SYNERGY for a DSO – HEDNO’s story

by HEDNO   Big data and their exploitation in the energy sector are expected to bring a new era contributing to radical changes over Network Operation. The development of appropriate tools for the exploitation of data, collected from various sources including OT and IT systems, along with strong analytics and new algorithms, are expected to support DSO operation, bringing new capabilities and potential new business opportunities. The SYNERGY project offers an excellent environment for the development, testing, validation of innovative solutions, combining tool development and demonstration. To achieve this goal, HEDNO as a demonstration leader supports and coordinates all

What hinders the breakthrough of innovative smart energy services?

by Paul Tobin [GECO Global]   The European energy sector is in the process of a major shift from a traditional centralised structure to a more inclusive system that incorporates digitalisation, includes a wider variety of stakeholders, and requires new organisational processes. The H2020 SYNERGY project aims to implement an innovative big-data platform that promotes collaboration between currently diversified and fragmented electricity actors. This change will represent a more holistic approach that incorporates “end-to-end” coordination between the electricity sector stakeholders. The successful adoption of these changes is reliant on identifying and addressing various barriers associated with integrating new technologies

The socio-economic barriers

by Paul Tobin [GECO Global] Contributors: Christophe Dromacque [GECO], Christina Papadimitriou [UCY], Sotiris Tsakanikas [VERD], Luis Viguer [ETRA I+D], Fenareti Lampathaki [Suite 5]   The techno-centric approach to R&D projects in the energy sector has left the crucial factor of socioeconomics underappreciated. This is demonstrated by the existence of terms such as social acceptance. This term implies that the goal of an R&D project is to find a way for society to accept the technological changes that are to be implemented for the energy transition. In truth, the transition to a decentralised renewable energy system requires the participation of

The SYNERGY project is celebrating its first year – with aspiring insights, new ways of working and important milestones achieved

By Tasos Tsitsanis [Suite5], Ioana-Emilia Badea [GECO Global], Luis Viguer Torres [ETRA I+D]   It has indeed been a year of new learnings and new opportunities. The COVID crisis has brought about new ways of working and at the same time proving the case for the opportunities that lie within digitalization. In this light, the SYNERGY project seeks to take advantage of the increasing digitalization of also the electricity sector.  Digitalization has brought opportunities to optimize operations and explore new business areas. In the energy industry, the amount of data is vast, and digitalization is thus linked closely to

Presenting the SYNERGY demo sites

The SYNERGY project has just completed its first year with great success and solid goals for 2021 (read more here). In short, the project is trying to introduce solutions to help the electricity value chain stakeholder. The aim of the project is the novel framework and reference architecture for a Big Energy Data Platform and AI Analytics Marketplace, together with big data-enabled domain-specific applications. Twenty-four partners in nine EU countries make up the project’s consortium. Five of them are large-scale demonstrators of the project situated in Finland, Austria, Croatia, Spain, and Greece. Their main role in the project is

SYNERGY to actively participate and contribute in the Business Models Parallel Session of the BRIDGE General Assembly

  On March 3, SYNERGY will present the preliminary results of the business modelling activities of the project in the Parallel Session focusing on Business Models, organized in the frame of the BRIDGE General Assembly.   The business models session will offer the opportunity to the new projects joining BRIDGE to learn more about what are the actions that the ongoing projects are taking in these terms. This exchange of best practice will allow the new initiatives to optimise their use of resources and leverage on previous results.   Tasos Tsitsanis from the SYNERGY Technical Coordinator, Suite5, will highlight the
