The project presents at the annual meeting of BRIDGE H2020 organised by the European Commission a set of solutions to address the challenges for reliability, stability and security of supply that the electricity grid is expected to face

The FLEXIGRID project has been presented in the General Assembly of the BRIDGE H2020 platform, chaired by the European Commission in Brussels. Thus, the project reinforce its position in research in Smart grids and energy storage.

FLEXIGRID aims implement new tools to allow the distribution grid to operate in a secure and stable manner when a large share of variable renewable electricity sources is connected to low and medium voltage grids.

BRIDGE is a European Commission initiative which unites Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage 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 aim of BRIDGE H2020 is to provide expertise in the different fields of electricity grids, to share lessons learned from the implementation of projects and to propose strategic roadmaps with a view to overcoming barriers to the deployment of innovations.

More than a hundred experts with a diverse audience composed of energy system stakeholders involved in BRIDGE projects attended the event to  share conclusions and make new lines of research known through the presentation of projects that have just begun.

In addition, the FLEXIGRID project have participated in several parallel sessions where collaboration between projects has been strengthened and future challenges of BRIDGE H2020 have been discussed. This work is part of their participation in the different working groups on innovation, data management, legislation, business models and customer engagement, whose discussion has resulted in several reports.
