Conclusion of the FutureFlow H2020 project



The project

The Futureflow project started in January 2016 and is ending this year. This H2020 project gathered a consortium of 12 partners, including 3E. Its goal was to explore new solutions for balancing the electricity system and managing flows in the European electricity network. FutureFlow’s members therefore studied and developed technical specifications and new business models that would enable renewable sources and consumers to contribute to the electricity grid stability. Two types of IT platforms were designed and tested into real environment, managing and aggregating active consumers.

The results

Real-time cross-border pilot tests demonstrated that prosumers and distributed generators can actually provide balancing and redispatching value within an attractive business environment thanks to such flexibility aggregation platforms.

In order to summarize and present its findings, the consortium held a final conference in October in Vienna. Interested to know the exact key figures? Check them out through FutureFlow’s latest press release and final brochure.
