Energy Transition is a priority and new challenges are arising by the European Union to adapt the energy system to the new paradigms. The BEFLEXIBLE project was launched recently by i-DE (Iberdrola group) as coordinator in its headquarters in Bilbao and has been set up to address the challenge of accelerating the Energy Transition and fulfill the Green Deal goals.
The project, named "Boosting Engagement to Increase Flexibility", has received funding of 10 M€ from the European Commission through the Horizon Europe programme. Over its 4-year duration, BEFLEXIBLE will aim to increase the flexibility of the energy system, improve cooperation between Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and facilitate the participation of all energy-related stakeholders.
To address these challenges, the project consortium brings together 21 partners and 3 affiliated entities from 7 different European countries (Spain, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Sweden and Denmark), including DSOs, TSOs, aggregators, R&D centres and Universities specialised in the technology applied in the solutions, industrial suppliers of smart grid technology providers and ICT developers.
Timelex will take care of the legal and regulatory aspects, in particular with regard to privacy and personal data protection. In this regard, Timelex will contribute to define the framework for data management, analysis and integration related tasks and provide support for IPR matters. Timelex will lead the legal and ethical work conducted within the project, defining the DMP.
