IGREENGrid KPI methodology closely linked to EEGI roadmap
IGREENGrid KPIs have been determined using a methodology based on EEGI roadmap.
KPIs are used to quantify and compare the benefits of a smart grid solution.
For IGREENGrid project, the quantifiable benefits can be evaluated from a technical and economical point of view.
The overall approach to evaluate the technical benefits of one specific smart grids solution is based on the comparison between two scenarios:
For both scenarios, the benefit of the solution regarding a technical aspect is calculated.
The KPI is calculated as the difference between the benefit calculated in this two situations. It represents the added value of the smart grid solution.
As the technical, the economical benefits are evaluated using a Cost Benefits Analysis. This analysis takes into account :
EEGI roadmap provides a wide list of KPIs linked to the challenges that the current European grids are facing. Three different types of KPIs were created depending on what they evaluate.
From this classification, IGREENGrid team have withhelded some second level KPIs related to the main objective of the project: the massive integration of DRES in the distribution system without jeopardizing the quality of the supply.
These KPIs are classified according to their relevance in evaluating the benefits in terms of DRES integration.
Two main categories have been proposed:
The definitons of these indicators are detailled here in order to explain to which technical requirement they are linked.
