Between 3-4 October, the TRINITY consortium officially started its activities with a General Assembly in Brussels (Belgium).
In total, more than 40 experts from the 19 European entities participating in this international research effort met during two days in different workshops and sessions in order to define the demonstration activities that will be run by the project during the next four years.
TRINITY, which means “TRansmission system enhancement of regIoNal borders by means of IntellIgenT market technologY”, is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and led by ETRA GROUP.
Nowadays, the adoption of a single and unified electricity market is one of the main challenges faced by Europe. Although the Western and Northern regions of Europe have been working for several years towards reaching such objective, the South-Eastern region of Europe has not followed the same roadmap and it not as advanced in this field as Western Europe.
TRINITY will address this challenge in order to improve the current situation and facilitate the interconnection of South-Eastern electricity markets – among them and also within the current Multi Regional Coupling area (MRC).
TRINITY will develop a set of solutions to enhance cooperation among the transmission system operators of SEE in order to support the integration of the electricity markets in the region, whilst promoting higher penetration of clean energies.
This strategic goal will be driven by end-users (5 TSOs, 4 NEMOS, 2 RES Producers and 1 RSC) and will be achieved through the deployment in the region of four independent, but complementary, products: T-Market Coupling Framework; T-Sentinel Toolset; T-RES Control Center and T-Coordination Platform.
