Project: Replicability Concept for Flexible Smart Grids

The main objectives of ReFlex are (a) to develop a replicability concept and guidelines for the deployment of technologically feasible, market based and user friendly solutions for smart grids with a high level of flexibility, and (b) to establish a Community of Practice (CoP) for in depth knowledge exchange between regional Smart Grid demo regions across the participating countries providing workshops and demo site visits of practitioners, stakeholders and researchers. A ReFlex Guidebook shall help the industrial actors and stakeholders in 9 demo regions and others to deploy their smart grid solutions accordingly. The replication concept and guidelines will be developed in trans-disciplinary workshops based on research from a inter-disciplinary research team from engineering and socio-economic disciplines. ReFlex takes into account all aspects of the energy system such as technological solutions, new rules and regulations, participatory processes, social acceptance and business models.
