CROSSBOW shapes EU’s energy future

Speaking about European’s energy future means fitting with “A Clean Planter for all” long-term strategy, and CROSSBOW project is inline with this future. To show its commitment with the challenge, the project will participate in the European Sustainable Energy Week 2019 (EUSEW).

The 14th edition of the EUSEW will take place from 17 to 21 June 2019 in Brussels under the theme “Shaping Europe’s energy future”- focus on latest policy advancements and solutions for a climate-neutral Europe by 2050.


How does CROSSBOW fit with the “A Clean Planet for all” long-term strategy?


As the world struggles to limit global warming, projects like CROSSBOW contribute to European energy markets, regulatory and policy frameworks, and technological progress. The H2020 project provides a range of products and services to foster a higher penetration of Renewable Energy Sources in the energy markets, leveraging disruptive energy storage approaches to support the process. Those are being achieved by fostering regional cooperation among the system operators in South Eastern EU (SEE).

RES producers strengthen their position when addressing the market with a comprehensive toolset for ancillary services, while taking advantage of cooperative ownership of their flexibility assets. Furthermore, the coordination between TSOs and DSOs from different countries is enhanced, dealing with regulatory issues and market rules, by deploying control technology to promote cross-border interconnections and demand side management.

CROSSBOW defines relevant scenarios and use cases to demonstrate its impacts, considers several countries from South Eastern Europe where new energy models need to be supported in order to achieve an effective energy transition towards a decarbonized energy system.

The tools of the CROSSBOW project are transparent, easily manageable and allow end-users to effectively manage their assets and take sustainable decisions in a coordinated manner.

All in all, CROSSBOW facilitates the sustainable development of the future energy model, which should be designed in such a way to ensure the cooperation between countries for RES integration seamlessly across Europe.

Some of the most remarkable outcomes expected:

-Reduction of CO2 emissions: 12%

-Saving of 3 MTons of GHG

-Increase of storage participation: 15%

-Creation of more than 70.000 green jobs

-Over 56 Million citizens and businesses will access to better quality energy services
