Energy Storage is Half the Solution – cyberGRID Modernising the European Electricity Grid

While energy storage seems to be on the brink of a breakthrough, the infrastructure to enable the implementation into the grid is only just starting to get attention

Press Release updated: Oct 19, 2017 06:00 CEST

Austrian energy tech company cyberGRID has developed a platform, which will enable the future of energy storage to be implemented in the European electricity grids.

”To support huge storage capacities in the electricity grids of today, there is a need for a tool, which links the system operators to the storage providers” says Peter Nemcek, VP of Research and Development in cyberGRID – and continues: “What we have developed in the FLEXICIENCY project is exactly that, and I see it as a key to the storage revolution in the energy sector”

cyberGRID is a participant in the EU project FLEXICIENCY. Here, a platform is being developed where suppliers and users of electricity demand flexibility and aggregation can exchange services. In other words, an important step in modernising the European electricity grid. The FLEXICIENCY project involves five major utilities from Austria, Italy, France, Spain and Sweden and demonstrates how new services based on for example storage technologies will enable a low carbon energy future.

Within the project cyberGRID has developed a cloud VPP (SaaS) for demonstrations with major Austrian and Italian Utilities Verbund and ENEL. Electric flexibility data will be collected, aggregated and integrated with DSO data services. Flexibility and storage potential of prosumers in Austria and Italy will help new market players and retailers to stay ahead of competition.

“With this tool we can see a whole new range of energy services and business models appear in the energy sector” – Marko Svetina, Managing Director of cyberGRID

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
