Trialog is a partner of Interflex, a new European smart grid project, funded by Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
Interflex will investigate during 36 months the INTERactions between FLEXibilities provided by energy market players and the distribution grid. This project will particularly focus on energy storage, electric vehicles, demand response, islanding, grid automation and integration of different energy carriers (gas, heat, electricity).
Six demos will be hosted by five European distribution companies: ČEZ Distribuce (Czech Republic), Enedis (France), E.ON (Sweden), Enexis (The Netherlands) and Avacon (Germany).
The kick-off ceremony of this ambitious project will take place at the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice (France) on January 26th, 2017.
In this project, Trialog is responsible for Interoperability. The goal is to ensure the interoperability of the demos and use-cases, to showcase interchangeability in laboratory, and to define interoperable APIs for flexibility. Trialog will collaborate on this topic with RWTH Aachen University and Austrian Institute of Technology.
