Project: Cooperative Platform for Renewable Energy Storage Systems (CoPRESS)
Project ID: PCI2023-146017-2

CoPRESS aims at empowering electricity consumers to become actors with the freedom to choose how their distributed energy resources (DER) interact with the grid. The central tenet of CoPRESS is cooperation at the three levels of technology, market and people. The project is based on the concept of energy cells, which facilitate the cooperation between network operators and new electricity actors e.g., industrial prosumers and citizen energy communities. It will use the framework of data spaces as a basis to enable multi-actor, trusted data sharing. This collaboration on data exploitation will enable the augmentation of knowledge and of the predictive power of AI algorithms for diagnostics and forecasting, as well as the simplification of instrumentation. At the technology level, CoPRESS focuses on enhanced power management systems (PMS) and interoperable microservices to increase the cooperation between heterogeneous energy resources. At the market level, the combination and hybridisation of storage technologies will enable the delivery of multiple services which will benefit both energy cells and network operators. Thanks to the interoperability of the microservices, different exploitation partners will be able to mix and match them on top of the data space to create custom platforms for their own use cases.
