Innovative Transmission System Integration & Operation

 Large-scale demonstration of innovative transmission system integration and operation solutions for (inter)connecting renewable electricity production.

Transmission grid topic in Call FP7-ENERGY-2013-2
Date of publication : 10 July 2012

Deadline for proposals submission : 24 January 2013

 ACTIVITY ENERGY.7: SMART ENERGY NETWORKS

Indicative budget: EUR 45 million

Topic ENERGY.2013.7.2.3: Large-scale demonstration of innovative transmission system integration and operation solutions for (inter)connecting renewable electricity production. (CP with a predominant demonstration component)

The projects will address the challenges related to the integration and transport at HV level of large scale renewable electricity production far from consumption centres (e.g. offshore wind). Innovative technological solutions (HVDC/HVAC control and protection systems, multi terminal HV grid solutions, new technology for HV AC/DC lines, etc…) will be implemented on one or several demonstration sites. The leading role of relevant industrial partners is essential. Synergies should be sought with projects of common interest to be identified under the proposed Regulation on trans-European energy infrastructure [COM(2011)658]. It is envisaged that up to three projects could be funded.
