will address these services as standardized products provided in market-based environment.
For three years of work within the project, Slovenian partners (ELES, GEN-I, Elektro Ljubljana, Elektro Celje, Elektro Gorenjska, Elektroinštitut Milan Vidmar, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana) were granted more than one million euros of European funds.
A great achievement in the European space is also the appointment of ELES as an innovation manager which duties are to ensure that the project innovation objectives are met.
