1 - PILOT: Isle of Wright DR SG ES EVImprove the grid design, storage, EV penetration and RES installation on aself-sufficient islandThe pilot on the Isle of Wight will use networkdata and predictive analysis to developa smart grid architecture that will allowthe Island to overcome grid constraintsand become self-sufficient in low carbonpower generation. It will also consider thecommercial arrangements that will enablethe functioning of load shifting and gridbalancing services on a regional basis.Three technologies will be demonstratedat scale using the inteGRIDy platform – ahome heating system utilising thermalstorage provided by Minus 7 (M7), a rapidEV charging system that provides energystorage, DSR functionality and buildingenergy management provided by EMS (UK)Ltd and an IoT-based BMS system providedby Siemens.2 - PILOT: Terni DR SG ES EVIntegrate offline micro grid owned by local farmers cooperative with MV gridThe Terni pilot site is located in Central Italy,at the boundary of the power distributionnetwork owned by ASM TERNI, the localDSO. It consists of a microgrid (a 30 kWprated PV plant, power storage batteriesand two 31 kVA – 25 kWt biomass CHPgenerators) that will be connected to thelocal smart grid in order to develop a hybridcooperative business model between theDSO and the microgrid based on the use offlexibility as a service.8 More information about inteGRIDy

3 - PILOT: San Severino Marche DR SG ESEnhance the distribution grid with topology optimization process based onforecasting power flowsThe pilot project is related to the distributiongrid of San Severino Marche, a small townsited in the center of Italy. In the past, the areareported a hydro resources exploitation while,recently, photovoltaic generation penetrationrises year after year. Vice-versa, the energyneeds of the loads are quite limited. In theproject an accurate estimation of the state ofnetwork will be activated in order to supportthe DSO in operating the network. Generatorswill be consequently managed by the remotecontrol system of the DSO and exploitedin order to optimize the grid reliability andefficiency. Finally, a coordinated managementof distributed energy storage will be tested,both in a final user perspective (improving theenergy behaviour of LV users) and in the gridperspective (provide ancillary service to thelocal grid or to the national one).4 - PILOT: barcelona DR SG ESDR optimization and storage solutions to help grid penetration of RED. Sportscentre buildingThe scope of the pilot site in Barcelonawill include a sport centre that is currentlyundertaking a major refurbishment in theframework of GrowSmarter, an H2020 fundedproject. The pilot intends to quantify thedemand response potential of buildings withsignificant flexible assets: in that specific caseindoor swimming pools will be heated byelectric heat pumps that could be optimizedto give services to the system operator.Photovoltaic system and electric storage willbe installed as additional flexible assets tolocally optimise building operation. 9

The first one regards the microgridwithin the campus of University of Cyprus,incorporating all existing and future renewabletechnologies, energy storage systems,infrastructure, departments and facilities ofthe university. The target is to implement theproposed solutions in order to contributeto the transformation of the campus intoan energy self-sufficient microgrid. Thesecond case concerns dispersed prosumerswithin Cyprus, focusing on controlling theirelectrical demand in a more efficient way.10 More information about inteGRIDy

7 - PILOT: LISBOA DR ES EVControl system for buildings and accounting system to promote integratedprosumer managementThe Campo Grande 25 building, in Lisbon,is the municipality’s biggest consumer ofelectric energy, with an annual consumptionof about 3 GWh. In order to more dynamicallyrespond to the energy needs, the Lisbonpilot goal is to implement a smart energymanagement system on its major energyconsumers, recurring to the PV producedenergy forecast, the integration with dynamictariffs and the DR shift enabled by the storagecapacity of cold in ice tanks and electricity inEV batteries.8 - PILOT: Xanthi DR SG ES EVOptimum Distributed Control of RES-enabled Islanded Grids Local StorageThis pilot demonstrates the optimum energyexchange at RES-enabled islanded gridswith local battery stacks and hydrogenproduction, storage and usage. The pilotis hosted at the premises of SUNLIGHT(Xanthi, Greece) and operates unattended.There are multiple autonomous nodes thatare powered by PV arrays wind generatorsand fuel cell, while the energy exchangeis DC oriented. The research activities willbe performed in collaboration of CERTH/CPERI and SUNLIGHT and will demonstrateflexible energy management strategies in adistributed manner and a novel synergy ofvirtual storage with EV charging, empoweredby advanced Model Predictive Control (MPC)methods for supervisory control of thenetwork. 11

9 - PILOT: Ploiesti DREnergy information system (AIS) for control and command distribution ofinformation in a 3-building smart gridThe pilot case in Ploiesti, Romania, is a smallscale pilot that involves three buildings withresidential apartments and a commercial areaon the ground floor. The pilot involves bothnormal customer appliances (LED lighting, airconditioning systems, etc.), as well as largescale appliances like an elevator. The pilotis based on Building Type Intelligent EnergyDemand and Supply Matching feat innovativesimulation & command-control for energygrids.The purpose is to ensure a true DR smartgrid, where building energy managementand controls systems (EMCSs) can functionbased on critical peak pricing (CPP) or otherDemand Response (DR) programs that couldbe implemented, on an otherwise inexistentcentralized infrastructure.10 - PILOT: Thessaloniki DR SGDR management scheme for different consumer profiles (buildings, footballstadium and hotel) and flexible storage types and management methodsThessaloniki pilot focuses on thedemonstration and assessment of differentDemand Response techniques and thesustainability of related business models thatcan be offered by a Utility/ESCO company toresidential consumers (not prosumers) andcommercial customers. In both cases, theutilization of battery energy storage systemswill also be evaluated. The goal is to developefficient, practical and reliable optimization DRmechanisms for residential and commercialcustomers, minimizing their electricitypayment and maximizing their welfare, whileachieving more uniform electricity load profileswith reduced peak power.12 More information about inteGRIDy
