INNOVATION & DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

STREAM

This project aims to create an innovative and robust flexibility ecosystem on the low voltage (LV) grid side of existing power markets connecting data, technologies, stakeholders and markets, thus facilitating the flexibility provision.
A variety of benefits for both technical- and non-technical aspects of energy services supporting power market and power grid operations will be created.

CyberGrid’s role
Considering that the sMART framework within the STREAM Ecosystem will be based on the low voltage side of power networks, edge computing will be used on the interface between low- and medium-voltage networks, which is the low voltage transformer station. This will optimize the collection, processing and analysis of consumer data, and empower flexibility service providers (and other stakeholders upstream – DSO, TSO) to be provided with near-real time data that they can use for enhanced decision making regarding the availability, capacity and utilization of flexibility on consumer/end-user side and to their flexibility aggregation platforms in the most effective manner; for example, in the case of Slovenian pilot, flexibility data collected via edge computing (available flexibility capacity, user profiles, etc.) will be aggregated in CyberGrid sFLEX platform (cyberNOC) and utilized by the independent aggregator Kolektor sETup for services offering to the DSO – Elektro Primorska.

Without edge computing, collecting such data in a structured manner and offering services based on data captured and processed would be cumbersome and prone to errors, undermining the ambition of STREAM for optimizing flexibility utilization across the entire value-chain (end-users to wholesale market).
