Kick-off meeting of SDN-microSENSE project

The SDN – microsense (microgrid reSilient Electrical eNergy SystEm) project is led by AYESA along with other 30 partners from all over Europe, including the group of Power Systems at IREC. The kick-off meeting of a this new H2020 European project was held yesterday in Sevilla.

The SDN-microSENSE project intends to provide a set of secure, privacy-enabled and resilient to cyberattacks tools, thus ensuring the normal operation of EPES as well as the integrity and the confidentiality of communications. In particular, adopting an SDN-based technology, SDN-microSENSE will develop a three-layer security architecture, by deploying and implementing risk assessment processes, self-healing capabilities, large-scale distributed detection and prevention mechanisms, as well as an overlay privacy protection framework.

IREC estimates 560 millions of Euros of potential savings in the healthcare system due to the energy retrofitting of buildings

The recent publication of IREC’s researchers of Thermal Energy and Building in the journal “Energy Policy” titled “Health and related economic effects of residential energy retrofitting in Spain” estimates the potential economic savings in the healthcare system thanks to the energy efficiency improvements made to vulnerable dwellings which positively affect occupant health.

These savings will drop down the costs of health care, medicines and costs derived from sick leave (labour costs) thanks to the positive impact of reducing to 15% the number of homes with at least one sick person.

The co-benefits in terms of health imply an added value for the occupants and the health system, and at the same time they are positive arguments to promote energy rehabilitation.

IREC presents the “Vehicle to Grid” Roadmap at the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS32) at Lyon


The last four years, IREC has led the Vehicle to Grid task from the Technological Collaboration Program of the International Energy Agency. Twelve countries have participated in the task: Germany, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, United States, France, The Nederlands, Ireland, Korea, United Kingdom and Switzerland. In this period we have organized several workshops worldwide with experts from industry and research.

At the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS32, Lyon- France) we have presented the Vehicle to Grid Roadmap done in the task with the objective of accelerating technology integration. The roadmap identifies challenges and actions needed for a better electric vehicle integration in the grid and a greater flexibility exploitation, identifying business models and foreseen potential benefits for the end user of 1500€/year.

During EVS32 also takes place the kick of meeting for the new task lead by IREC in the International Energy Agency on Vehicle-Grid-Integration, which will analyze different integration and coordination between electric and mobility sector.

The project “High speed and resolution additive fabrication through a new system for controlling the position of the added material” of IREC will receive funding by AGAUR-LLAVOR

The project “High speed and resolution additive fabrication through a new system for controlling the position of the added material” pursues the development of new 3D printing technology that makes use of electrohydrodynamic jets.

This project will allow increasing the jet generation speed if compared to traditional additive manufacturing technologies, creating filaments with a thickness down to 100 nm, and creating 3D structures with virtually any composition. By solving several challenges, this project will allow to translate the formulated technological concept into a commercially exploitable technology. Additionally, applications, a commercialization route and a business model will be defined.

The Catalan’ Government’s Agency for Management and of University and Research Grants (Agencia de Gestió i Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca (AGAUR)) has awarded this the project with a Llavor grant. This project is co-financed by the European Union through the European Regional Development fund (ERDF) and supported by Secretary of Universities and Research of the Ministry for Business and Knowledge of the Government of Catalonia.
