Future Resilient Energy Systems

Future Resilient Energy Systems (FRES) is a research programme that explores the energy transition from a technological point of view

Future Resilient Energy Systems (FRES) is a research programme that explores the energy transition from a technological point of view. FRES enhances RDI work on low CO2 emission energy production technologies, smart grids and flexible energy resources in the context of future integrated energy systems interconnecting different energy vectors into the electrical grid.  In the low CO2 emission energy production technologies research work focuses mainly on internal combustion engine and biogas based power plants, their grid integration, and on alternative gaseous fuels and their usage in energy production and in transportation.

In Smart Grids, RDI work focus lies on  advanced ICT based protection, fault management and condition monitoring solutions, as well as cyber – physical security & resiliency and IEC 61850.

In flexible energy resources RDI focus is on control of distributed energy resources (DER) inverter interfaces, energy storage applications,  flexibility services, sector coupling, microgrids / energy communities, as well as new market structures. The FRES programme collaborates closely with VEBIC’s energy transition management oriented ETM Programme.
