Next project: the future of smart grids!


ADEME, the French Environment & Energy Management Agency, supports smart grid experiments with calls for projects, through the Investments for the Future Program (PIA) steered by the General Commissariat for Investment. Project NEXT is one of the new laureates.

This project, that will last 4 years, aims at designing and developing a European reference software for the simulation and sizing of smart grids, integrating multiple flexibilities (flexibility of production, of consumption, storage, multi-energy flexibility, fine tuning of the grid…). This software will be intended for a large pool of user, from transmission and distribution system operators to public authorities and energy and equipment market actors.

Artelys confirms its investments and its determination in being a major actor of the development of pioneering software solutions for the management and the optimization of energy transition. To succeed in this project, Artelys will rely on its acknowledged skills in optimization and high performance computing advanced techniques.

Artelys will lead a team of partners comprising Gaz Électricité Grenoble (GEG, 6th electricity distribution company in France), the Laboratory of Electrical Engineering and Power Electronics (L2EP) from Lille, and the French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics (INRIA).
