Be-Flex project aims to overcome the existing limitations by demonstrating the implementation of versatile solutions that enable grids to become adaptable to upcoming scenarios, boosting mechanisms that will provide benefits to all actors in the energy market (from market and system operators to final users), giving response to all type of consumers’ needs. BeFlex aims at increasing energy system flexibility, enhancing cooperation among DSOs and with TSOs and easing participation of all energy-related actors through the validation and large-scale demonstration of adapted and proven cross-sectoral services, interoperable data exchange platforms for smart grids operation and the creation of required system architecture framework that will enable the creation of new business models providing additional value to meet consumers’ needs in compliance with a stable regulatory framework.
Comillas is in charge of: 1) developing the Regulatory Framework and Proposal for Efficient Flexibility Mechanisms, 2) Define the value proposition and engagement strategies of market actors 3) Guide the project the evaluation, lessons learnt, market uptake of the solutions and scalability of the project.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101075438
