IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 7 results.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2021-2022)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at improving the implementation of Smart Grids technologies by collaboration between smart grid testing facilities, test beds, and large-scale demonstrations. In the working period 2021-2022, the focus will be laid on the development of extended interoperability tests for decentralised energy resources and micro grids.
ISGAN Annex 7 aims to bundle international experience and interdisciplinary research activities on smart grids, to synthesize them and to make them usable for policy makers. These include social, economic and humanities research on institutional framework conditions of transition, in particular on governance issues, as well as the development of processes for the broad participation of relevant stakeholders in smart grids transition processes.
ISGAN Annex 6 deals with the possible system-related challenges in the development of future smart grids. Austria is leading Task 4 Interaction of Transmission and Distribution Networks. The main topic in the current work program relates to flexibility topologies within transmission and distribution grids. The results and analyses will be published on the one hand in a discussion paper and in condensed form in a video. Communication and dissemination activities will be targeted and conducted to different stakeholder groups.
The aim of this Annex is to provide all ISGAN members with detailed information of the current status of pilot- and demonstration projects for Smart Grids. Different communication methods are used: Casebooks describe demonstration projects highlighting a certain focus of Smart Grids research and development. The Survey on drivers and technologies for Smart Grid projects identifies countries’ specific motivating drivers for pursuing smart grids and catalogue existing activities. Knowledge Transfer Projects (KTPs). allow for an interactive dialogue with ISGAN members as well as interested stakeholders via workshops.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2019-2020)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at creating and sharing a comprehensive knowledge-base of smart grid testing facilities, test beds and important demonstration projects. Furthermore the project seeks to improve current smart grid testing and evaluation capabilities and to establish a framework for stakeholders to gain from sharing nonproprietary results, advice and assistance.
ISGAN aims at enhancing the knowledge about Smart Grid Technologies and accelerating their international development. The main objective of the Austrian participation in IEA ISGAN Annex 6 is to acquire knowledge and develop long-term concepts for the development of an intelligent electricity system, with the focus on the interaction of distribution and transmission networks.
IEA Action Network "Intelligent Energy Systems": International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN TCP)
The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) creates a strategic platform to support high-level government attention and action for the accelerated development and deployment of smarter, cleaner electricity grids around the world.
