Constanta hosted the first CROSSBOW’s review meeting

From 1st to 3rd July, CROSSBOW project organised its first Review Meeting with the European Commission in Constanta (Romania), where the 24 partners presented the activities carried out during the first reporting period (18 months).

The Romanian Energy Center (CRE) partner hosted this meeting and guided the consortium through the pilot site located at the CEZ 600MW wind farm.

The Fantanele-Cogealac Wind Farm consist in wind generation assets connected to the transmission level in Romania, situated in the province of Dobruja, only 17 kilometres from the shore of the Black Sea. This site is part of the demo in the Black Sea Corridor within the Scenario HLU2 “Cross-Border RES Management”.

CROSSBOW will demonstrate in HLU2 how to manage efficiently a scenario where the total share of RES a country can handle (as a % of the total demanded production) cannot be satisfied with the national RES production – due to a peak in demand or a fluctuation of production. Instead of activating expensive and highly polluting generation units to cover the demand, priority will be given to RES generation coming from neighbouring countries. To that end, all operators in the region will be able to share not only information on forecast demand, real-time demand, scheduled/forecast production and real-time production; but also a common platform – the RES-CC – to coordinate the operation of the RES generation units in the region.
