This research project, combining industrial research, development and dissemination of knowledge, contributes to reducing technical barriers to the integration of decentralized and intermittent renewable energy. The objective of the research is to analyze the technical and economic optimization of a smart grid by developing technical models that mimic the injection of local production from a growing connection of intermittent renewable energy sources, coupled with active management and flexible electricity demand.
