End-to-end optimization of power grids, across the whole value chain and actors involved, clearly relies on the deep and comprehensive understanding of real-life complexities imposed during actual operation, as well as, on the smooth end-to-end interoperable communication and data sharing between all actors and sub-systems involved.

Both these parameters span four interrelated areas: physical systems (energy systems, energy equipment, and energy networks), human systems (communities, building occupants and their behaviors), energy markets (transaction requirements, flexibility boundaries and access of small prosumers) and the general surrounding environment (weather fluctuations and impact on the other systems).

In this context, SYNERGY will establish a highly effective, innovative and scalable reference architecture and implementation for a Big Energy Data Platform and AI Analytics Marketplace, accompanied by big data-enabled domain-specific applications for the totality of electricity value chain stakeholders (altogether comprising the SYNERGY Big Data-driven Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) Framework).
