Webinar “How to increase mutual synergies of power distribution and light railway networks?”

22 Sep 2020

The opinion of key DSO and Technology Provider Stakeholders about E-LOBSTER H2020 project

E-LOBSTER  project is proposing an innovative R+G (Railway to Grid) Management system which, combined with advanced power electronics and storage systems, will be able to reduce electricity losses in both the power distribution network and the light railway network. The system will be able to make the best use of the available energy on both the grids by increasing their mutual synergies and maximizing the consumption of local Renewable Energy Sources (RES) production through electric energy storages.

As Project Coordinator, we are glad to invite you to join “E-LOBSTER DSO and Technology Provider Stakeholders' Webinar”.

The main objective of the DSO and Technology Provider Stakeholders Webinar is to discuss specific research and technical results of the E-LOBSTER system and exchange feedback and opportunities.

In particular, E-LOBSTER Project Coordinator Giannicola Loriga – RINA Corporate Research & Development – will present project overview and objectives, which include the development of:

  • an innovative unique tool for the real-time monitoring of losses and energy consumption of power distribution networks and railway electrification networks validated through real data
  • advanced power electronics that will allow a unique management of the energy between traction substations and distribution network
  • a new real-time optimized Railway to Grid/Grid to Railway (R+G) energy management aiming to optimize the interaction between electrified transport and distribution networks using shared assets

The agenda of the event include:

  • 10.00 – 10.05: Welcome & Opening of the Event- Moderator Efe Usanmaz (UITP)
  • 10.02 – 10.15: E-LOBSTER Project– Project Coordinator Giannicola Loriga (RINA)
