€26.4M to increase the integration of renewable energy sources in Europe

Description
Until 2021, €26.4M will be invested in order to increase the integration of renewable energy sources in Europe. Of those, €20.0M will be funded by the European Commission. The goal of the European Commission is for at least 50% of the energy in Europe to come from renewable sources, mainly wind, solar and water. A total of 34 institutions will work towards the same goal and three of these are Portuguese – Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC), EDP Distribuição and CNET – Centre for New Energy Technologies. Northern Portugal will have a real demonstration zone.

There is a new method for monitoring the electrical grid and it has received the REN award

Description
There is a new method for monitoring the state of the national electrical grid and it has earned Bruna Tavares the REN award, amounting to €12,500. Imagine a robot with a path to follow. Along that path, the robot receives light and acoustic signals to guide it. It must combine these signals in order to form an internal map that allows it to understand the exterior reality. Let us now apply the same concept to the electrical system in order to understand the new method proposed by the researcher, which essentially consists of producing, in a similar manner, a sensor fusion of signals received by different devices in order to better understand the state of the national electrical grid. This was the prize winner of this year's edition of the oldest Portuguese award acknowledging scientific contributions.
