Project Acronym: eFORT
Project Full Title: : Establishment of a FramewORk for Transforming current EPES into a more resilient, reliable and secure system all over its value chain
Duration: 01/09/2022 – 31/08/2026
Topic: HORIZON-CL5-2021-D3-02-07 - Reliability and resilience of the grid: Measures for vulnerabilities, failures, risks and privacy

Suite5 in eFORT
Suite5 role in eFORT is to lead the definition of the data landscaping and collection methods to feed the different tools and analytics developed during the project, as well as contributing to the definition and further demonstration of smart strategies for the isolated operation of energy islands.
eFORT approach aims to enable the further upgrading of the energy grid without affecting the security of supply and increasing their reliability and resiliency against extreme weather events, man-made hazards and equipment failures. The project put in place a set of solutions at the cyber and physical layers for detecting, preventing and mitigating vulnerabilities and threats. Among them, an interoperable Intelligent Platform will set a common foundation for grid characterization and vulnerability overseeing, as well as gather information from smart grid components and apply heavy-duty algorithms, whereas Asset Management developments will strengthen grid infrastructure robustness, which will be empowered by the addressed Digital Technologies. All these elements will be validated in relevant environments coming from 4 demo cases covering the whole grid value chain: (i) a transmission network (The Netherlands); (ii) a remote distribution grid (Italy); (iii) a digital substation in Ukraine; and (iv) a micro-grid in Spain.
