The FlexiGrid project’s demonstration of flexibility measures and grid services has shown that local energy storage and EVs have great potential for providing valuable grid services. Effective communication architecture between flexible assets, energy management tools, and IoT platforms is crucial for achieving this goal. Learn more about how the FlexiGrid project is paving the way towards a more resilient distribution grid that leverages local resources for greater sustainability.
Ongoing policy and legislative change offer both challenges and opportunities of increased flexibility in local electricity network. Learn more...
The FlexiGrid project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, has successfully demonstrated the potential of IoT in enabling a centralised energy market. The project’s Task 6.3, led by experts from Chalmers University of Technology and RISE, aimed to improve the design of two markets and demonstrate them in real-life using a local IoT platform.
FlexiGrid project completes successful demonstration activities for providing grid flexibility with electric vehicles and stationary batteries. Read more about the outcomes and test cases carried out.
We want to share a short update about two project partners, Entra Energy and Energo-Pro, who are busy preparing the activities of the Bulgarian demo case.
FlexiGrid has studied which barriers DSOs face and which strategies can be used to create the conditions for more innovation.

Watch researcher Jessen Page, HES-SO, explain how his group develops flexibility services for the local grid owner.
Local flexibility services reduce the transmission system’s operation and investment costs even in the absence of TSO-DSO coordination, as long as local flexibility was procured by the DSOs to reduce the peak power cost of their distribution grids.
Energo-Pro, one of the three biggest DSOs in Bulgaria, will be choosing around 20 participants producers, prosumers and consumers, connected to its network. We have listed the typical stages of a flexibility deal.
Consumers of electricity can provide important flexibility to the power grid during peak-hours. By connecting a smart meter the consumers get access to a flexibility market provided by FlexiGrid.
Horizon 2020 projects FlexiGrid and Coordinet collaborate in this webinar about the major obstacles that flexibility markets face. This webinar is in Swedish.
This spring we started the demonstration phase at FlexiGrid’s demo site at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. The site is owned by Akademiska Hus and developed by them in collaboration with Chalmers. In the video Chalmers researcher David Steen gives an update.
Learn about the Eflex platform, FlexiGrid’s trading platform enabling flexibility for the power grid.
Watch our webinar about congestion forecasting. In this webinar the Horizon 2020 projects FlexiGrid and BD4OPEM collaborate and present their findings regarding congestion forecasting.
In FlexiGrid’s Turkish demo case, the electrical vehicle is used as an asset to limit the potential congestion-related problems in the future and provide flexibility in the local distribution network.
The IoT platform is at the core of FlexiGrid, connecting all the technology developed in the project. Controls and monitors the flexibility that the electric vehicle can provide.
Currently, within the scope of the FlexiGrid project, a demo-area to test energy flexibility services is being built in Switzerland, led by HES-SO.
