The energy demonstrator hub will focus on ensuring the resilient operation of the distribution grid through the utilization of the flexibility capacity that can be offered by local prosumers and triggered by the aggregator (as the main actor involved in flexibility transactions and representing aggregated clusters of prosumers in energy markets), thus providing a real environment for validating the operational benefits of data sharing.
The hub involves four actors of the energy sector value chain, each one covering a specific role: CUERVA, as DSO and owner of the Granada Living Lab infrastructure, providing a broad number of prosumers to be engaged in the project and real data from the electrical network; OMIE, as market operator (MO); BAMBOO, as aggregator, to enable the provision of flexibility on the energy demand side and CARTIF supporting the technical needs of the demonstrator.
