ERIgrid 2

European Research Infrastructure supporting Smart Grid and Smart Energy Systems Research, Technology Development, Validation and Roll Out – Second Edition

The current  transformation and digitalization of the energy system while ensuring security of supply require new approaches for the conversion, storage and distribution of energy in different areas. Based on its successful predecessor project of the same name ERIGrid (www.erigrid.eu), therefore ERIGrid 2.0 expands the research services and instruments of its infrastructures, which are now also open to external users. The Center for Energy of the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology leads the European consortium of innovative research and development laboratories that offers the ERIGrid partners' research infrastructure to young researchers and experts for developing, testing and validating modern power supply systems, the integration of renewable energies, the digitalization of the networks and intelligent energy systems. The project is based on holistic, cyber-physical validations of the energy system, which can also be carried out in virtual environments. Access is granted from 2020 to 2024.
