Creative Destruction of Jobs in the Energy Sector – EDDIE Project.

To meet the European energy and climate targets for 2030, each EU Member State had to submit a final National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) by the end of 2019. The NECPs foresee a lasting change and transition of the so far centralized energy sector, which needs to incorporate rapidly an increasing amount of new decentralized actors to meet the targets

Local electricity markets bring together supply and demand locally

Decarbonized, decentralized and digital: The German electricity system is undergoing structural change as part of the energy transition and climate targets.

STAR Project: a global benchmark in smart grids deployment

Thanks to the STAR project, Iberdrola has completed the digitisation process of its distribution network in Spain with the installation of more than 10.8 million digital meters and the infrastructure that supports them, as well as the adaptation of around 90,000 transformation centres, to which it has incorporated remote management, supervision and automation capabilities.

Repsol develops smart energy management system that improves customer efficiency

Repsol has developed an energy management system (EMS) that uses artificial intelligence algorithms and advanced optimization to manage energy efficiently.


European Commission (EC) published at the end of 2020 the Digital Education Action Plan (DEAP) for the next seven years, 2021-2027, calling for a stronger cooperation between European Member States.

Digitalization of education and the fight against the social crisis generated by COVID-19

The topic of this blog is summarizes some of the actions developed by the Padre Piquer Training Center to combat the social crisis unleashed by COVID-19. On the one hand, the students and teachers have helped to manufacture protective visors for health personnel and services through 3D printing technology. On the other hand and in line with the sustainable development objective (SDG) number 10 of the United Nations Agenda (Reduction of inequalities), activating different and innovative pedagogical models to reduce the digital gap of the most vulnerable students.

New digital pedagogies on the horizon: SLEW - “SECOND LIFE FOR ENERGIEWENDE”

Teaching of electrical energy systems is challenging, in that it is not possible for students to directly experience their phenomena, so much so that electrical engineering is normally perceived as rather abstract and heavily based on mathematical modelling.


The debate over digital transformation has been on the table for years. But now more than ever, the push for a concrete shift is intensifying, also due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This could lead to an important job crisis, if we do not implement new strategies for the development of digital skills for young and low-skilled workers.

Enabling sustainable Energy Communities

This blog deals with sustainable Energy Communities, enabling factors and emerging business models and briefly presents the results of an article published by EDDIE’s partners NTUA and KTH, at the Energies Journal (MDPI).

Optimal operation of multi-carrier local energy communities by implementing the energy hub concept

The topic of this blog is: State-of-the-art tools developed to assist in the optimal operation of multi-carrier local energy communities while meeting technical, economic and environmental targets through the use of the energy hub concept.


The appropriate adoption of AI technologies will result in advanced automation processes, in this case in combination with the different types of robotics (industrial, collaborative, logical, mobile, etc.), which will allow us humans to focus on the tasks of more value and more aligned with our nature.


University of Cologne Business School together with it partner EWI (Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne) is developing Executive Education Programmes to address the knowledge and skills needed for shaping the ernergy sector of the future. Such a „Smart Energy Programme“ addresses the complex role digital transformation plays in energy production, distribution and consumption. It also offers practical frameworks for devising a sophisticated deployment strategy

Applied data analysis for driving patterns - Anxiety about Electric Mobility Range often unsubstantiated

The mobility sector and the building sector are two of these sectors with rapidly increasing levels of electrification. A growing number of electric vehicles and heat pumps in distribution grids are the outcome of this development.

OneNet and WiseGrid projects

The rapid development of renewable power generation has unlocked a change in the one-way street of power generation and consumption which leads to a more and more interconnected energy system.

Digitalization Of Renewable Generation

Iberdrola digitally manages its electricity generation assets and has transformed its networks into intelligent ones with digital tools and Artificial Intelligence.

Phasor Measurement Unit for Monitoring Power Systems

The PMUs are seen as the most important achievement in technology for monitoring the power systems.

Resilient microgrid platform at KTH

Microgrids are building blocks of future smart grids, as key enablers for renewable energy integration, smart community deployment and grid resilience enhancement.

Promoting digital Spaces in VET education

A new training program that brings digital spaces to Basic VET Programmes

MOOCs and digitalisation of energy

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) emerged in the 1st decade of the 21st century as a form of open education and their scenario is rapidly evolving also due to the Covid crisis. There are different providers, delivering high quality courses in the field of energy too. The EDDIE project explored the current offering in the topics at the intersection of energy and digital technology. This work provided food for thought in terms of fine-tuning relevant topics, main target audience and recognition of learning of the EDDIE courses.

Open Source solutions for Grid Automation

The complexity of today’s and future power systems calls for tools that are suited for data-driven monitoring, control and optimization at a large scale. Power systems need to be reliable, manageable, resilient, safe, predictable, and affordable, and in the management of these systems in the modern era, the role of ICT and digitalization are increasingly important.
