Meet our testbed: Copenhagen

Welcome to Copenhagen! In the capital city of Denmark, FLOW will test smart charging across a number of hubs in public and private charging stations. These sites allow for the analysis different consumption patterns, the quantification of the flexibility that can be extracted from each of them, and the testing of price or emissions-based charging or flexibility contracts.

Meet our testbed: Menorca

Sail with us to the Menorca testbed, an island characterised by high energy demand seasonality, international tourism and increasing EV usage. Here FLOW deploys and validates smart charging and V2G, while developing mechanisms that can effectively balance energy supply and demand with the aim to ensure a reliable and sustainable energy infrastructure for Menorca, even during periods of peak tourism.

Meet our testbed: Prague

In the Prague Demo the FLOW team validates how the V2X technologies create local benefits and optimization, using an Energy Management System (EMS), which enables the communication and power flow interface between the building energy system and the public distribution grid. Its main focus is to improve energy efficiency and reduce the operational costs, as well as creating a positive user experience and increased comfort.
