Community Energy Systems

CREATORS enables local initiators to create and operate advanced Community Energy Systems (CES) by supporting technical, financial and governance processes. With the sector moving beyond inventor-lead pilots, local CES initiators lack the capacity for high-quality simulation, business modelling and automated operations that are required in communities with a range of energy vectors, 100s of mixed members, and where balancing and trading that can provide income streams, require control in milliseconds.

The EU-funded CREATORS partnership is led by Cordeel group. Cordeel together with Spanish engineering firm COMSA is working with specialists in simulation and energy trading (Aug-e), emulation for digital twins (Typhoon HIL), and financing (EnergyPro) to develop services that enable local professionals to apply state of the art energy system technologies. These applications and integrated packages will mature in CREATORS from demonstrating to a commercial proposition by 2024 and eventually be offered to anyone who wishes to be part of building the new European energy system. 

The partnership will support in total 20 energy communities in Europe in creation phase, with 4 core sites in Estonia, Spain, Belgium and Slovenia; 6 followers in Bulgaria, France, Slovenia, the Netherlands and Spain and 10 replication sites selected in open calls.  

The 4 primary sites were the services are tested in the project are:

Creators Spain project
Creators Belgium project
Creators Estonia project
Creators Sloveniaproject
