INESC TEC project REStable receives Franco-German innovation award

Project REStable (Improvement of Renewables-based System Services Through Better Interaction of European Control Zones), which features INESC TEC’s Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES), received the Franco-German Innovation Award, promoted by Dena (Germany’s Energy Agency), together with the Agence de l'Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l'Energie (ADEME, France) and the German-French Office for Renewable Energies (DFBEE).

The main goal with this project is to improve and develop services based on renewable energies and energy storage systems, exploring the concept of “virtual” power plant. INESC TEC will develop new algorithms to control the primary and secondary reserve in order to respond to the fluctuations of renewable energies. Furthermore, a demonstration will be made at INESC TEC’s Laboratory of Smart Grids and Electric Vehicles using real-time simulation technology to represent the participation of a virtual power plant in frequency regulation services.

Funded by the ERA-Net SmartGrids+ initiative and coordinated by ARMINES - MINES ParisTech, the project features a French consortium composed of ARMINES, ARTELYS, HYDRONEXT, HESPUL and MAIA EOLIS, and a German consortium featuring SOLAR WORLD, ENERCON and FRAUNHOFER-IWES. INESC TEC is the sole Portuguese partner with a team composed of Carlos Moreira, Ricardo Bessa, Bernardo Silva, João Peças Lopes, Nuno Fulgêncio and Jorge Filipe.

The INESC TEC researchers mentioned in this news piece are associated with: UP-FEUP and INESC TEC.
