“Alpine Power Links”, this year’s regional conference of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) on 18 April 2018 in Basel, was dedicated to the Alpine region and its importance for the European integrated power system. TSCNET shareholder ELES, the Slovenian transmission system operator (TSO), took the opportunity to present its activities in three different innovative energy and smart grid key projects at European level. In addition to ELES, three further shareholders of TSCNET participated in the event: APG from Austria, Swissgrid from Switzerland, and two of the four German TSOs, Amprion and TransnetBW.
Uroš Salobir, M.Sc., General Coordinator for System Development at ELES, emphasised the significance of the ELES projects in view of a European carbon-free future. The respective projects are: FutureFlow on innovative solutions for cross-border balancing and redispatching, the ELES coordinated smart grid cooperation SINCRO.GRID, which deploys, among other things, compensating devices and innovative data processing methods, and OSMOSE on improving transnational interoperability and the interaction of TSOs and distribution system operators in order to increase the techno-economic potential of flexibility solutions.
