FlexPlan PROJECT [Oct/2019 - Mar/2023]

FlexPlan aims at creating a new tool for optimizing transmission and distribution grid planning, considering the placement of flexibility elements as an alternative to traditional grid planning. This approach aims at helping to reduce overall power system costs i.e. infrastructure deployment and operation costs, the latter in terms of procurement of energy and system services. 

FlexPlan is going to take into account environmental impact and footprint (impact on air quality for thermal generation, carbon footprint, impact on landscape of new T&D lines). 

The new planning tool is first validated and then used for analysing six detailed regional scenarios (at European level) at 2030-2040-2050 in order to assess the potential role of storage and flexible resources.


This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 863819.
