Open DEI

OPEN DEI will be an essential pillar of the implementation of EU digitisation policies by addressing in particular the “support” to the currently ongoing Large-Scale Pilots (LSPs) and platform projects financed by the European Commission under the Digitising European Industries (DEI) Focus Area working in different strategic sectors: one of them is the Energy domain.

INTERRFACE takes part of all the four Working Groups set up by Open DEI: Use Cases, Shared Infrastructures, Linking Eco-systems and Technical Topics.





The CoordiNet project will help to demostrate how DSOs and TSOs shall act in a coordinated manner and use the same pool of resources to procure grid services in the most reliable and efficient way through the implementation of large scale “TSO-DSO-Consumer” demonstrations, in cooperation with market participants (and end users).

The INTERRFACE and CoordiNet projects both answered to the call LC-SC3-ES-5-2018-2020, titled “TSO–DSO–Consumer: Large-scale demonstrations of innovative grid services through demand response, storage and small-scale generation". The projects agreed to jointly produce a common position paper on the topics covered throughout the course of the projects.





FLEXITRANSTORE will contribute to forming the path towards a pan-European transmission network characterized by flexibility and cross-border exchanges. It will develop novel smart grid technologies, business models and control techniques aiming to flexibility incorporation. The project takes both a national and a regional approach, acknowledging the need to seamlessly integrate national markets.

INTERFFACE will benefit through implementing and utilizing data management, regulatory framework and business models for cross-border electricity flows.





SMARTNET will suggest novel methodologies to enforce the local and national interaction and collaboration between TSOs and DSOs. It will propose interaction schemes, market architectures and ICT solutions contributing to the integration of ancillary services, demand –side management, congestion management and distributed generation. Different ways of information exchange and grid monitoring will be examined to assist a seamless communication between operators.

INTERFACE will benefit through preliminary analysis of the evolution of the ancillary services and of the role DSOs could play in the procurement of them from DER entities connected to distribution networks




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.
