NICE GRID (2012-2016) is one of the leading French smart grid demonstrators, with a 30M€ budget. It dealt with massive PV integration within the electrical grid at Carros, near Nice on the French Rivera.
The aims of the demonstrator are:
- To optimize the operation of an electricity distribution grid by using energy storage
- To study and test the performance of an autonomous microgrid that is isolated from the main grid, supplied by PV and energy storage.
Three cases studies are available:
