Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores: Investigação e Desenvolvimento em Lisboa, INESC-ID, Portugal
INESC-ID is a private not for-profit institution dedicated to Research, Development and Innovation (R&D+i) in the fields of Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering. INESC-ID has a strong mission to produce added value to people and society, supporting the response of public policies to scientific, health, environment, cultural, social, economic, and political challenges. INESC-ID has participated and leading several R&D+I European Union-funded projects.
Among other areas, INESC-ID is very active in Energy transition and Sustainable Power Systems. Specifically, our team has been focused on developing new operational and planning concepts and approaches to deal with the energy system transformation, from power system management (since planning until real-time operation) to integration and management of distributed energy resources (distributed generation, storage systems, electric vehicles), along with electricity market architectures and policies. Our efforts, in close collaboration with the industry, will advance new solutions for energy storage and grid integration, assessing power quality, and reliability-related issues.
Role in the project:
INESC-ID, the EV4EU project coordinator, will manage the EV4EU project and coordinate the whole consortium with defined financial and administrative management approaches, data quality and risk assessment strategies. INESC-ID will participate in the characterization of electric vehicles scenarios, regulatory frameworks and use-cases specification which will define subsequent activities of the project. INESC-ID will develop business models, Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technologies, assess the impact of those technologies in the energy network, and participate in the implementation of these strategies in the demonstrator located in São Miguel, Azores, Portugal. INESC-ID will also lead the development of the communication, dissemination, exploitation, and innovation strategies that will enable the promotion and sharing of EV4EU research among target groups and relevant stakeholders.
