WiseGRID integrates, demonstrates and validates advanced ICT services and systems in the energy distribution grid, providing secure, sustainable and flexible smart grids and giving more power to the European energy consumer.

WiseGRID's main objective is to provide a set of solutions and technologies to increase the smartness, stability and security of an open, consumer-centric European energy grid. The project combines an enhanced use of storage technologies, a highly increased share of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and the integration of charging infrastructure to favour the large-scale deployment of electric vehicles. It places citizens at the centre of the transformation of the grid.

WiseGRID goes beyond empowering prosumers. On top of having a consumer-centric approach, the project makes a difference in the market by delivering tools that facilitate the creation of a healthy, open market where not only ‘traditional’ companies but also electric cooperatives and SMEs can play an active role, contributing effectively to the transition to energy democracy.

Based on the project result, CEN-CENELEC WORKSHOP ‘Reference model for distribution application for microgrids’ is currently under development.
