The project TwinEU - Digital Twin for Europe aims to build a federated ecosystem of Digital Twin solutions (DT) by enabling new technologies to foster an advanced concept of DT while determining the conditions for interoperability, data and model exchanges through standard interfaces and open APIs to external actors.

This project is co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe programme and proposes to build the kernel of European data exchange supported by interfaces to the Energy Data Space under development. Advanced modeling supported by AI tools and able to exploit High Performance Computing infrastructure will deliver a novel capability to observe, test and activate a pan-European digital replica of the European energy infrastructure. In this process, reaching consensus is crucial. Therefore, the TwinEU initiative gathers 77 partners from 15 countries, an unprecedented number of actors committed to achieving this common goal.

The Kick-off meeting for this project took place on the 15th and 16th of January in Brussels, where the R&D Nester and REN team were represented. This meeting was the opportunity to aligned on milestones and objectives that steer the consortium ambition: to leverage a unique combination of competences coming from grid and market operators, technology providers and research centres to create a concept of Pan-European digital twin based on the federation of local twins so to enable a reliable, resilient, and safe operation of the infrastructure while facilitating new business models that will accelerate the deployment of renewable energy sources in Europe.

The project will address the following aspects:

  • Digital twinning for cyber-physical grid resilience
  • Digital twinning for grid management, operation and monitoring
  • Digital twinning for forecasting and optimal grid and market actions
  • Digital twinning for smart coordinated planning of the grid
