Building on the achievements of the predecessor project, ERIGrid 2.0 extends its research to the scope of the entire smart energy system and broadens the range of lab services for external users.
Led by the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, the European consortium of innovative research and development laboratories offers research infrastructure of the ERIGrid 2.0 partners to young researchers and experts for developing, testing and validating modern power supply systems, the integration of renewable energies, the digitalization of the networks and intelligent energy systems. The project is based on holistic, cyber-physical validations of the energy system, which can also be carried out in virtual environments. All in all, 21 smart grid and smart energy systems laboratories and 8 facilities with virtual access will be available free-of-charge for successful applicants from all over the world to advance their own research. Access to the laboratories is granted from 2020 to 2024.
