Demonstration of INTElligent grid technologies for renewables INTEgration and INTEractive consumer participation enabling INTEroperable market solutions and INTErconnected stakeholders

The InteGrid project aims to test on the field innovative solutions of smart grids based on three pillars: flexible power consumption for domestic and industrial consumers, energy storage systems and forecasts for the production of renewable energy and consumption. InteGrid will install five smart grid demonstrators - 3 in Portugal, one in Sweden and one in Slovenia. INESC TEC is the technical coordinator of this project.

INESC TEC contributed to the digitalisation of the European electricity sector with interoperable solutions that connect homes and buildings to the grid

Portugal addressed the European Commission's call for the creation of digital and interoperable buildings and electrical grids in Europe. The Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) led the activities for four and a half years, with a budget of €36M and 50 partners, which include manufacturers, research institutions, distribution grid operators, IoT and ICT providers, retailers and final consumers. The outcome? A set of innovative results that will provide interoperability to homes and buildings, i.e., without the need to depend on a specific equipment manufacturer, so that devices, systems, and users can interact in a transparent and sustainable. All this within the context of the European project InterConnect.
