What will CROSSBOW be showcasing at the European Utility Week 2019?

CROSSBOW is getting ready for its participation in the European Utility Week 2019 (EUW) between 12-14 November in Paris, as part of the exhibition floor of the EU Funded Projects Zone but also in the discussions and presentations grouped in various sessions.

Visitors could meet CROSSBOW project at the booth M70.h2 of the EU Projects Zone, where they find out the solutions and achievements reached so far, as well as, created synergies, participated in a special quiz and much more.

As well, its project coordinator, Manuel Serrano, will participate in different sessions to showcase the project:

12 November (8:30-12:00) CAPTURE workshop at Room: Espace 2000 room A

13 November (9:40-10:00) “TSO DSO Collaboration – Cross-border management, The New Innovation Paradigm” at the Initiate! – Theatre 2

13 November (12:30-13:00): “Panel: Financing the energy transition problems and solutions” at the Initiate! – Theatre 2



Reasons why you should visit CROSSBOW at EUW 2019


  1. CROSSBOW is a TSO driven demonstration-oriented project that builds to a large extent on top of pre-existing know-how and results. Innovation developments in previous R&D projects will be deployed in South Easter-Europe (SEE), adapting the existing know-how in Western Electricity Systems to the specific needs of the Region.


  1. The project will demonstrate several different technologies offering TSOs increased grid flexibility and robustness.


  1. Where regional energy balancing becomes a priority, CROSSBOW will analyse, deploy and demonstrate – under the leadership of 8 South Eastern TSOs, a set of solutions boosting regional cross-border cooperation, balancing and re-dispatching of regional resources by considering also cross-border congestions (cross-border capacity) and specific organization of ancillary services markets and mechanisms in each SEE country.


  1. The project enhances the coordination between TSOs and DSOs from different countries, dealing with regulatory issues and market rules, by deploying control technology to promote cross-border interconnections and demand side management.


  1. CROSSBOW defines relevant scenarios and use cases to demonstrate the project’s impacts, considering 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.


  1. 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.


  1. CROSSBOW products and services will contribute to the creation of more than 70.000 jobs, the access to better quality energy services of 56.831.418 citizens and businesses, the saving of 3 MTons of GHG, and the increase of 10% in the share of RES (15,2 TWh), among other impacts.
