WELCOME TO PLATONE - Platform for Operation of Distribution Networks

Our project Platone - PLATform for Operation of distribution NEtworks - is a four-year Horizon 2020 funded European project. Platone aims at defining new approaches to increase the observability of renewable energy resources and of the less predictable loads while exploiting their flexibility. Our consortium of 12 partners from Belgium, Germany, Greece and Italy will develop advanced management platforms to unlock grid flexibility and to realize an open and non-discriminatory market, linking users, aggregators and operators. The solutions developed in the project will be tested in three European field trials.
