Technical and economic evaluation and selection of ‘most-promising’ interoperable European solutions

Main objective of WP5 is an in depth technical analysis of the different DER integration interoperable solutions preselected in WP4, regarding replicability, and scalability. The analysis will be done in two steps:

  • Analysis at national level (scalability).
  • Analysis at European wide level with reference networks (replicability).

In parallel an economic assessment of the different solutions will be performed (cost/benefit analysis). The cost/benefit analysis will take into account challenges for the future DSO regarding the integration of renewable energy in high scale: connection, balancing and signalling.

The main result of WP5 is a technical and economical evaluation to validate a set of different solutions to increase the DER hosting capacity of European distribution networks in terms of intelligent network control with intelligent monitoring and intelligent planning.
