Eptisa participates as a partner in the MUSE GRIDS project consortium, which has been selected by the European Commission (DG Research and Environment) within the "Building a Low-Carbon, Climate Resilient Future: Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy" Call.
This is the first project of Eptisa in the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation "Horizon 2020", whose main objective is to ensure Europe produces world-class science and technology that drives economic growth.
Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve this by coupling research to innovation and focusing on three key areas: excellent science, industrial leadership and societal challenges.
MUSE GRIDS project aims to develop new models and tools to coordinate interactions between different energy systems and networks (the so-called Smart Energy Systems), promoting the optimized management of Local Energy Communities, demand-side management (DSM) and increasing the share of renewable energies in the global energy mix.
Eptisa will lead the implementation of these new energy management models in an off-Grid rural community in West Bengal in India. This simulation will allow applying the results of the pilot projects implemented in other urban areas of the EU (specifically in Belgium and Italy) in a very different environment, thus guaranteeing the replicability of the project.
