Leonardo Meeus joins Advisory Board of European evolvDSO project on the future role of distribution system operators
Vlerick professor of Energy Markets Leonardo Meeus has become a member of the evolvDSO project Advisory Board. evolvDSO, co-financed by the European Commission and coordinated by Enel Distribuzione, addresses the main research and technology gaps that need to be solved for DSOs to efficiently fulfil their emerging and future roles in the European electricity system.
New tools and methods will be developed and tested, encompassing a wide array of DSO activities related to planning, operational scheduling, real-time operations and maintenance. evolvDSO will contribute to the transition to a more sustainable European energy system by maintaining and increasing the security and reliability of distribution grids facilitating the increased feed-in of distributed renewable energy sources (DRES).
The evolvDSO project consortium consists of 16 partners including DSOs, TSOs, renowned research institutions and new market players that provide unique expertise to achieve the objectives.
