INVADE Horizon 2020

Great things are coming

Integrated electric vehicles and batteries to empower distributed and centralised storage in distribution grids.

Renewable energies and electric vehicles (EVs) change the way we consume and produce electricity. It also changes the way those who manage and distribute it must think about the electricity system – to always provide the best possible service for the connected costumers. But these things are difficult, and often take a long time.

The goal of the EU funded Horizon 2020 project INVADE is to greatly speed up this process, by showing that the technologies and solutions we have today, only must be connected in new ways to solve the challenges of tomorrow.

@INVADEH2020 : D4.2 INVADE architecture of pilots is part of the WP4 (Overall INVADE architecture), which main objectives are to design the general INVADE system architecture and the software architecture of the Flexibility Cloud as a base for its implementation. In particular, this deliverable adapts the generic INVADE architecture described in D4.1 to pilots and describes their specific technical characteristics, components and protocols. The document describes the flexibility services, sources and roles that then are identified and defined for each of the pilots. As an example, Table 1 shows the flexibility services that will be implemented in each pilot. The component and communication SGAM layers are also defined for all the pilot sites. The architecture of pilots described in this document is reviewed and further developed in a second implementation phase in later task. You can access to D4.2 at ( - 1 week ago)

@INVADEH2020 : Lithium-ion batteries are used in a wide range of applications. Lifetime of lithium-ion batteries is heavily impacted by the load profile and operating conditions. INVADE deliverable 6.3 presents a survey of the battery ageing and health diagnostics and provides tools for the INVADE pilots’ battery diagnostics. Deliverable also explores the potential second life use cases and recycling aspects. You can find D6.3 here: ( - 2 weeks ago)
