Grid stability


Name of the project


Logo webEU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme


To expand the scope of the so-called secondary frequency control from generation (conventional large power plants) to advanced consumers, and provide for the internationalisation of such activities.

Main challenge

The partners of the FutureFlow project are exploring new solutions for balancing the electricity system and managing flows in the European power grid. If, for instance, there is an unexpected imbalance between electricity supply and demand in Slovenia, the results of the FutureFlow project will help advanced consumers from Slovenia or any other country, for instance Hungary or Romania, to rise to this challenge.


Benefits for consumers

The main benefit for consumers is a secure supply of high quality electricity.

Additionally, as the target group addressed by the FutureFlow project, advanced users will be capable of increasing or reducing consumption in a matter of seconds, thus performing the functions now fulfilled mainly by conventional hydro or fossil fuel-based thermal power plants.

This will turn consumers into active energy players. As their activity will help maintain grid stability, consumers will be financially rewarded.

Project partners: 12 partners from 8 European countries, including 4 TSOs, research institutions, tech companies, and 2 power traders. All of them are leading organisations in their respective fields in terms of the technologies and services they offer to their customers.

Valued at EUR 13 million, the project is funded from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. The project is coordinated by the Slovenian TSO, ELES.
