Smart4RES presents new solutions to further predict and integrate renewable production in the power system and electricity markets

Renewable energy sources are crucial to the decarbonisation of the economy, but their integration into the power system requires a change in the operating and planning model. The recently concluded Smart4RES project led to improvements in the forecasting of renewable production, and it will support the decision-making of power system operators and market agents, under uncertainty and risk.

INESC TEC joins a project to tackle energy poverty

Portugal is the fifth country in the European Union (EU) at a greatest risk of energy poverty, according to recent European data and studies, which name our country as the worst in the EU concerning the percentage of children exposed to phenomena like humidity, darkness, cold and/or noise. To address a challenge launched by ERSE – Energy Services Regulatory Authority, INESC TEC joined CEVE – Cooperativa Eléctrica do Vale d’Este to support this entity in developing and implementing a set of actions to raise awareness of energy poverty in the municipalities of Vila Nova de Famalicão and Barcelos.
