Work Packages

The work plan of TILOS project can be divided into two main stages, i.e. first the stage of the system setup and installation and accordingly the stage of system demonstration and application results. The two project stages are linked together by the intermediate WP of the Microgrid Energy Management System and Microgrid Simulator development that draws information from Stage 1 and is applied in Stage 2 in order to operate the system and also produce new knowledge. At the same time, to facilitate the smooth implementation of the proposed energy solution on the island of Tilos, interaction and engagement with local population will take place during the entire period, similar to project coordination and dissemination.

Presentation of the project structure


WP No Work Package Title Lead Participant Short Name
WP1 General Coordination UNIWA (Former TEIP)
  Project management and coordination is set on the basis of ensuring the on-time and successful completion of the project objectives and deliverables
WP2 System Layout Definition Younicos
  Conduction of a complete system design study in order to develop the optimum system layout by considering aspects of the RES power station, the local grid structure, the demand side features, the battery storage and the proposed microgrid overall
WP3 SCADA Implementation & RES Monitoring Younicos
  Definition, design and installation of the SCADA system together with the monitoring of the RES side
WP4 Demand Side Management Eurosol
  Installation and testing of the main demand side/end use components in the area of Livadia (Tilos), along with an assessment of the local demand side characteristics. At the same time, demand side management strategies will be developed and tested, engaging also the local population
WP5 Battery Storage System Development CEA
  Development and manufacturing of a prototype NaNiCl2 battery storage system (capacity in the order of 2MWh and power in the order of 800kW) together with the appropriate inverters will be accomplished
WP6 Forecasting Models ITC
  Development and validation of forecasting models will be undertaken, concerning RES power generation and the local electricity demand for the proposed microgrid
WP7 Microgrid Energy Management System & Simulator Younicos
  Two partly interlocked work streams are integrated this WP, i.e. the development and commissioning of the MEMS employed on the Tilos island and the development of a Microgrid Simulator for simulation-based development of the MEMS for Tilos as well as for simulations of other microgrid scenarios
WP8 Population Engagement WWF
  Emphasis will be given on the training, study and engagement of the local population. It concerns the long-term observation of the islanders in order to both filter their needs in relation to the system operation and also measure their gradual engagement and willingness to actively support the operation of the microgrid
WP9 Demonstration Phase Eunice
  The microgrid will be introduced to its final stage, with the developed battery storage system delivered to the island and integrated to the rest of the system and the SCADA operation center, followed also by the commissioning of the MEMS system in order for the microgrid to become fully-operational
WP10 Microgrid Case Studies UNIWA (Former TEIP)
  The developed Extended Microgrid Simulator will be used in order to examine both stand-alone and interconnected microgrid case studies under the application of different RES, battery energy storage and interconnector configurations
WP11 Novel Business Models & Market Uptake UEA
  Evaluation of current market opportunities for local-scale battery storage across Europe and globally, and accordingly the development of novel business models and support instruments that will ensure diffusion and market-uptake of similar systems
WP12 Dissemination KTH
  Dissemination of the project results to the wider public through leaflets, web-channels and on top though an actual info-kiosk for local residents
WP13 RES Installation & Grid-Connection Eunice
  The gradual installation and grid-connection of the main RES components (i.e. wind power in the order of 300kW and PV power in the order of 700kW), attracting a private investment of ~1M€
