The increasing penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) at the distribution levels brings in different challenges for electricity system management; however if the flexibility of those DER is well managed opportunities arise for coordination. 

Driven by different Distributed Renewable Energy Sources (DRES), penetration levels, various degrees of technological progress and differing customer acceptance patterns, this project addresses the main research and technology gaps for DSOs to efficiently fulfil their future roles in the European electricity system.

This is a key step towards developing an intelligent grid. A number of smart grid demonstration projects have already yielded positive results such as reducing the carbon footprint of the electricity distribution system, enabling dynamic control of wind farms and the development of self-healing networks.
