  • Renewable Energy for self-sustAinable island CommuniTies – REACT


    Islands are highly dependent on mainland energy markets, but the transfer of energy is inefficient and costly. Achieving a secure and reliable supply of energy is a priority. In this context, the EU-funded REACT project will develop the large-scale deployment of renewable energy sources (RES) and storage assets on islands in order to contribute to the decarbonisation of local energy systems. Its overall aim will be to create a holistic cooperative energy management strategy at the community level. Specifically, REACT will deliver a scalable and adaptable cloud-based Information and Communication Technology platform for RES and storage-enabled infrastructures by combining both conventional and renewable systems and enabling synergies between different energy networks and microgrids.

  • HOLISDER


    As Europe strives for climate neutrality, it is crucial to convert buildings from passive structures to energy-efficient and smart-grid-ready ones. This necessitates the extensive integration of renewable energy sources and distributed energy. Smart energy management systems can help prevent constraints and excessive costs. In response, the EU-funded HOLISDER project proposes a solution that involves the active participation of entire buildings or districts in stabilising energy networks. Additionally, consumers’ energy expenses will be reduced through the implementation of a comprehensive framework for demand response. This framework will be combined with modular interoperability, enabling communication based on open standards. To validate effectiveness, the solution will be tested under various scenarios in four European countries.
