PROJECTS PARTICIPATING IN THE ENERGY NEXUS CLUSTER
RESONANCE – Replicable and Efficient Solutions for Optimal Management of Cross-sector Energy.
The RESONANCE project is creating a software framework for plug-and-play development of solutions for demand-side flexibility management of distributed and small-scale assets. The RESONANCE Framework constitutes 3 catalogues of software libraries as well as marketplace services and tools that provide means for rapid, cost-efficient development & customization of standard-compliant Resource Manager and Customer Energy Manager solutions as well as their aggregation services into different sectors. The results are populated to the Framework and used to replicate the services in other pilot settings (France, Germany, Slovenia, Greece, Sweden, Finland) with different stakeholders and constraints.
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.
RESONANCE is co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe Framework Programme for Research and Innovation under Grant Agreement no. 101096200.
STREAM – Streaming Flexibility to the Power System.
The EU-funded STREAM project aims to create an innovative and robust flexibility ecosystem on the low voltage grid side of existing power markets. The project recognizes the disruption caused by the continuous addition of various prosumers, aggregators, and other service providers, which has made the traditional power market structure more complex.
STREAM project is coordinated by the University of Ljubljana (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Laboratory of Energy policy), and involves 20 partners from 6 different EU countries. It started on the 1st of October 2022 and will run for 48 months. In the scope of the project, 6 different tools in 4 pilot sites will be demonstrated and will cover the geographical, economic, size and type of diversity of the customers. The pilot sites are located in Crevillent (Spain), Terni (Italy), City (Finland) and Ajdovščina (Slovenia).

Topic: HORIZON-CL5-2021-D3-02-06 – Increasing energy system flexibility based on sector-integration services to consumers (that benefits system management by DSOs and TSOs).
Call for proposal: HORIZON-CL5-2021-D3-02.
SENERGY NETS – Increase the Synergy Among Different Energy Networks.
SENERGY NETS aims at demonstrating the technical and economic capability of existing multi-energy systems to decarbonise the heating and cooling, electricity, and gas sectors. These multi-energy systems will integrate as much as possible renewable energy sources produced locally and will be structured according to a sector integration approach, focusing also on promising infrastructure and business models.
To do so, SENERGY NETS will develop a set of tools and platforms aimed to optimise, with sector coupling, the planning of district heating & cooling and distribution grids and allow the provision of flexibility services to Distribution and Transmission System Operators.

Topic: HORIZON-CL5-2021-D3-02-05 – Energy Sector Integration: Integrating and combining energy systems to a cost-optimised and flexible energy system of systems.
REEFLEX – REplicable, interoperable, cross-sector solutions and Energy services for demand side FLEXibility markets.
Launched in January 2023, the REEFLEX project aims to boost consumer participation in energy markets through interoperable solutions. Its core is a central platform connecting stakeholders and acting as an energy marketplace. Users access diverse flexibility markets and services tailored to their needs. REEFLEX emphasizes interoperability by testing its solutions in seven countries with varied energy situations.
Four key demonstrators across Europe (Spain, Greece, Switzerland, Bulgaria) showcase and cross-test the solutions spanning different sectors like homes, businesses, and data centres. Three additional replicators (Turkey, Portugal, Denmark) ensure wider coverage and adaptation. This 7-country project uses 8 diverse use cases to enable participation in up to 12 flexibility services, catering to various consumer groups..
CIRCE – Technology Centre
Topic: HORIZON-CL5-2022-D3-01-02 – Demonstration of innovative materials, supply cycles, recycling technologies to increase the
overall circularity of wind energy technology and to reduce the primary use of critical raw materials.
