IGREENGrid Overview

IGREENGrid project is a collaborative project co-founded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme, with grant agreement n° 308864, in the Energy area.

IGREENGrid (IntegratinG Renewables in the EuropEaN Electricity Grid) project focuses on increasing the hosting capacity for Distributed Renewable Energy Sources (DRES) in power distribution grids without compromising the reliability or jeopardizing the quality of supply.

The core of IGREENGrid is to share knowledge and promote the best practices identifying potential solutions for the effective integration of DRES in the six existing Demo Projects in LV and MV grids participating to the project and validating them via simulation in other environments to assess the scalability and replicability at EU level.

The main final result will be a set of guidelines:

  • Most promising solutions.
  • Recommendations for the integration of DRES in distribution grids, methodologies and tools.
  • Criteria to establish hosting capacity and to manage curtailment procedures.
  • Technical requirement to DRES, equipment manufacturers & technology providers.
  • Assessment of the scalability and replicability at EU level (from technical, regulatory and economic point of view).

IGREENGrid is the first analytical approach according to functional Demo Projects defined in the Roadmap and Implementation plan developed by EEGI.

Strong coordination with EEGI, GRID+ project and other relevant initiatives will be established during the Project to receive appropriate feedback and to maximize the project impact.
