FlexiGrid Project Demonstrates Potential of Local Energy Storage and EVs for Grid Services
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.
