X-FLEX is an end-user driven project that aims to design/develop/demonstrate a set of tools, to integrate the emerging decentralised ecosystem of renewable energy sources (RES) and flexibility systems into the existing European energy system, in an efficient and cost-effective manner, to create more stable, secure and sustainable smart grids.


  • The project will create and integrate synergies across several energy flexibility sources and technologies, promoting cooperation among all the actors of the smart grid and energy market, in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
  • Identification of 31 use case-related pilot site needs and definition of 194 requirements to cover various fields of the product aspects.

About the practice:
The four X-FLEX’s pilot sites are complementary and include different conditions, infrastructure and stakeholders, facilitating the replicability of the practice in various locations in the future. In this context, a Replication and Deployment Handbook will be delivered at the end of the project. Furthermore, X-FLEX project products will be built on several tools demonstrated in previously successful EU projects (all part of BRIDGE initiative) enabling higher impact, shorter time to market and a favourable context to the large-scale replication.
