The newest member of the Hoizon2020 family OneNet had its kick-off meeting to officially start the project. It's an important step for INTERRFACE as OneNet was built mainly on our outcomes besides the results of our twin-project CoordiNet. The OneNet project has an unprecedented 72 partners in the consortium including many of our INTERRFACE partners so the continuation between the two projects is well ensured.
The 36-month lasting OneNet aims at performing this critical step creating the conditions for a new generation of grid services able to fully exploit demand response, storage and distributed generation while creating fair, transparent and open conditions for the consumer. As result, while creating one network of Europe, the project aims to build a customer centric approach to grid operation. This ambitious view is achieved by proposing new markets, products and services and by creating a unique IT architecture.
While a single platform for Europe is not thinkable, OneNet proposes innovative mechanisms of platform federation which are the key technical enablers for the proposed vision. The project has also very ambitious exploitation goals aiming at creating consensus on the solution far beyond the limits of the consortium partners thanks to a variety of actions including a large-scale forum for discussion within the international energy community.
