HIBRID-E project

The HIBRID -E project consists of the hybridisation of smart energy grids from the components to the system.


The main objective of HIBRID-E is to strengthen technological capabilities for sustainable energy autonomy, addressing the challenge of generating an innovative technological solution that enables the optimisation, hybridisation, storage and management of grids for the integration of renewable energies. The project will research and develop an innovative system of technologies to cope with the increasing complexity of energy systems and supply in a more efficient way, technologies and systems for storage and recovery of energy produced by renewable sources, as well as grid management for its integration, technologies for more efficient use of energy and, finally, increasing autonomy in the value chains of energy technologies.

HIBRID-E responds to the challenge of optimising the design and integrated management of a local energy network with the research and development of advanced digital tools for optimal planning and operation of hybrid networks. The project incorporates new technologies to evolve the energy system based on intelligent management which will allow a more efficient use of resources, where the environmental benefits translate into:

  1. Increased use of renewable energies and CO2 reduction.
  2. Reduction of energy losses in the electricity grid by locating generation points at consumption points.
  3. Improve the quality and reliability of the electricity system by having generation sources spread throughout the national territory.
  4. Reducing the economic costs of the electricity grid itself, thanks to increased efficiency, by focusing on a decentralised system.
  5. Optimise electricity demand and improve service in areas far from the grid itself and in oversaturated areas.

IDP participates leading the fourth work package on Digital Twins and federation of platforms for multi-sector network management, with the objective of defining the architecture of the ecosystem of federated platforms and the Digital Twin that will serve to digitise local hybrid energy systems and provide real-time optimisation and interaction between digital and real infrastructures.

The work will consist of the integration of the various 4.0 tools selected throughout the previous tasks into a single integrated and interoperable platform, the integration will be done with the tools developed to run on Edge, such as complex systems running in the cloud.

HIBRID-E is subsidised by the CDTI and by the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación, enmarcado en la convocatoria para el año 2023 “Misiones de Ciencia e Innovación” in the framework of the 2023 transmissions initiative.
