Research & Innovation layer 1

The Systems layer considers the entire energy system, consisting of the electric power system with relevant extensions. The activities within this R&I layer will be performed by an interdisciplinary team of academic and industrial experts active in the area of power systems, power electronics, energy systems, business networks and related business models.

The main scope of this layer is to define and develop models, methods and technical solutions for the future renewables-based electric power system, which makes the best use of flexibility sources considering grid capacity and business aspects in different time scales.

The Systems layer covers the entire system, once the appropriate boundaries are decided, at the cost of details. The different solutions for energy storage and system control will be mapped, evaluated and ranked, providing requirements and needed functionalities as an input for the other R&I layers.
